Our goal is to provide superior execution, and our mission is to pioneer ever-increasing levels of quality pricing, transparency and execution services, the bedrock of your trading experience.
Trades execute quickly on the award-winning Trading Station and the industry-standard MT4 platforms. This execution model gives you access to buy and sell prices streamed directly from several liquidity providers. You can trade confidently in all market conditions because your stops, limits and entry orders are invisible to these price providers, resulting in an environment free of price manipulation.
This model promotes efficiency and competition for market pricing but there are certain limitations to liquidity that can affect the final execution of your order. In fact, a recent execution study shows our retail client order prices to be better than the Futures Market and Interbank Market prices for forex 1. When you're a serious trader, you demand the best broker for executing your trading strategies. We stream real market prices to you from our liquidity providers, with no dealer intervention.
Other brokers may impose minimum stop and limit distances on all their products. Are you an algo trader, or you like to use MT4's Expert Advisors? Our index and commodity execution is designed for short-term, high-frequency traders, but you can trade big or small, using your favorite trading strategy.
