How BlackBull Markets works
We are a No-Dealing Desk Broker (NDD), with Straight Through Processing (STP) all done on a true ECN.
We are a True ECN (Electronic Communication Network), bridging our clients directly to the markets without any internal dealing desks.
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.
In order for BlackBull to offer the lowest spreads to our clients, we use a number of liquidity providers. To achieve this, major liquidity providers include the Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Citibank, Barclays, RBS, Credit Suisse, Commerzbank, ABN AMRO and BNP Paribas.
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.
When you place a trade, it is processed by the cheapest current liquidity provider we have in our system during that instance, to make sure you get the best possible price available.
We consider this statement to be paramount. As such, we deliver clients the ultimate trading advantage, offering:
Proprietary aggregation software
Institutional level spreads
Depth of Market
Lowest possible latency
Our exchange prices are determined by taking the best bid and ask price spreads being offered across our multiple liquidity providers and quoting them in real-time for our clients.
The Client understands and acknowledges that the Company will enter into Transactions with the Client either as principal (counterparty) or an agent. The Company will be the contractual counterparty to the Client.
The Company’s Buy/Sell prices for a given CFD are calculated by reference to the price of the relevant Underlying Asset. Thirdparty reputable external resources (i.e. feed providers) obtain prices (Buy/Sell prices) of the Underlying Asset for a given CFD. The Company then uses the prices given by the feed providers to calculate their own tradable prices for a given CFD. The Company adjusts the Spread (i.e. the difference between the Buy/Sell prices), hence the prices it quotes to Clients compared to the prices it obtains from third party external reference sources may differ, as they include a Spread adjustment. The Company provides Quotes by considering the Underlying Asset price. The Client acknowledges that such Quotes will be set by the Company at its absolute discretion.
