About gnuTrade

gnuTrade (pronounced “noo-trade”) is a financial trading company that brings new ways to trade the markets and a completely new type of trading screen. gnuTrade was founded by Lieven Van Marcke, an experienced financial trader who felt that conventional trading platforms were more complicated than they needed to be and were preventing people from exploring their trading potential. Mr Van Marcke then teamed up with programmers and design specialists to rethink the way financial data is displayed and conveyed to traders. They came up with the unique, game-like trading platform that is gnuTrade and also created new, easier ways to bet on the world markets.  GnuTrade has offices and development teams in the UK, Curacao, Chile, India, Spain and South Africa.
