Trading platforms

FP Markets provides Direct Market Access to thousands of financial instruments over an Electronic Communication Network (ECN). It passes your orders onto liquidity providers over a fibre-optic cable to ensure the fastest possible execution speeds. All market orders flow directly through to the best bid or offer price without any dealer intervention. FP Markets guarantee no re-quotes, no price manipulation and no dealer intervention.

In addition, FP Markets provides access to stock and commodity markets during their pre-open and pre-close phases. Many investors and traders look to pre-market trading activity to assess the strength and direction of the market during the regular trading session.

FP Markets supports MT4, MT5 as well as IRESS Viewpoint platform, a web-based online trading platform. MetaTrader 4 and its successor platform, MetaTrader 5, are the world's leading retail Forex trading platforms. Enjoy one-click trading from the charts, real-time prices as well as automated trading strategies through the use of Expert Advisors (EAs). FP Markets supports all EAs, including hedging and scalping bots. Create your own or download others from the MQL5 community.

Importantly, the range of markets you can invest in will vary with your chosen platform. IRESS supports a much broader range of Direct Market Access financial instruments than MT4 or MT5. If you are primarily interested in equities, you should open an IRESS account.

Copy trading is available through Myfxbook autotrade as well as MQL5 signals. Swap-free MetaTrader accounts, also known as Islamic accounts, are also available upon request. An administration fee applies to these accounts for positions held over two consecutive trading days.

Of note, FP Markets allows you to open more than one account, so you can enjoy the best of what MetaTrader and IRESS have to offer. Visit FPMarkets.com for more information.
