Our pricing technology is engineered to find the best available prices on both OTC (over-the-counter) and DMA. This means that DMA prices are not necessarily better than OTC, but direct access to the markets can give you greater visibility and flexibility as a trader.
There are many added complexities to the trading environment and there can be an increased risk. As we take a parallel position in the underlying market, DMA traders need to be aware that once an order has been executed we are unable to change or reverse the position.
It is also important to note that while you are trading based on underlying market prices and depth, what you actually receive on placing a trade is a CFD from us. So while you are trading at market prices, you do not gain any ownership rights over the currencies which form the subject of your CFD.
Most clients will need to have a minimum £1000 cash balance on their account to activate DMA. It can be traded using our iOS and Android apps (to request DMA access on your app please give us a call) as well as on L2 Dealer, our dedicated DMA platform.
