CMS Forex launches VDI – Virtual Desktop Interface service for forex trading. This service, which is similar to VPS, allows traders to access their demo or live accounts from any location. VDI supports MT4, ForexTraderPro and the VT Trader 2.0 charting package.

The really nice part about this service is that traders receive a dedicated virtual machine instead of just space on a shared server like they do with most similar products.

CMS was acquired by Gain Capital, but the VT Trader platform, which was in high demand from clients, continued independently and available for Gain clients.

For more details about VDI, here’s the full press release:

Capital Market Services LLC, a leading Forex brokerage firm, has partnered with Red Paladin Inc., a technology firm that specializes in Cloud Services, to offer the CMS Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) for forex trading.

CMS VDI supports MetaTrader 4, ForexTraderPro and VT Trader 2.0. Using a browser window, traders can access their demo or live accounts on their virtual environment from anywhere and place trades, upload and configure EA’s, set preferences, and even request custom applications or tools such as Autochartist or Microsoft Excel.

VDI services take the traditional forex VPS model to the next level by offering traders a dedicated virtualized machine as opposed to space on a large shared server like most standard VPS products.   This service eliminates the need for physical hardware and its associated performance limitations, and protects users from the risks associated with conducting financial transactions on a shared network.

CMS VDI users’ machines live on a managed dedicated network where traders can leverage Red Paladin’s resources for blazing fast and consistent execution speeds from anywhere in the world. “The ability to run your EAs or any automated trading system in a professional server environment, without the worries of having to leave your home or office computer running and supported 24 hours a day is a major plus for serious traders,” stated Joshua Bernstein, Director of Sales and Marketing at CMS Forex.

VDI services are fully accessible from most mobile devices and experiencing MT4 or VT Trader on your iPad is a “revolutionary way to trade on the go” according to Mr. Bernstein. CMS VDI is free for active CMS clients and is available to anyone for $40 a month.   Visit here to learn more.
