GFT Markets MT4 platform now includes CFDs. Extending a service that has been available to forex traders since 2011, GFT customers can now apply automated trading strategies to a range of CFD instruments including major indices and gold.

Martin Slaney, Director of Product Development at GFT Markets, commented:
“The key benefit of MT4 is that clients can develop or select from a predefined list of automated trading strategies. This has so far been limited to currency pairs, but feedback has shown universal demand for it to be extended to other asset classes too.”

GFT Markets will now offer MT4 customers the ability to trade 16 leading global indices – including the UK100, US30 and DE30 – plus gold, all using MT4. When surveyed, 95% of existing MT4 clients wanted the service expanded to cover other instruments, with 84% specifically asking to see indices being made available.

Martin Slaney, added: “GFT Markets is always keen to work with our customers to find out what they want and in turn, ensure that they are at the heart of our development strategy. This latest evolution with MT4 underlines this commitment to our customers.”

For traders who are new to automated trading, the GFT Markets MT4 platform offers access to over a thousand Expert Advisors or ‘EAs’, custom indicators, scripts and libraries of automated trading strategies, all of which can be applied to CFD instruments.
