History

Established in Chicago in 2003, Cunningham Trading Systems (CTS) was founded by Bill Cunningham and Andrew Busby. In 2004, Nate Ostrye joined CTS as a partner.

A veteran floor trader, Cunningham required an electronic trading platform to meet the growing needs of his customers. As a result, Cunningham teamed with Busby to create a trading platform for professionals. CTS now also widely serves retail and institutional traders, with the firm now supplementing its core trading product with charts, market profiles, news and a mobile application.

On February 18, 2008, FCMs, traders, brokers and others began to use Strategy Runner’s professional trading platform and server-based algorithmic trading solutions through the CTS API.

On July 15, 2008, CTS announced the release of its newest product, T4 Mobile, the latest in CTS’s family of trading software products for professional and retail traders.[3] T4 Mobile began offering support for the T-Mobile G1 phone running Google's Android on Oct. 31, 2008. This enables users to watch market activity, monitor positions, add new orders and revise existing orders from the palm of their hand.[4] In Jan. 2009, CTS released a charting and news package for T4 Desktop built directly into the front end. View and configure studies and overlays including Bollinger Bands, Keltner Channels, Relative Strength Indexes, and more.[5]

CTS settled a lawsuit filed by Trading Technologies over patent infringement on Jan. 24, 2011.[6]
