FXChoice Trading Tools

FXChoice constantly strive to be a pacesetter in the forex industry, so they are constantly looking to diversify the trading experience of clients by providing them with a broad range of services and products. There are many useful third-party trading tools provided by the broker, such as the MQL5 Signals, Myfxbook AutoTrade Service, FXChoice VPS, and Live Economic Calendar.

FXChoice MQL5 Trading Signals
FXChoice MQL5 Trading Signals

MQL5 Trading Signals

Forex traders no longer have to spend year after year honing their skills and devising strategies. The MQL5 signal service allows users to delegate trades to more experienced traders. This way a beginner can copy forex signals from an experienced trader right from the outset. The service is also an option for those clients who are too buys and don’t have the time to trade, but still want to dip into the markets.

Just keep in mind that there can be no guarantee on just how well these trading signals will perform and historical results are not an inclination of future performance. All trading online carries a significant element of risk that you should be well aware of.

  • Powerful Signal Service built right into your FXChoice MT4 platform
  • No third-party software to install
  • Designed for those who are new to Forex trading as there is no trading experience required
  • Signals work well alongside other EAs or your own manual trading strategy
  • Forex Signals are copied to your MT4 platform automatically
  • Growing base of Forex Signal Providers
FXChoice Myfxbook AutoTrade
FXChoice Myfxbook AutoTrade

Myfxbook AutoTrade

AutoTrade is an automated mirror-trading service operated by the trading community portal Myfxbook. The service enables you to subscribe to a selection of traders whose trades are automatically copied to your account. This way you can mimic other traders’ strategies. Again, there are no guarantee on results.

  • No joining fees
  • No additional software needed
  • All trade mirroring is completely automated
  • Filter systems according to your preferences

Pre-Installed Expert Advisors (EAs)

Expert Advisors (EAs) are programs which run on the MetaTrader platform and trade automatically on behalf of the user. As an experienced Forex company, FXChoice have accumulated a mountain of data over the years on the EAs used by their clients. For your convenience, they have picked a handful of the most popular and preinstalled them on the MT4 platform.

Virtual Private Server (VPS)

A VPS is a virtual computer stored in a safe location where a stable internet connection is almost always guaranteed. This can be crucial for automated trading where you need your platform up and running around the clock. The basic home internet connection can be unstable at times and may even be liable to sporadic disconnections throughout the day, which can be frustrating and also disrupt your trading. Using an FXChoice VPS can help to improve your connectivity to trading servers, which may help to eliminate possible trading losses that are caused by poor internet connections.

To get a Free VPS with the broker, all you need to do is ensure your balance is USD 3000 or higher and trade at least five lots during each billing cycle. If you keep this up, you would pay for the first month only. Note that you can only claim one free forex VPS.

FXChoice Trading Instruments

FXChoice have a wide range of products which means that the broker can cater to a broad spectrum of traders. Whatever you are interested in trading, there is something for everyone. This includes CFDs on Forex, Stocks, Indices, Commodities and Cryptocurrencies.

  • Forex: 36 FX currency pairs including major, minor and exotic crosses
  • Cryptocurrency: Trade popular Cryptos including Bitcoin and Ethereum
  • Indices: Spread risk with Indices CFDs such as the DE30Index, US30Index, US500Index, UK100Index and more
  • Commodities: Trade commodities like gold, silver and oil
  • Stocks: Trade shares of your favourite companies such as Amazon, Apple and Google

CFDs

Contracts for difference (or CFDs) are a type of derivative product that allows buyers and sellers to exchange the difference between the present price of an underlying asset and the price when the contract is closed.

CFD trading gives participants direct market exposure without having to take ownership of the underlying asset. CFD traders have the ability to profit from both long and short positions. To do so, CFDs are bought or sold outright. This functionality gives traders the ability to capitalise on either rising or falling price action.

If the price of an asset rises and the contract is closed, the seller of the CFD, or counterparty, must pay the difference between the current price and the price when the contract was made. However, if the price falls, then the buyer pays the price difference to the seller.

Forex Trading

The Forex market is immense, seeing USD 4 trillion passes through it every day, making it the world’s largest market. This incredible volume brings liquidity and flexibility to the trader’s strategy.

Crypto Trading

Crypto is a modern form of decentralised digital currency meaning they are independent of government interference. FXChoice offer the following crypto CFDs: BTC, LTC and ETH. Instead of buying crypto, you can make a profit or loss by speculating their value against the USD.

Indices Trading

Index CFDs can be seen as way for a trader to mitigate risk, because indices spread the risk across the market, rather than having all of your eggs in one basket (company). It can also be less time consuming to trade indices, as traders do not need to spend so long meticulously analysing each stock, unless you want to of course!

Share CFDs

Share CFDs are instruments whose underlying assets consist of common stock market shares. FXChoice offers a number of potential benefits over directly investing in the stock market. Traders can buy or sell Share CFDs with low margin levels and trading costs. Use only a fraction of the capital to buy or sell without having to own the whole share.

FXChoice Trading Accounts

FXChoice offers two main account types — the classic and pro account — as well as a multi-account management account for asset managers. The account type that is right for you could depend on your trading strategy. For instance, if you are using a forex scalping strategy, you may need the pro account because of its lower spreads. On the other hand, if you are planning on forex swing trading and holding positions for the long term, you may prefer the classic account that includes the commission in the spread.
