Online forex brokerage AMarkets has included a new function to the xStation trading platform, which enables users to place preopened pending orders, the broker said on Wednesday.
xStation users can now place, modify, or delete pending orders outside of the standard trading hours of the instruments in which they chose to trade. All rules regarding settlement and execution of pre-open orders are exactly the same as with pending orders placed during the trading session.
AMarkets offers trading in forex, metals, commodities, and contracts for difference (CFDs). The broker uses xStation and MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platforms. MT4 is an industry leader. xStation is a web-based multi-asset platform with an open API software. It supports Multiple Account management solutions (xMAM), social trading (xSocial) and binary options capabilities (xBinaries). The platform is also supported by forex brokers XTB, xDirect and Currency house.
AMarkets, incorporated in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, is a member of the Center for Regulation in OTC Financial Instruments and Technologies (CRFIN), a Russian self-regulatory organization, and the Financial Commission (FinaCom), a Hong Kong-based external dispute resolution (EDR) organization. It offers accounts under its UK-regulated partner ATC Brokers.
