Admiral Markets announced this Monday that it is yet again expanding its stock and stock contracts-for-difference (CFD) offering in the Asia Pacific region, by providing access to the Japanese market.
In particular, clients of the foreign exchange (forex) and CFD broker can, as of today, trade some of the most popular stocks from Asia’s largest stock exchange – the NIKKEI 225. This is available for clients that hold Admiral.MT5 and Admiral.Invest accounts.
Through Admiral Market’s MetaTrader 5 account, users can trade a range of new instruments, – specifically, 195 CFDs on Japanese shares. This includes top Japanese consumer electronics companies, like Panasonic, Casio, and Sony.
Furthermore, shares of car manufacturers, like Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Toyota, as well as communication leaders, like SoftBank Group, KDDI, and Nippon Telegraph & Telephone, are also available.

Admiral Markets continues APAC expansion
Admiral markets appear to be making a push towards the APAC region, with the broker actively expanding its product range in the region.
This is because today’s announcement follows on the heels of the broker, which has operations in Estonia, the United Kingdom, and Cyprus, announcing that it has added the ability to trade Australian shares via its MetaTrader 5 platform.
As Finance Magnates reported last week, clients of Admiral Markets have access to the Australian market through Metaquotes’ most recent version of its flagship FX trading platform, MetaTrader 5. Namely, they can trade shares from the Australia 200 index.
Specifically, the broker’s clients can now trade up to 157 shares of Australia’s biggest banks – Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank, Australia and New Zealand Bank, and Westpac, alongside the country’s leading mining companies, large industrials, and top telco.
