Fullerton Markets launches stock CFDs as multi asset is the way to go

Rick Steves

With the introduction of CFD, clients can reap the benefits of trading securities without actually owning them. This gives them all the advantages of ownership without any of the legal and tax responsibilities.

Multi-asset online brokerage Fullerton Markets has launched Stock CFDs, a new product giving its clients the potential to earn leveraged profits on both rising and falling stock prices.

As the broker rolls out stock CFDs (contract for differences) – a derivative instrument that allows clients to trade based on the performance of underlying stocks – the firm announced the addition of 63 of such instruments as the year begins.

World has gone multi asset

The world has gone multi asset and FX trading alone won’t cover the needs of most investors and traders looking to gain exposure to the performance of financial instruments globally. Stock CFDs allow traders to speculate in stocks by leveraging much more money than they have.

Mario Singh, Chief Executive Officer of Fullerton Markets, said: “One of our goals at Fullerton Markets is to make it easier for our clients to trade multi-assets in one single platform.

“Now, clients can trade Stocks, Forex, Cryptocurrencies, Commodities, and Indexes with us online. In this period of economic uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to protect your portfolio from adverse market cycles. With a wide range of products and a team of experts available to help you make the most of your portfolio, we can help traders achieve better returns, reduce volatility, and hedge risk.”

Some key differences between stock CFDs and traditional stock trading include the former allowing traders to open both long and short positions to take advantage of movements in the share price, thus creating more opportunities for more returns, and these products provide access to leverage in order to multiply exposure, both in the form of risk and profit/loss.

MetaTrader 5 available on MetaTrader 5

Fullerton Markets has recently launched its own MetaTrader 5 (MT5) trading platform, accessible via the Fullerton Suite.

Offered alongside its MT4 trading platform, Fullerton Markets’ MT5 features 21 timeframes (up from nine on MT4), six pending order types, a built-in economic calendar, real-time Depth of Market data, the option to transfer funds between accounts, and an in-app shortcut to Fullerton Suite.

With the MT5 platform, traders will have full access to features and tools that allow for comprehensive charting, convenient fundamental and technical analysis, and better control of their trading activity, among others.

While many traders might still be attached to the MT4 platform, its successor has faster processing times and a wider range of tools and indicators. And as brokers keep up with demand from retail investors who are increasingly motivated to trade stocks, MetaTrader 5 comes as more suitable for equities and other asset classes.
