Apple recently removed MT4 and MT5 from its App Store. This means that if you are a new user, you won’t be able to download the app onto your Apple device. If you already have the app installed on your Apple mobile or tablet, or have MetaTrader on your Android device, you will not be affected.

This maximum position size is shown in your trading platform. In MT5 this is defined as 'Volume Limit' in the symbol specification or in the fxTrade mobile platform it is noted as ‘Maximum Client Exposure’ in the Instrument Information section of the platform.

Frequently asked questions

add

What is the difference between trading physical shares and share CFDs?

Put simply, share CFDs allow you to trade with leverage, whereas the trading of physical shares requires payment of the full cost of those shares. By trading share CFDs, you are speculating on the price of the underlying asset, you are not taking ownership of it. The leverage you get with share CFDs will amplify both profits and losses. With physical shares you can only lose the amount you spent to acquire them. This is why buying physical shares is more of a long-term strategy, where you are looking to cash in years down the line, not in a week or two, as would be typical of trading share CFDs.

How can I start trading share CFDs?

If you’re just starting out as a trader in your spare time, it pays to study and practice trading share CFDs on a demo account before jumping in feet first. As with any asset, there are many ways to trade share CFDs. Some will opt to trade over a few minutes while others prefer to hold positions for a number of weeks. A lot depends on how much time you want to invest in trading and analysing your charts.
