Admiral Markets, a multi-regulated FX and CFDs brokerage firm, has expanded its service offering by incorporating 306 new CFDs on ETFs on the MT5 platform.
Often promoted as cheaper and better than trading in future markets, CFDs on ETFs have become one of the popular investment vehicles for retail traders. The asset class typically tracks a stock market index and trades on an exchange so that it allows individuals to trade a basket of securities in a single transaction. It also creates the conditions for retail investors to trade the underlying asset with much better control of their exposure to risk margin.
As the Estonian brokerage continues to transfer activity to the MT5 terminal, it is imperative to increase the base of assets and products into the platform, in order to accommodate its entire client base.

In a press release, the Estonian-based firm said that it also has significantly increased its lineup of exchange-traded fund (ETF) derivatives for its Admiral.Invest account type, with the addition of 177 new CFDs.
Admiral Markets has been a pioneer in incorporating MetaTrader 5 (MT5) into its trading infrastructure, becoming one of earliest venues to launch the platform for its clients. The inclusion of MT5 has seen the expansion of the range of assets offered on the company’s platform.
A Natural Progression for the Business
The FCA-regulated firm broadens its product line as clients’ desire to garner exposure to regulated markets has been increasing. The inclusion of new EFTs CFDs not only helps expand trading capabilities for its clientele but also attract more traders that are looking to diversify their trading options. The case for adding more assets has been growing in recent years with clients from certain regions keen to actively trade new instruments.
Admiral Markets’ offering has seen dramatic additions in the past few months. In addition to the new assets, the company has recently expanded its cryptocurrency contracts-for-difference (CFDs). The introduction of new instruments adds to its rapidly expanding suite of cryptos, following strong demand from clients over the past few months.
