By 'specific' platforms are meant CFD forex brokers that offer proprietary trading platforms, developed either in-house by the broker or by other companies specifically for each brokerage. This list also includes brokers that offer lesser known unique trading platforms that are not widely used today.
A proprietary trading platform may sometimes be a good alternative for CFD traders looking for unique and innovative approaches to trading. Quite often, traders find that these platforms are indeed better and easier to use than some of the more widely used platforms like the MetaTrader 4 and 5. If you are not overly happy with these large platforms, it may therefore be a good idea to take a closer look at some of the CFD & forex brokers in this category.
