We recommend DMA only for advanced traders. It’s suitable for those looking to trade market depth with algorithms and traders looking to participate in the pre-market and post-market auctions.
Our only charges are a small commission – the same as an OTC trade.
Depending on the exchange you wish to view or trade on, you may be liable to pay data fees.
Under the terms of our customer agreement, we will also pass on to you any transaction costs, such as stock borrowing fees, which we incur as a result of your transaction.
Our DMA service allows you to trade CFDs on underlying market prices and depth. DMA prices are not necessarily better than OTC, as our pricing technology is engineered to find the best available prices for both. However, direct access to the markets can give you greater visibility and flexibility as a trader.
There are many added complexities to the trading environment, which can be an increased risk. When you place your order we take a parallel position in the underlying market, so we can’t change or reverse your order once it’s been executed
