LeapRate Exclusive… LeapRate has learned that ASIC regulated retail forex broker Direct FX has redone its website, which just went live earlier this week.
In conjunction with the new look, Direct FX has partnered with FINRA-regulated broker DriveWealth to launch exchange-listed US Equities and Futures trading on MetaTrader 4 to its network of global partners and direct clients.
The platform will utilize oneZero technology to offer US listed Equities through DriveWealth, and Futures, FX, CFDs and Binary Options trading through Direct FX.
We had reported last fall that Direct FX also added binary options on MT4.
Joe O’Mara, CEO of Direct FX, told LeapRate:
Our clients really appreciate having access to true exchange-traded Equities and Futures on the world’s most trusted exchanges such as the NYSE, NASDAQ and CME. Through our partnership with DriveWealth, our global client base has invested in some of the world’s most successful companies such as US based companies, like Apple and Coca-Cola, as well as international companies like Alibaba and Sony. Clients looking for diversification through Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) have access to the most popular and traded ETFs such as PowerShares QQQ, SPDR S&P 500 and Financial Select Sector SPDR.
Direct FX has built a tremendous reputation as a trusted name in the Forex and CFD business for more than 10 years. As our clients become more sophisticated, they are diversifying into other non-Forex products such as Equities and Futures as part of a global investment portfolio. Integrating these products into MT4 provides traders from around the globe access to these diverse investment products on a trusted, familiar platform. Adding Equities and Futures to the popular MT4 platform will allow users to incorporate their existing custom indicators, alerts and even Exert Advisors (EAs) to automate trading strategies for individual stocks, ETFs and Futures!
According to Robert Cortright, founder and CEO of DriveWealth:
DriveWealth’s mission is to enable global access to US equities. We are thrilled to work with Direct FX and oneZero to offer international traders access to equities for the first time on MetaTrader 4.
Residents of the United States cannot currently open accounts with Direct FX. Any promotional material, offers or advertisements from Direct FX are not intended for and do not apply to United States residents.
