German FX broker FXFlat has launched trading on exchange-traded futures for its clients as the company continues to complement its offering that currently includes FX, CFDs, and cryptocurrencies.
The move enables investors to gain exposure to US futures from derivatives exchange CME. FXFlat also provides direct access to trading on the German exchange Eurex. They can be used as tools for hedging existing positions or taking a view on market movements, with leverage to maximize the outcome of their trades.
In addition, popular futures such as E-mini S&P 500, E-mini Nasdaq 100 and E-micros are tradable at FXFlat now.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer this service to our customers now,” said Rafael Neustadt CEO of FXFlat Wertpapierhandelsbank.
The announcement follows a two-week beta test phase for selected clients back in April, and today the broker rolls out the new assets to all customers.

Earlier this year, FXFlat expanded its range of cryptocurrency instruments through the addition of trading support for additional coins, which join its already installed CFDs on Bitcoin.
Established in 1997, FXFlat is a trademark of independent and privately owned FXFlat Wertpapierhandelsbank GmbH. Considered a dominant player in Germany, it is a full-fledged STP broker regulated by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). CapTrader – which is a part of the company – offers stocks, options, and futures trading since 2009.
Earlier in 2017, FXFlat has become the first German broker to offer MetaTrader 5 (MT5) platform, the newer and more advanced alternative over the long-established MetaTrader 4.
Commenting on the news, Samed Yilmaz CFOO said: “It’s not only that FXFlat started to offer exchange traded futures, but beyond that, FXFlat has equipped this product with a multitude of advantages that are unique like very low margin requirements, cost free realtime exchange quotes for active clients and extremely low commissions.”
