CFD broker trading platforms
Each online CFD broker will offer a range of free online trading platforms. You should ensure that they offer a trading platform that you are familiar with. If you have no previous experience using a trading platform, MetaTrader 4 is one of the most popular due to its user friendliness and advanced features. Some brokers provide their very own proprietary platforms such as eToro, Plus500 and AvaTrade. If you plan to trade on the go, then you should check that they offer web and mobile version of your desired trading platform.
Trading platforms can vary in features, some will offer advanced charting tools for detailed market analysis whilst others can incorporate news feeds and other features to assist with your trading. Depending on your individual trading requirements, make sure the platform offers all of the tools you need to trade with efficiency. It could be a good idea to open demo accounts on multiple platforms to compare them and see which you deem more suitable for your own needs.
