Retail broker Oanda now offers MetaTrader 5 to clients in Japan, the firm announced today.
The multi-asset platform was first introduced to demo account holders in December.
Oanda has now enabled Japanese clients to trade on the platform through their live accounts.
The addition of MetaTrader 5 to Oanda’s range of trading platforms was a response to requests from clients. It is further driving home the firm’s commitment to addressing the needs of active traders and to expanding its range of products.
According to Oanda, the platform will also be made available in other geographies over the coming months. “We also look forward to rolling it out around the world soon, in response to client demand,” Kurt vom Scheidt, Chief Operating Officer at Oanda, concluded.
