Cyprus based Retail FX and CFDs broker SquaredFinancial has announced the launch of MetaTrader 5 (MT5) with futures and shares support.

The company said that the platform has become available to all the company’s traders through desktop and mobile applications.

SquaredFinancial Chief Executive Officer, Husam Al Kurdi, explains why the company is now offering the upgraded platform:

“In many ways, MetaTrader 5 was ahead of its time. It took several years for it to reach the peak, partly due to the attachment many traders have to MetaTrader 4. But we are now seeing the benefits of MetaTrader 5, as investors need access to a genuine multimarket platform, with greatly enhanced compatibility and functionality. We offer a full range of high-quality investment instruments, acting as a global market gateway, so we see MetaTrader 5 as an important option for our clients.”

The launch of the MT5 platform at SquaredFinancial coincides with the introduction of futures and shares to the products available for traders. The new trading options include VIX, Gold, Brent and WTI as well as single stock shares from Louis Vuitton to Amazon.

“As with all our new products, we spend time making sure we have the best specification and investment opportunities for our clients. The current levels of market volatility, often linked to fast-moving news flows, require traders to be able to hedge risks and to diversify across a range of asset classes. Offering futures and shares, combined with the launch of MetaTrader 5, provides the options and flexibility our clients need to maximize their trading,” added Mr. Al Kurdi.

SquaredFinancial stated that it is constantly offering additional support to its clients, through the SquaredFinancial Academy, webinars and online resources, to help traders in generating the best results, when trading with the new products via the MetaTrader 5 platform.
