Interesting... when I look at the core of the program, I find TSS (C) all over the place within the DLL's and other components... which to me means that only way to legally have the TSS software core would be if it was licensed to you.. which would mean you dont own it, but rather you license it as a white label...
hmmmm... I won’t speculate as to ownership, specially when FXCM is stating that TSS was only one participant amongst many, and as such representing the extent of TSS's involvement as not the differentiating factor for the platform (when in fact it appears as if they have written pretty much all the code)... but it looks like by your statement that you believe the same thing I do as to the involvement of TSS on ST.
I find FXCM's statement thus far to be disingenuous as to the origin of the platform... specially when all indications point to StrategyTrader being a by-product of MC (white label) as all it takes is to look at any of the DLL's or components and finds the same exact core engine and code from MC created by TSS, and TSS (c) plastered all over the code, and also.. all you have to do is basically put the products side by side and compare..
is it really hard to provide a direct and clear answer? IMO, no... but who knows.. perhaps the terms of licensing with TSS where such that it does not allow for that disclosure.
so I find this discussion to be a futile effort given the co. answers so far...
