Btw, I’ve been working at FF for over five years and can vouch that this is an awesome company to work for. ;)

Broker Quotes redesign

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

We recently launched a new interface for Broker Quotes, FF’s groundbreaking aggregator of quotes from forex brokers.

Broker Quotes was initially designed to fit in FF’s left column – now it’s in a half-page format on the Market page, under the Composite Quotes table. With more room we’re able to show more pre-click information, the most useful of which is the spread (in pips) from each broker. The new Broker Quotes also includes FF’s recently-developed ‘Live’ setting, which streams data without interaction. Just check the box in the top right corner and quotes will update automatically.

Like the original design, you can control the ‘Composite’ quote by choosing four brokers from a list of industry leaders, each whom supply FF with a direct connection to their standard retail rates. The Composite is very flexible, allowing for any number of broker combinations, including designating all slots to the same broker.

Broker Quotes is still in beta as we’re working on some issues at market open and market close, but overall it should be pretty solid. If you find a bug it would be most appreciated if you let us know!
