The Cotation Assistée en Continu (CAC) was an electronic trading system used in the 1980s and 1990s by the French Stock Exchange called the Paris Bourse.
In 1986 the system was introduced and it went live in 1989. People also use CAC to refer to the CAC40, the most prominent French stock index, and the Compagnie des Agents de Change, a group of French brokers. The Toronto Stock Exchange used the CAC system to build its CATS system (Computer Assisted Trading System) in the 1990s. Euronext still uses the Nouveau Système de Cotation technology used in the CAC system today. The CAC system used a double-action algorithm to set prices and match orders.
The mission of Business24-7 is to provide comprehensive, unbiased ratings and reviews of the best online brokers. Trading platform, fees, mobile trading, payments, assets, regulation, education, and research are all part of our six-month evaluation of a broker’s trading platform. The rating scale was based on thousands of data points that have been weighted into the scoring system. Brokerages were required to fill out a multi-point survey regarding every aspect of their platform. In-person demonstrations and evaluations were provided by the majority of the online brokers we reviewed. Stefan Grasic, along with our team of industry experts, conducted our reviews and developed this methodology for ranking what form is used in online investing.
All trading involves risk. More than 80% of investors lose in spread bet and CFD trading. As these complex instruments allow for the use of leverage, there is a high risk of losing more money than you have deposited. Before attempting to participate in spread bets and CFDs, consider how well you understand them and if you can afford to lose your money.
