    City Index Launches Cutting-Edge MetaTrader 4 Platform for FX Clients

    London, 30 June 2013, UK: City Index, a leading global provider of retail trading services including Spread Betting, Contracts for Difference (CFDs) and margined Foreign Exchange (FX), announced today the launch of the world renowned MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform for its FX clients.

    Incorporating additional features and trading tools, City Index’s bespoke MT4 offering will provide clients with a more extensive trading package than what is currently offered by the orthodox trading platform. The user-friendly and highly innovative programme is free to download for all City Index MT4 FX clients, allowing FX traders to take advantage of the traditional out-of-the-box features such as Expert Advisors (EAs), one-click dealing and custom indicators.

    The enhanced City Index MT4 package also incorporates customisable leverage per forex pair, enabling clients to pick and choose from a leverage scale of 20:1 to 200:1. City Index MT4 traders can also take advantage of Price Tolerance, a new feature that enables clients to control the amount of slippage they are willing to accept when trading. Additionally, MT4 clients can also log in and use the full range of desktop, mobile and tablet trading platforms on offer by City Index, meaning that they can also trade with the professional downloadable Advantage Trader platform as well as on the move via their iPhone, Android mobile or tablet, Blackberry, iPad and more. These are just three of the new MT4 features and trading tools available, taking FX dealing to new levels of innovation and professionalism.

    Paul Cassidy, Global Head of Marketing at City Index, said: “At City Index we are dedicated to providing our FX clients with the very best retail trading services. FX trading is a major growth area and we have taken one of the most popular FX trading platforms, MT4, with its multitude of exciting customisable features and trading tools, and developed a number of enhancements to provide customers with a powerful platform that remains easy to use.”

    “City Index is very proud to be a leader in technological innovation, having been one of the first in the industry to bring out a live dealing app for mobile back in 2009, and we are committed to giving our FX clients the best trading tools and services in the market. The launch of our bespoke MT4 platform is a major offering in a long line of innovations and developments and we will continue to deploy significant resources to ensure we remain at the forefront of the global FX market.”

Ensure you fully understand the risks involved and seek independent advice if necessary. Please note that lower deposit rates could allow you to increase your risk.
