Institutional Tools

Edge Exclusives

Core inter-banking Spreads, Best Execution or Multi-Asset Class solutions are a must in today’s competitive marketplace. That said, is this really the absolute best one can deliver to empower and enhance end-clients’ trading experience?

Knowledge is key. No individual can constantly keep up with and interpret uninterrupted flows of information coming from all around the world. The Financial Markets are difficult to access and investments decisions are not an exact science yet are increasingly complex. Edge’s exclusive added-value services such as Institutional-Grade Market Research & Tools make our MT4+ offering one of the most comprehensive and desirable in the marketplace!

Institutional-Grade Tools

  • Two Questions:
    - What do Top Banking Institutions such as UBS Switzerland, UBS Germany, Citi Germany, Citi France, Citi Netherlands, DAB Bank, DZ Bank and more, have in common? 
    - And what does Edge’s MT4+ offer that no other retail Brokers’ MT4 platforms have on offer?
  • One Answer:
    A German engineered Institutional-Grade Price Pattern Detection tool.

Edge Patternscout

Edge PATTERNSCOUTTechnical Analysis is a popular and effective approach for predicting price performance; nevertheless it remains time and resource intensive. With Patternscout, Retail Traders benefit from the full potential of Institutional-Grade technical chart analysis, without doing the analyses themselves.

Selected by Tier1 Banks to service their most valued High-End Clients, this professional state-of-the-art chart analysis tool detects price patterns by automatically scanning thousands of Instruments across all available Asset Classes, and calculates instrument price targets in real time, hence generating reliable trading opportunities. It relies on push technology to ensure trading information and recommendations are instantaneously available to the end-user.

Initially composed of an HTML5 frontend and a data feed generated from the backend, Edge is currently integrating this software into its own MT4+ platform in order to distribute it to its Clients and Partners in full exclusivity across the MT4 brokerage marketplace.

Patternscout certainly is the latest and most advanced Chart Pattern Recognition tool currently available on the market. The capabilities, logics and automation of this software are beyond those of any other common PRS tools, notably the Autochartist.

This is the reason why Edge as much as DZ, DAB, Citi, or UBS selected this tool over all others. This also is the reason why Patternscout’s developers chose not to distribute this powerful piece of software via any other less ethical Retail Broker (i.e. not to jeopardize the performance of the software) and instead retained Edge’s fully transparent and direct model accordingly.

A decision which we at Edge Brokers believe to be self-explanatory.
