3 ways to get started and become a successful trader

We believe trading for people at all levels should be fast and intuitive.

Choose your Trade Symbol

Choose one of the many symbols available to trade. There are multiple Symbols from Forex, Precious Metals, and a large number of Indices, Shares, and Commodity CFDs grouped by type. This makes it very easy to select your Trade Symbol to take profits from the global financial markets.

Enter your Trade Size

Enter the amount you wish to trade of the symbol you have chosen. Some symbols have a specific minimum trade size, others can be traded from one microlot (0.01). The maximum permitted trade size depends on your balance. A system called leverage helps you trade larger sizes with a lower balance. A higher leverage will help you trade either a larger size or different symbols simultaneously.

Sell or Buy

Simply click on ‘Sell by Market’ or ‘Buy by Market’ to complete your trade. Your trade immediately begins to move with the market. Trading on a live account is the best way to learn how to be a good trader. You will learn how to plan your entry and exit to maximise your profits, control your balance, actively select which Symbols to trade for best profit, and you will master balancing your risk to reward and compound your profits. Accomplishing this will give you both financial freedom and the ability to work almost any time you want, trading on the world’s global markets!
