It is because cTrader trading platform doesn’t allow brokers to connect to non-reputable price sources.

They only allow your broker to take liquidity and market data from other trusted and established industry leaders with a glowing reputation.

This is the basic protocol by Spotware, the developer of cTrader trading platform.

Both A-book & B-book are allowed

Although cTrader trading platform allows brokers to process orders with both ‘A-book’ and ‘B-book’ mode.

A-book refers to when a broker only acts as a broker and send all traders’ orders to their ‘Liquidity Providers’.

It is often referred as STP or ECN execution.

STP stands for Straight Through Processing and ECN stands for Electronic Communication Network.

B-book refers to when a broker hedges traders’ orders, as in the broker places counter order against traders’ orders.

It is often called as ‘Market Maker’ model but it does not necessarily mean that the broker is manipulating the prices.

In this model, cTrader trading platform makes sure that brokers can only act as a pure ‘Liquidity Provider’ but not being able to manipulate or process orders in favor of them.
