In 2007, the group was acquired by a joint venture between the UK-based JRJ Group and the Netherlands-based BXR Group, whereupon TradIndex was relaunched with a new name – ETX Capital. ETX is an acronym for the services the company offers; Electronic Trading, Telephone Trading and Execution Services.[2][3][better source needed] Through those mediums the firm offers clients the ability to trade Forex, Indices, Equities and Commodities.
