USGFX Experiences Increasing Demand for MT5

“We are delighted that USGFX, one of the early adopters of MT5 in Australia, is experiencing tangible business benefits from our partnership” – Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i

Sydney Australia

USGFX, one of the first Australian FX & CFD brokers to offer MT5, is reaping the benefits of adding MT5 to its choice of trading platforms by attracting new clients and increasing business from existing clients.

The award-winning brokerage launched its MT5 offering in August 2017 and deploys Gold-i’s MT5 Gateway for access to multi-asset liquidity providers and to enable clients to benefit from ultra-low latency and risk coverage with banks in real-time.

According to Shay Zakhaim, Chief Executive Officer, USGFX, “MT5’s architecture sets it apart from all other trading platforms in the market. It has become a platform of choice for many of our clients and has also attracted plenty of new traders to our brokerage. USGFX’s MT5 is available on any device, on any browser and we regularly receive extremely positive feedback, especially from traders who have migrated from MT4. They particularly like the additional timeframes and superior analytics available through the MT5 platform.”

A further advantage of MT5, according to Shay Zakhaim, is the integrated all-in-one multi-functionality. He cites MetaTrader Market – which gives USGFX’s clients access to a vast online store of robots and indicators – as an additional key benefit.

Shay Zakhaim continues, “Certain features and functionalities of MT5, such as the enhanced automated trading features, continue to attract interest, especially from traders who like to trade with EAs and those who like copy trading. It’s because of these kinds of features, in addition to the multi-asset capabilities of the platform, that we envisage demand for MT5 steadily growing and its popularity increasing.

“We are very proud to have been an early adopter of MT5 – our partnership with MetaQuotes and Gold-i has proved to be very prudent. We have worked with Gold-i for many years. They are an innovative company and their MT5 Gateway enhances the multi-asset features of MT5 and provides us with fast and reliable integration between retail and institutional trading systems.”

Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i adds, “We are delighted that USGFX, one of the early adopters of MT5 in Australia, is experiencing tangible business benefits from our partnership.”
