SWITCH TO A BROKER WITH INTEGRITY

We started this business 20 years ago. We saw a market where brokers and banks could be taking advantage of you and your investments – and knew we could build something better.

THE OANDA DIFFERENCE

OANDA is more than a trading system: it's a company that built itself around doing the right thing to protect you and protect your trades.

Liquidity

Liquidity

Our pricing starts with our liquidity pool. We have no "dark pools" or internal liquidity creating a price for you that someone else can benefit from. Our pricing is exclusively sourced from a global network of premier banks and that's all.

Pricing

Pricing

Other dealers may skew your individual pricing, or reject individual orders depending on whether they make money on your traders or not. We do not selectively pick orders. We honour all quotes without re-quotes or rejections. No one at OANDA has the ability to target your positions, hunt your stops or change your pricing.

Our Technology

Our Technology

We own the quality of our trading system, because we've built it. Other trading platforms frequently forward your trades to third parties, that may or may not accept your trades. When you trade with OANDA, you know when the markets are moving your orders are filled. No rejections, no re-quotes and no "last look".

Execution Firewalls

Execution Firewalls

Our system is fully-automated. It was built that way, from the ground up.

HOW WE HEDGE

Some brokers can only profit when you lose -- and when you find success, they ask you to leave. Not at OANDA. We manage our risk, so that we can partner with you.

Risk Management
