German Broker FXFlat to Launch Forex Futures to Meet Demand

In May, the broker launched ETFs for its clients.

German foreign exchange (forex) broker FXFlat continues to grow its offering and announced this week that it is planning on expanding its futures portfolio to include forex futures.

The announcement comes just over a month after the German broker launched trading on exchange-traded futures (ETFs) for its clients. This offering was launched as the company continues to complement its offering that currently includes FX, CFDs, and cryptocurrencies.
