Dynamic charting capability

Our comprehensive and advanced charts provide a host of features to support your chart analysis, including multiple chart types, over 115 technical indicators and drawing tools, a pattern recognition feature and our chart forum community.

Execution control

Enter and exit trades in a flash with our cutting-edge technology. There are multiple order types available, so you can control exactly when and how your trades are executed. For example, our one-click trading feature allows you to place a trade almost instantly, while for enhanced order management you can set boundaries to control any potential slippage in the market.

Order execution options

Risk management

We've developed an extensive range of risk-management features to help you manage trading risk effectively, helping to secure potential profits and minimise losses. If you want 100% certainty that a trade will close at an exact price if it moves against you, we offer guaranteed stop-loss orders (GSLOs) for a premium. The premium is refunded in full if the GSLO is not triggered.
