MetaTrader 4

ETX Capital was among one of the first of the UK’s CFD trading firms to offer MetaQuotes’ popular MT4 trading platform to traders not just in England, but worldwide. With the acquisition of Alpari’s client base, the MT4 platform uses the same servers as those used by Alpari.

MetaTrader 4 offers a comprehensive charting solution for all users, including multiple chart display, built-in indicators, 3rd party custom indicators, trading from charts and more. Traders can use the expertise of EAs to automatically execute trading decisions based on signals received. They can also build their own library of indicators or download from 1000's of third party providers.

ETX MetaTrader 4 Autotrader Platform

ETX Capital offers its clients the use of its Autotrader platform. Automated Expert Advisors allow traders to take positions automatically, based on pre-set trading parameters. ETX provides the hosted platform, whilst the MT4 traders provide their own EA’s. Traders can program Expert Advisors to follow a very specific set of instructions, allowing trades to be automatically opened and closed without the trader needing to be present.

ETX MT4 Autotrader enables traders to open multiple charts at the same time providing traders with real-time data that enables them to live stream the latest market fluctuations and to customize watch-lists with drag and drop capability allowing them to add key markets to their watch-lists with ease. The comprehensive charting package includes more than 50 built in indicators, specific custom indicators and more.

The platform also offers traders the use of micro-lots – a tenth of the size of mini-lots which give them the opportunity to trade in smaller increments and help to limit overall exposure and instances of over-leveraging. Leverage of up to 400:1 is available on selected Forex products, enabling traders to increase the potential return on trades at the price of increasing their risk.

Trades are placed quickly and effectively with a one click trading tool and ETX MT4 gives MT4 traders the chance to use hedges in any available market in an attempt to offset a current position.

The key advantage of the ETX MT4 platform is that it enables traders to program their trading to take place even when they are away from the platform. And in addition to desktop trading, traders can also access ETX MT4 from their iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Mobile devices.

Binary Options Platform

ETX Capital’s newest platform, ETX Binary, opens up the world of binary trading to ETX clients, offering a wide range of Forex Pairs, Commodities, Financial Indices and Stocks in a binary option format.

ETX Binary offers traders a wide range of expiry times for their trades. Traders who want fast-paced trading and only want to risk only their initial investment and not a penny or who want to bet on just up and down (call and put) not specific prices can choose the ETX Binary platform where 60 second trades are possible.
