Trading Account FAQs

If you have any questions regarding trading accounts, then this section should provide the answers.

When should I open a brokerage account?

There is no time like the present to consider opening an online brokerage trading account with ATFX. The increases in volatility caused by global, macro-economic events can offer up brilliant trading opportunities for those in a position to take advantage.

On the flip side, you need to understand the risks associated with trading. During periods of market volatility, whilst opportunity increases, risk increases in parallel.

How much does it cost to open a trading account?

It’s free to open any ATFX account; however, the level of deposit required varies depending on which account you choose to open.

Which trading platform is best?

Metatrader 4 (MT4) is widely regarded as the most popular and arguably one of the best trading platforms for traders. MT4 is an intuitive platform, which you can fully customise to match your preferences, which will enhance your trading skills.

We also provide access to a range of trading widgets and tools, such as Autochartist, which helps you identify trading patterns on your charts, enabling more informed trading decisions. Our partnership with Trading Central provides you with technical analysis reports to help confirm your view of the markets.

What can I trade?

Once you've opened your trading account, you’ll have the ability to trade the following instruments*:

  • Indices

  • Forex pairs

  • Cryptocurrencies

  • Commodities

  • Shares

*Instrument availability may differ depending on account type.

Can I have two trading accounts?
