You're at the heart of all we do
Our goal is to provide you with the ultimate trading experience. We're passionate about online trading, constantly innovating and looking to improve the way our clients invest in financial markets.

We offer attractive spreads right across our product range, from 0.7 points on EUR/USD, 1 point on key indices like the US NDAQ100 and UK100 Germany 30, and 0.3 points on Gold. Our margin rates start from 2.90% for forex, 4.50% for indices, 2.63% for commodities and 15% for shares.
More trading opportunities
With over 10,000 CFD markets to trade across forex, indices, commodities, shares, ETFs and treasuries, we give you the chance to develop a diverse portfolio, increasing your potential trading opportunities.
Our intuitive platform
Next Generation is our unique, pioneering online trading platform. It's already won multiple awards* but we're not stopping there – we consistently make improvements and add new functionality, products and tools to the platform to enhance your trading experience.
Dynamic charting capability
Our award-winning charts* provide a host of features to support your chart analysis, including multiple chart types, over 80 technical indicators and drawing tools, a pattern recognition feature and our chart forum community.
Enter and exit trades in a flash with our cutting-edge technology. There are multiple order types available, so you can control exactly when and how your trades are executed. For example, our one-click trading feature allows you to place a trade almost instantly, while for enhanced order management you can set boundaries to control any potential slippage in the market.
We've developed an extensive range of risk management features to help you manage trading risk effectively, helping to secure potential profits and minimise losses. If you want 100% certainty that a CFD trade will close at an exact price if it moves against you, we offer guaranteed stop-loss orders (GSLOs) for a premium. The premium is refunded in full if the GSLO is not triggered.
Dedicated support, 24 hours a day
Get access to support around the clock whenever the markets are open, from our dedicated Client Management team. If you happen to experience any technical, trading or account difficulties, you can quickly and easily get in touch with a member of our knowledgeable team.
Sharpen your skills
No matter your level of trading experience, our dedicated range of education resources can help you learn more, while our step-by-step guides will help you make the most of our advanced trading platform.
Security of funds
We comply with IIROC and CIPF rules and regulations to ensure all client funds are protected. As such, we distinguish your money from our own and hold it in separate bank accounts. CIPF ensures, within defined limits, that a client's money is protected if they are an eligible client of an investment dealer that is a member of one of CIPF's sponsoring organizations.
Licensed and regulated
As an IIROC regulated broker we adhere to strict regulatory requirements. This dictates the way we conduct our business and includes a commitment to treating customers fairly, so you always know exactly where you stand.
Over 27 years' experience
Since launching in 1989, we have become one of the world's leading CFD providers. Among the pioneers of the industry and with more than 27 years' experience, you can be confident that when you're trading with us, you're trading with experts.
In the last two years alone we've won over 50 awards, recognising the quality of our service and dedication to delivering innovation and technology to our clients, through our Next Generation web-based trading platform and native mobile apps.
