Tickmill launches new CFDs from Small Exchange
The launch opens the door to a swathe of products, including Cannabis, Cryptocurrency Equity Index, and 2YR US Treasury Yield.
Retail FX and CFD broker Tickmill has announced direct market access to CFD’s based on futures products from the Small Exchange.
The brokerage firm said it had to create its own pricing mechanism based directly on the underlying exchange to pull this off successfully as it aims to democratize futures. The new instruments are offered as CFDs and available on the MetaTrader 4 platform.
Futures turned into CFDs on MT4
Currently in IG Group’s possession, the Small Exchange is expected to be sold to leading digital asset exchange operator Crypto.com as the firm looks to enter the derivatives trading segment. Should the deal close, Travis McGhee and Donald Roberts will continue as the CEO of Nadex and Small Exchange respectively.
Duncan Anderson, Chief Executive Officer at Tickmill UK, said: “The Small Exchange itself is designed with the everyday investor in mind. With their recent sale to Crypto.com, we wanted to deepen our partnership with them to be able to take better advantage of their exciting new products coming out.”
“With the latest addition of the new instruments, our traders are able to explore the world of futures within the familiarity of a CFD and MT4 trading environment!”, Anderson added.
“This means no market data fees and the products are offered as non-expiring CFD contracts so that clients do not have to worry about rolling over their positions every month. Our brokerage team has worked tirelessly to enhance the trading conditions even further by ensuring that we can offer exceptionally competitive leverage to our traders”.
Tickmill is regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), the Financial Services Authority of Seychelles (FSA), the Labuan Financial Services Authority, and South Africa’s Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA).
