“City Index is committed to helping traders at all levels be more informed in understanding the markets and their behaviour.”

FCA-regulated FX and CFD broker City Index has gone live with the previously announced rebranded website and introduced its new innovative Performance Analytics feature, PlayMaker, which allows clients to monitor their trading plans in real time.

One of the longest standing providers in the United Kingdom, City Index is boasting the new brand and features to emphasise its alignment with clients, providing them with more choice, exclusive insight and best value.

Also available to UK traders from today is City Index’s latest innovation, PlayMaker, that allows clients to assess their trading behaviours and compare them to the broader market in real time.

Playmaker gives clients the ability to minimise downside risks with good money management rules; set reminders to protect themselves from emotional trades; and track metrics on open trades in real-time in order to stay disciplined.

City Index customers benefit from StoneX’s product offering

Giles Watts, City Index Regional Business Director, UK, commented: “Today’s financial markets and global events bring both risk and opportunity for investors. City Index is committed to helping traders at all levels be more informed in understanding the markets and their behaviour. Both pieces of news today show our dedication to helping our clients achieve their goals.”

StoneX Group’s diversified product offering serves commercial, institutional, payments and retail clients. City Index customers benefit directly from the parent company which ensures them a reliable trading experience.
