ECN Liquidity

BlackBull Markets' global network has been set up with speed, reliance, efficiency, and security at the heart of the system. We are a True ECN (Electronic Communication Network), bridging our clients directly to the markets without any internal dealing desks.

Electronic Communication Network liquidity or ECN liquidity is integral to the service offered by BlackBull Markets. When combined with our aggregation system, our ECN ensures that our liquidity providers directly compete with each other to guarantee our Clients the best trading experience.

This integrated and optimised system produces near the lowest spreads and the quickest times available in the Forex market.

The proprietary aggregation system software is one of most effective cost saving measures we use to save you money on each trade. Essentially, the more diverse selection of liquidity providers we use, the lower the average spread for our clients and the speed and real time response of our ECN system allows for this
