ThinkMarkets expands CFDs lineup to over 4000 ETFs and shares

abdelaziz Fathi

ThinkMarkets has expanded its service offering by incorporating 2500 new CFDs on shares and ETFs on its ThinkTrader platform.

Often promoted as cheaper and better than trading in future markets, CFDs on ETFs have become one of the popular investment vehicles for retail traders. The asset class typically tracks a stock market index and trades on an exchange so that it allows individuals to trade a basket of securities in a single transaction. It also creates the conditions for retail investors to trade the underlying asset with much better control of their exposure to risk margin.

In a press release, the Melbourne-based broker firm said that it has significantly increased its lineup of derivatives referencing liquid stocks traded across the NYSE and NASDAQ. Over 4000 listed stocks and ETFs are now available for ThinkMarkets’ clients to explore and trade.

“Our primary mission has always been to satisfy our clients and offer them a wide variety of choices when it comes to the assets they want to trade. Moreover, we’ve strived to stay ahead and maintain a best in class offering which is constantly updated with more instruments that clients can choose from,” the company said.

ThinkMarkets had a busy year

ThinkMarkets broadens its product line as clients’ desire to garner exposure to regulated markets has been increasing. The inclusion of new EFTs CFDs not only helps expand trading capabilities for its clientele but also attract more traders that are looking to diversify their trading options. The case for adding more assets has been growing in recent years with clients from certain regions keen to actively trade new instruments.

ThinkMarkets (formerly ThinkForex)‎ is a multi-licensed online forex brokerage firm, authorized and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Australian ‎Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

ThinkMarkets made headlines earlier this year when it raised $30 million in fresh capital, provided by Mars Growth, a Liquidity Group and MUFG joint venture fund. Its UK business also launched a new prime brokerage unit under the brand Liquidity.net.

We last reported on ThinkMarkets in March after the company launched its trading services in Japan as its global expansion plans continue to accelerate. The move came barely one year after ThinkMarkets acquired the Japanese FX firm, Japan Affiliate. This announcement coincided with the opening of ThinkMarkets’ Tokyo office.
