Strategic Thought Ltd, the e-Engineering company, has written a new financial trading game for Avatrade Ltd called SpotFred.com. The game is based on foreign exchange trading where players buy tokens to play for a day and test their skill. There is a longer term game where players have a nominal $50,000,000 to trade with a prize every month for the player who has made the greatest gains. A built-in bulletin board enables fellow players to keep up to date.

SpotFred.com has been a great hit with city traders and consumers alike who enjoy playing the game in their leisure times. However, SpotFred.com also has a serious side, it has been designed to be as realistic as possible by using real time on-line prices and data, which makes it suitable for training purposes. The charge of $10 per day is paid using a credit card payment system based on proven and secure technology.

Strategic Thought, the e-engineering company, handled the whole project from requirements definition and graphic design support to definition of the technical architecture, security and deployment model. The entire process took just 12 weeks to complete. Avatrade will be retaining Strategic Thought to further develop the game and for long term support.

Tony Coveney, managing director of Avatrade commented, "Strategic Thought’s experience of city-based applications together with their ability to translate ideas into requirements made them the ideal partners to help Avatrade turn our concept into a fully fledged system."

Richard Higgs, managing director of Strategic Thought added, "SpotFred.com was based on markets expertise provide by Avatrade and supported by city experience from Strategic Thought. It was challenging due to the tight time scales and the complex technical architecture, but it has certainly been one of our most entertaining projects."
