With this broker you get the ability to sell and buy 38 currency pairs. With spreads that can be as low as 0.8 pips for standard accounts. But be weary of spikes in these dynamic spreads. Which is common with all Forex brokers with dynamic spreads and not a real deal braker. Just a trading strategy changer.
Their Contracts For a Difference are the vehicles that make is possible to trade indices, energy markets and metals markets. The indices you can trade with them include FTSE, Wall Street 30, CAC 40, Euro Stoxx 50 and Nikkei 225. The energy markets you can trade with them using WTI and Brent Oil. And the metals market includes copper and platinum.
What they have on offer is a very common selection of CFDs. You can’t go wrong with this.
Spot Gold, Spot Silver, Platinum CFD, Palladium CFD and Copper CFD. These are the precious metals you can trade with them. A wide and attractive range for metals trading.
MetaTrader4 can be used with them. Which is probably the most popular trading platform in the world, especially for Forex trading. Then there is cTrading. A software and web platform produced by Spotware, that is specifically designed for FX trading. It includes charting and a wide range of indicators. Mobile trading is also included, because the MetaTrader4 and cTrading platforms have mobile applications available. So you can trade right off your phone or tablet.
These are both great packages and I encourage you to loo at both to see which suits you best. Or you can use MetaTrader4 for trading robots and cTrading for all your manual trades, since MetaTrader4 is excellent at this.
Execution with them is very fast. Fills are also good. But you do have to be careful around news events, because spreads can spike up very high. This is the same with all the other Forex brokers. And they offer all clients Non-dealing desk (NDD) execution. Meaning there is no interference from dealers and you get the best price available.
They really are good with their execution times. Another good reason to choose for them.
