One of those key developments is the X-Gen Trading platform recently introduced. According to BGL;
The platform is set to change the structure of transaction in the market as it allows order automation, multiple channels interaction and real time integration of stockbrokers’ web access to the market such that investors can see and may be trade directly through their brokers’ platform real time. The learning curve for brokers on the use of the newly installed X-Gen trading platform is expected to contribute to the current drag in the performance of the stock market in the last quarter of the year.
