  • CFI offers its clients access to the global financial markets through two of the most advanced and widely used trading platforms: Metatrader 5 and cTrader.
  • Both platforms offer similar functionalities and it’s about personal preference. Some people have been using Metatrader 5 for years while others tried cTrader and enjoyed this up-and-coming platform.
  • Both, MetaTrader 5 and cTrader are available on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac as well as through any web browser using the web version.
  • While the platforms themselves are light on their data needs, the changing prices and constantly dynamic markets require a fast enough internet connection to make sure that you are seeing the latest prices in real-time and as they are happening.
  • While it is much easier and more convenient to trade on your own and directly through our platforms, CFI offers offline trading through our trading desk. You can simply call us and one of our traders will assist you with placing orders.

  • Technical analysis focuses on studying and analyzing previous charts and price patterns which could help predict the possible outcome of current price action. Technical analysis is mainly used for short-term trading but can also be applied for a longer period. On the other hand, Fundamental Analysis focuses on the key economic and financial figures of the asset in question and gauges the current strength or weakness based on those numbers.
  • While there are endless ways to trade the markets, we recommend that traders spend time understanding how price moves while also looking at the underlying fundamental conditions of an asset. It’s imperative that traders use both, technical and fundamental analysis while also finding a short-term or long-term trading approach that suits their style, character, and risk tolerance.
  • The best way to manage your trading risk is by looking at trading as a business. The existence of stop loss and take profit orders helps in keeping your trading journey in check. Stop-loss orders protect you in case the market keeps moving against you and helps limit your loss, based on the price of your choice. Take profit orders allow you to book profits at a specified level and is useful as the possibility that the market reverses remains elevated at all times. Furthermore, leverage plays a major role in helping traders manage their risk. We encourage the use of lower leverage especially for those who are risk averse as higher leverage can easily lead to bigger exposure and higher risk.
  • CFI generates daily analytical reports that focus on the most traded products across the market and gives an overview of support, resistance, and overall sentiment and expectations. CFI also offers its clients access to powerful third-party tools and reports generated by some of the biggest names in the world of analysis. There are no guarantees to success or making money and whether the reports are generated in-house or offered by third-party providers, it’s important for traders to remember that those are personal opinions and should not be construed as advice or reasons to initiate trades. Traders should always consult with a financial advisor or use their own judgment when trading.
