easyMarkets launches shares trading as FX industry goes multi-asset
Shares offerings are all the rage now as FX brokers go multi-asset to address an increasingly demanding group of traders.
Volatility in the stock market is shaming the currency world and the FX industry needs to cater to its clients’ needs. Enter easyMarkets, with its new expanded list of products on MT4 that includes U.S. and European listed shares.
Bringing some of the World’s most active and popular shares to the robust trading platform, the expanded offering provides more strategic choices and more news as both stock markets and public companies share a lot of data regarding earnings, costs, and even news regarding services and products.
The financial media closely follow these companies in regard to executive personnel changes, product launches, mergers, and acquisitions, giving traders an unprecedented level of data access.
Forex traders, especially the experienced ones, continue to rely on MetaTrader 4 for their activities and easyMarkets won’t let them down.
The company ensures access to negative balance protection, tight fixed spread, price transparency, and multiple markets including shares, all available via MT4, which boasts one-click trading, EA permission, pre-loaded indicators, and analysis tools.
Although traditionally shares are bought and held as investments due to their steady and relatively predictable growth, adding shares to a trading portfolio can help balance or counteract more volatile instruments.
Recently, easyMarkets also launched its Bitcoin base currency account, allowing traders to deposit, trade, and withdraw in Bitcoin – but still have access to multiple markets, without the need to exchange their Bitcoin funds to FIAT currencies. This lowers the chance of funds lost due to exchange fees and fluctuations in prices of both cryptos and FIAT currencies.
The FX broker was founded in 2001 and is regulated in the European Union and Australia, among others, with client funds being held in segregated accounts.
Shares offerings are all the rage now as FX brokers go multi-asset to address an increasingly demanding group of traders. Unlike investors, who hold their assets for a long time in search of higher prices and even dividends, traders search for volatility.
It doesn’t matter if the price of the instrument goes up or down. Instead, what matters is volatility, but also tight spreads, and solid execution. Although shares are still not as liquid as most forex pairs, they offer the volatility traders search for.
Besides the trading opportunities offered by higher volatility, expanded offerings that include shares trading provide users with new ways to hedge their market exposure and balance their portfolios.
