Sirix is an online platform for forex and social trading. It was presented in 2014 by software developer Leverate, that offers IT solutions and services for brokers. Leverate turned to the social trading marketing and created Sirix Social Community. The community allows members to view and copy other traders deals, which is so-called social trading.
Sirix Web – the web-based version of the platform – allows traders to execute orders from every Internet-connected computer without installing an application. The last version of Sirix is written in HTML5 and works with both Windows and Mac OS.
There are two workspace themes – light and dark. The instrument window contains Rates and Cubes tabs. Trading cubes can be set to include the most traded instruments and amounts. For faster deals, a One-click trading feature is available. It can be switched on or off. Customers have a direct view of Open positions, Pending orders and Closed positions. Market orders with instant execution can be placed from the chart window as well. There are 9 time-frames available in charts – from 1 minute to 1 month. Customers can add some graphical objects such as lines, measures and technical figures. The platform is equipped with more than 50 indicators, arranged in alphabetical order.
Sirix is also known for its Social Trading feature that provides an access to the other trader’s deals. The Sirix ‘Social Stream’ shows in real time deals and pending orders placed by other customer. Members of the stream can view past deals and if liked, they can automatically copy all future activities in their account. Members must sign up and join the community using their live account. Once logged in, customers can follow and copy deals from other brokers – all Sirix Social Community members.
There are mobile applications for iOS and Android devices – Sirix Mobile and Sirix Tablet that offer similar features as the Sirix Web platform, including social trading. Streaming news and an economic calendar of the upcoming events are incorporated into the Sirix but their functionality depends on the broker that offers forex services.
