MetaTrader 5 (MT5) multi-asset trading platform announced it has expanded its liquidity providers pool with EU forex broker Just2Trade Online. The broker has released an integration solution based on the MT5 Gateway to the platform.
As a result, the platform users gain direct access via the MT5 to the world’s leading exchanges, including more than 9,000 trading instruments – US stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), major global stock and currency futures markets on all key European and Asian exchanges.
“Just2Trade liquidity expands the abilities of the companies providing services to their clients via MetaTrader 5. We believe, this is the most efficient way to solve the issue of connecting to the necessary markets,” said Evgeny Zhilin, Just2Trade head of operations. “Considering the continuous migration of brokers to MetaTrader 5 all over the world, we are awaiting a strong demand from institutional clients,“ he added.
The MT5 has gateway connectivity to eight other liquidity providers – LMax Exchange, FXCM Pro, Currenex, FastMatch, Hotspot FX, Integral, Swissquote, and Alpari.
Just2Trade Online is regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). It owns the forex websites www.finam.eu and www.finam.com.cy. Just2Trade was acquired in 2015 by WhoTrades – the Cysec-regulated international brand of Russian investment services group Finam and a registered Introducing Broker (IB) with the US National Futures Association (NFA).
MT5 is the successor of MetaTrader 4 (MT4), which is the worlds’ most widely-used forex trading platform. Recently, MT5 has been gaining momentum as the number of brokers that adopt the platform has been growing weekly. Interest in the platform increased significantly after it was added a hedging capability in late March 2016. In addition, the platform developer has expressed intentions to stop issuing updates to the MT4 as it seeks to focus entirely on the MT5, which additionally contributed to the growing popularity of the MT5.
The platform offers access to forex, contracts for difference (CFDs), options, futures, and equities trading instruments. It is available for desktop and mobile devices, and via the web.
