Saxo Bank Reduces Minimum Deposit Threshold to Access MT4 Offering

The company said that users could have prime brokerage access to feeds from tier 1 banks and non-banks.

Saxo Bank, a leading online trading services provider, announced on Thursday that it automated its MetaTrader 4 (MT4) onboarding processes and had reduced the minimum deposit threshold. According to the press release shared with Finance Magnates, the minimum deposit is now GBP 3,000, which is down compared to the previous GBP 15,000 requirement to join the platform.

Users of the platform could use a single account to trade multiple assets in Saxo using either the provider’s own pricing or a prime brokerage setup with direct market access to over 25 leading liquidity providers. ”Offering smoother access to MT4 at a much lower cost is another example of how we are empowering our clients with broader access to global capital markets and best-in-class institutional-grade execution. We pride ourselves on delivering our clients a truly differentiated trading experience, through a single account clients not only get access to MT4 but multiple assets and currencies as well as 25 years’ experience in managing global liquidity and execution,” Peter Plester, Head of FX Prime Brokerage at Saxo Bank, commented.

Moreover, Saxo Bank stated that customers could access the ‘Account Shield’ feature, which allows them to protect their account value by setting a tolerance ratio when using automated trading.
