Vantage has launched swap-free gold XAUUSD trades for all clients, the international multi-asset broker announced. The limited offer will be available until the end of July, with gold XAUUSD trades will not be charged overnight fees.

The broker intends to benefit gold XAUUSD traders pursuing both long- and short-term trading strategies, amid the current market volatility. Swap-free trades are not a new feature but are typically limited to holders of swap-free accounts.

For gold traders seeking low-cost trading options

Swap-free gold trading is open to all XAUUSD traders, across all trading accounts, regardless of trade size until 31 July 2022. It is also open to clients trading on the Vantage App.

Marc Despallieres. the Chief Strategy & Trading Officer at Vantage, said: “Our clients are always at the heart of our business decisions, and this new product enhancement is designed to benefit gold traders seeking low-cost trading options.”

“As the greenback continues to strengthen, we want to support traders who remain bullish on gold or seek short term trading opportunities amid the volatility. Swap-free gold trading complements Vantage’s existing offering of low spread, high liquidity, and fast execution trading, and we are confident that our traders will be able to benefit from this latest update.”

Vantage is an international multi-asset brokerage offering a wide range of CFD products, including Forex, Commodities, Indices, and Shares. The firm has over 1,000 employees across more than 30 global offices.

Vantage added MetaTrader 5 to platform offering

The FCA-licensed broker has recently expanded its range of trading platforms to include the world-renowned MetaTrader 5 (MT5), developed by MetaQuotes.

MetaTrader 5 provides access to multiple trading markets, in-depth price analysis, better hedging options, copy trading, live market news, multiple economic calendars, over 80 technical indicators, and a comprehensive range of market order types.

With MT5, traders can choose to develop or purchase their own custom EAs in the advanced MQL5 programming language, making its implementation available to both novice and experienced traders alike.
