GFT Markets has announced that they have made CFD products on their MT4 platform. GFT had initially only provided FX trading on MT4, after launching the platform in 2011. According to the broker, the launch of CFDs occurs after listening to customer demand for the product. The new CFDs will include Gold and global equity indexes. The timing for this news is interesting as it occurs shortly after Metaquotes launched MT4 to MT4 connectivity for the platform.

London, March 12th, 2013 – GFT Markets, the global provider of retail derivatives, has today announced the launch of CFDs to its MT4 platform. Extending a service that has been available to forex traders since 2011, GFT customers can now apply automated trading strategies to a range of CFD instruments including major indices and gold.
Martin Slaney, Director of Product Development at GFT Markets, commented:
“The key benefit of MT4 is that clients can develop or select from a predefined list of automated trading strategies. This has so far been limited to currency pairs, but feedback has shown universal demand for it to be extended to other asset classes too.”
