ASX Shares (Now available through MT5)

Spreads from 0.0 pips, leverage up to 500:1, and Social Trading

FP Markets is known to be focused on tight spreads and fast execution. Founded 16 years ago, the FX broker offers interbank Forex spreads from 0.0 pips and leverage up to 500:1 on its Pro Account.

For years, such high leverage was available for retail customers as well but regulatory changes in recent times – including Australia’s ASIC leverage restrictions on CFD retail products – have changed the landscape.

In March, FP Markets launched its social trading service as community trading becomes part of the new paradigm. FP Markets Social Trading offers control whether the user is looking to trade as a Copier or offering trading strategies as a Provider.

Copy trading removes some of the complexities of trading forex and CFDs and allows customers a more accessible entry point to trading the global financial markets by following successful traders, or Providers.

These Providers are ranked by FP Markets based on their profitability over a given period of time and potential copiers have the ability to view their full trading history and past performance.

With social trading, users have no need to develop their own trading plan as they can just follow the performance of successful traders in real-time and mirror the behavior of professional traders with a proven track record.

While having no need to make any trading decisions, users still maintain control over their accounts. The service allows multiple copy trading options and risk management strategies, with automated trading.
