IC Markets (International Capital Markets) was founded in 2007 and is a ECN and CFD broker domiciled in Sydney, Australia. IC Markets is regulated by ASIC.
IC Markets offers two of the best trading global Forex platforms available on the market: cTrader and Metatrade 4 (MT4). Metatrader 5 (MT5) has recently been introduced. IC Markets also offers AutoTrade to our clients, a service owned and operated by Myfxbook which allows traders to copy the trades of any system they select directly into their IC Markets MetaTrader 4 account without any fees, and without the need to install any complex software.
The IC Markets Multi Account Manager (MAM) enables traders to combine flexible allocation methods with real time reporting of performance and commissions through a user-friendly interface and connects all settings directly with the IC Markets MetaTrader 4 server. This software is perfect for traders or money managers using Expert Advisors (EAs) and boosts the functionality of the MetaTrader 4 platform by allowing multiple accounts to be managed from one simple interface.
Traders can also take advantage of the NinjaTrader platform, and award winning platform which offers traders advanced charting, market analytics, automated strategy development, back testing and optimization, and trade simulation.
The cTrader gives the broker's clients access to 60 currency pairs plus spot gold and silver. Active traders can utilize streaming prices from multiple global banks, and the ECN platform is perfect for scalpers and day traders. Indices in the form of CFDs are available from around the world including the Australian S&P 200 Index, UK FTSE 100 Index, US E-mini S&P 500 and US DJIA Index.
IC Markets offers several commodities including Brent crude and WTI oil CFDs and Natural Gas as a futures CFD contract on a margin rate of 100:1. Metals including Spot Gold or Silver can be traded as either a CFD on 100:1 leverage or against the US Dollar or Euro as a currency pair on 500:1 leverage.
Accounts through Meta4 and true ECN accounts can be opened with a minimum deposit of $200 or currency equivalent. cTrader accounts require a minimum deposit of USD $1,000.
IC Markets was the first Australian broker to offer cTrader, giving the brokerage a definite advantage over other brokers from Down Under.
