Get access to share CFDs at significantly improved prices, with minimal disruption even if major stock exchanges go down.
In addition to using traditional exchanges, we source prices for leading UK and European equities from two of Europe's leading exchanges: Chi-X and BATS. Known as multilateral trading facilities (MTFs), these function as alternatives to the primary stock exchanges.
As well as resulting in tighter spreads, this technology enables us to continue offering prices even when any individual exchange – for example the LSE or Euronext – halts trading.
In fact, MTFs often provide better prices than the primary exchanges and can account for up to 40% of a share’s overall liquidity.
How does it work?
Our technology works behind the scenes to find the best price available (regardless of whether it’s on an MTF or on a standard exchange) and displays it on your deal ticket in our trading platform. You will only notice one difference to your trading experience: even better prices on share CFDs.
How is DMA trading affected?
If you are trading share CFDs using our direct market access (DMA) trading platform, there are additional benefits provided by multi-venue technology – including a greater chance of your orders being filled at the selected level.
CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
