TD Waterhouse, UK execution only broker which services more than 200,000 customers has enhanced its contracts for difference service by launching TD Derivatives Trading for CFD trades, which will also include Forex and Futures in partnership with Saxo Bank.
It is understood that the ‘TD Derivatives Trading’ account is serviced by giant retail online trading and investment provider Saxo Bank, which, we are told, merges all the diverse elements required by experienced traders. Customers can trade CFDs – with commission for CFD share trades starting from 0.15% (minimum £15) on all markets but not just that – we are told that private TD traders will now also be able to take advantage of one of the leading forex platforms, with access to more than 160 forex currency pairs. The account also includes Futures which allow clients to deal in over 450 instruments on live market prices from over 15 exchanges around the world.
The trading system is available either as a ‘Web Trader’ platform or as downloadable program ‘TD Derivatives Professional’, the last of which offers extra technical indicators and charting tools and can be configured to desktops so clients can take advantage of a faster and more flexible performance since this is not accessed via a web browser.
TD Derivatives Trading clients can take advantage of two, free highly customisable platforms that can be adapted to suit individual needs. The platforms include UK Level 2 prices and DMA trading on FTSE 100 share CFDs as well as an advanced charting package with streaming prices and news.
The TD Derivatives Web Trader platform is available online while TD Derivatives Professional, which offers additional technical indicators in its charting tools, is available as a downloadable platform that can be configured to desktops so customers can enjoy a faster and more flexible performance since this is not accessed through a web browser.
