BESTDirect® FAST, Powered by PFGBEST® Electronic Trading Platform for Active Traders To Execute Dynamic Orders and Strategies Online

CHICAGO, February 1, 2012 – PFGBEST today announced availability of the dynamic "Focus And Select Technology" (FAST) for active traders on its proprietary BESTDirect trading platform.

BESTDirect FAST, powered by PFGBEST (BESTDirect FAST) gives online futures traders a new generation of order entry and system tracking capabilities that include implementation of advanced order management strategies and automated trading programs.

BESTDirect FAST enables traders to place fast dynamic orders such as bracket orders, trailing stops, OCOs (One-Cancels-the-Other orders), break-even stops and more, using traditional screens, and by trading directly through the charts.

"This allows futures day traders to autotrade systems using easy menu steps rather than having to hire and wait for costly, customized software programming," said PFGBEST President and Chief Operating Officer Russ Wasendorf, Jr. "BESTDirect FAST saves time and costs for the end user, and enhances risk management capabilities," he said.

Some of the characteristics of BESTDirect FAST are reliable tick charts overlaid with studies that are customized to fit certain trading systems. Traders benefit from the flexibility and functionality of individualized charts that accommodate their personal trading style. All of this can be displayed on one screen along with positions, other account management information, and current markets.

BEST Direct FAST is backed up and synchronized with the standard BESTDirect online platform, used by novice and professional traders since 1998. BESTDirect FAST is technology that benefits both retail and institutional trader clients of PFGBEST. To learn more and get a free demo account, please visit
