“We also offer a leverage of up to 33:1 for some of the key ETF symbols, providing traders with more opportunities to grow their accounts. In the near future, we are planning to add even more symbols to meet this popular demand.”

VT Markets has announced the addition of 51 ETF (exchange-traded fund) symbols to its multi-asset trading options in order to allow users track the performance of technology, energy, and mining sectors via popular symbols such as BKCH, BLOK, GLD, XLF, and XOP.

The international FX and CFD broker’s newly added ETFs include a variety of trading instruments like stocks, bonds, and indices across multiple industries from different global exchanges.

For instance, the ETFs for the technology sector include iShares U.S. Technology ETF (IYW) and Vanguard Information Technology ETF (VGT). The bond ETFs give traders exposure to a wide selection of bonds diversified by type, issuer, maturity and region, including iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG) and Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND).

Christopher Nelson-Smith, Director of VT Markets, said: “We are truly excited to bring this new offer to our clients worldwide. Over the past months, we have seen an increasing demand for investment assets with relatively lower risks, lower cost and more exposure.

“We welcome all traders, regardless of where you are in your trading journey, to join us and experience ETF trading on our world-class trading platform. We also offer a leverage of up to 33:1 for some of the key ETF symbols, providing traders with more opportunities to grow their accounts. In the near future, we are planning to add even more symbols to meet this popular demand.”

VT Markets reached 1,000 instruments milestone last week

VT Markets has recently added a number of US, UK, and EU shares CFDs (contract for differences) to its multi asset trading offering, reaching the milestone number of 1,000 tradeable instruments available on the platform.

The multi-asset broker, which is regulated by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA), is determined to help traders diversify their portfolios and make trading easier and more accessible.

For that reason, VT Markets recently added MetaTrader 5 to its roster of available trading platforms next to MetaTrader 4 and WebTrader. The MT5 offering followed the launch of the broker’s new branding and client portal as the firm decided to go multi asset. MetaTrader 5 helps broaden the range of products and solutions and VT Markets aimed to address the growing client demand for share CFDs.

Now, VT Markets offers over 500 leveraged US shares CFDs (including Amazon, Apple, Google, Visa), UK shares CFDs (including Barclays, Vodafone Group, Lloyds Bank, and Unilever), and EU shares CFDs (including ING Groep N.V., SAP, and L’Oreal).

VT Markets takes pricing and liquidity from 7 liquidity providers which allows the broker to offer the best possible pricing in such a competitive market. Sourcing liquidity from seven LPs has dramatically improved pricing, execution, spreads, and trading conditions for its traders.
