Platforms FAQs

Trading platforms come with broad-based functionality including live charting, market depth, analysis tools, and other real-time data to help traders with decision-making.

MT4 was designed specifically for Forex traders, and therefore has features and functionalities that are focused on the Forex market while remaining simple and straightforward in executing CFD trades. MT5 is a platform for multi-asset trading, and CFD traders can access more technical indicators and timeframes, an economic calendar, and more order types.

Regardless of the platform used, all traders can benefit from competitive rates and superior conditions. These depend on the broker they choose and can enhance trading significantly.

Online trading platforms are secure, and keep funds segregated in client accounts. This protects your assets in case of the platform going down. Of course, your capital is always at risk in a live trading scenario, and you need to be aware of the risks incurred with each trade. Especially when copy trading or using algorithmic strategies, you should be aware that your balance can decrease even when you are not monitoring your portfolio.
