HYCM Trading Platforms and Features

HYCM offers a large number of trading assets including Forex and CFDs, metals such as gold and silver, energy products such as U.S. oil and natural gas, as well as the all-important commodities such as cotton and sugar, indices, a selection of blue-chip stocks and more. And unlike most Forex only providers, HYCM enables their clients to trade multiple capital markets in the single integrated account.

HYCM provides access to cutting-edge trading tools used by the world’s largest banks and professional traders, including trading ideas, technical patterns and insights, and market research from Trading Central, an award winning technical analysis research provider founded in 1999 with offices in Paris, London, New York and Hong Kong.

There are three different trading platforms at HTCM. The MetaTrader4 offers live market news, advanced charting, expert advisors and technical analysis tools such as Trading Central.

The Prime Trader platform is HYCM’s brand new, multi-asset, flagship platform with integrated pricing, charts and trade screens, complete online account management and advanced charting.

A mobile trading platform is also available with complete trading capabilities, real-time news, charts and other advanced features.

Education

The education section of the HYCM website offers not only standard videos but also textual lessons on topics geared towards both beginners and advanced traders. Subject include Introduction to the Capital Markets, Tips for Traders, Managing Risk, Trading Tools and more.

Education Center

Technical and fundamental analysis is gone into in much detail and is highly informative. The section on the history and psychology of the markets is most interesting.

In addition to the above, HYCM offers a daily outlook and updates as well as weekly market commentary on what is happening in the most traded commodities such as oil, gold and silver, indices, and the major currencies.

I found the FAQ section a big sparse and the questions and answers did not provide additional information beyond what can be found in other sections of the site.

Bonuses/Promotions

HYCM offers a 10% bonus up to $5000 for its HYCM Ltd clients. All other clients will not be able to access the company’s bonuses, as per European regulations.

Deposits/Withdrawals

Deposits are accepted via credit cards, wire transfers, Skrill, PayPal and WebMoney. Withdrawals can be requested by filling out an online form.

Customer Support

Traders can reach customer support 24/5 via email, chat and telephones to London.

Conclusion

HYCM’s new website is easy to navigate and all the information is accessible without any difficulty. HYCM has a long history behind it and the fact that it is regulated puts it one step ahead of many other Forex brokers in the industry.

i was attracted by a wide range of trading instruments, it seems to me such a diverse choice as there is simply nowhere. tested the terminal day and night and made sure that the execution of transactions are excellent at any time. decided to stay here to trade only, but i also wanted to open in another company so i chose hycm
