Introduction

The Sirix online trading platform was founded in 2014 by Leverate, a well-established software service provider for foreign currency exchange trading brokerages. Leverate has head offices located around the world including in the cities of Tel Aviv, Limassol, Hong Kong, Kiev, and Shanghai. The Sirix trading platform was developed and created through a conglomeration between these offices and is therefore well rounded and suited for the international forex markets.

This statement is proven true by the numerous awards the platform has been presented by various leaders in the Forex industry. For instance, Leverate was awarded the number 8 spot as one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 awards in 2014, which was the same year the Sirix trading platform was released to the public. As well, Leverate was awarded the “Top Software Provider” in both 2013 and 2014 at the Moscow Forex Expo. Another notable award Leverate won because of the Sirix trading platform is the “Best Forex Software Developer Award of 2014” in the China Online Trading Awards. These awards are highly notable and well respected across the entire online trading industry.

Since Sirix is such a highly awarded and recognized online trading platform, it has been adopted by over 100 international online trading brokerages. Most notably are the CMSTrader, SunBirdFX, and IronFX trading brokerages. All these brokerages mentioned here, and more are reputable companies offering reliable online trading services thanks to the Sirix trading platform. The platform is available all over the world with zero restrictions and is therefore internationally recognized and supports over 18 different languages.
