What you can trade on EightCap MT4?

On EightCap MT4, you can invest in various markets altogether.

All you need is one live trading account.

1. Forex Currency Pairs

Trade more than 40 major and secondary foreign exchange currency pairs on the MT4 platform.

The foreign exchange market is the most liquid market in the world and the lowest cost market for active traders. Foreign exchange products are over-the-counter (OTC) and do not need to be traded on a specific centralized exchange. Forex currency pairs can be traded at different time levels, whether it is a few seconds or a few months. There is a wide range of market factors that affect currency movements, including economic data.

Which FX Currency Pairs are available on EightCap?

Customers can trade more than 40 currency pairs in Eightcap. All the most liquid and most popular major currency pairs in the market can be traded through the Eightcap exchange trading platform.

EUR/USD
The currency pair with the largest trading volume on the market, according to 2019 data, accounts for 24% of the market’s daily trading volume. This currency pair represents the two largest economies in the world-the European Union and the United States. High liquidity makes EUR/USD the currency pair with the lowest spreads.
USD/JPY
The yen is regarded by many investors as a safe haven, which can maintain its value while avoiding risks. But it tends to underperform when the global economy is performing well. For these reasons, many traders will trade the currency pair based on global macroeconomic factors.
USD/CAD
The Canadian dollar is a currency that is highly correlated with commodity prices, especially oil. It is also affected by the difference in interest rates between the United States and Canada. Traders often use the currency pair and energy prices to speculate, and often use trend-following strategies.
USD/CHF
The Swiss franc is also regarded as a safe-haven currency, so when the market avoids risks, the Swiss franc will appreciate, and when the risk tolerance increases, the Swiss franc will depreciate. Traders will often trade when there are geopolitical events and potential financial crises.
AUD/USD
Australia is one of the world’s major commodity exporters, so the Australian dollar is highly correlated with the price of bulk commodities. This means that when there is a cyclical rise in commodities, the Australian dollar tends to show a strong upward trend.
GBP/USD
This currency pair is the oldest currency pair traded in the world. Although volatility has been low in history, volatility has increased since the European financial crisis and the Brexit referendum. It may be a very profitable currency pair, but it also comes with risks.

Merits and Demerits to trade Forex

Forex or FX is the abbreviation of foreign exchange, which means the currency belonging to a country or market. In the transaction, foreign exchange is related to the buying and selling of these currencies, and income is generated through changes in the value of these currencies. The foreign exchange market is the most liquid market in the world, with a daily trading volume of more than 5 trillion U.S. dollars, which is why it attracts many investors.

Advantages of trading foreign exchange are:

  • The most liquid trading market in the world.
  • The lowest cost, the lowest spread.
  • Leverage as high as 400:1 can make it easy for traders to profit from price fluctuations.
  • Use a small amount or a large amount of funds to go long and short in the market.

Disadvantages of trading foreign exchange are:

  • Forex trading is competitive and requires investment of time and energy to be proficient in trading.
  • Misuse of leverage can lead to losses, and if market fluctuations are not beneficial to you, most of your investment may be lost.
  • The past performance of the strategy does not guarantee future performance.

2. Commodities

Trade gold, silver, and crude oil on the industry-leading MT4 platform.

Commodities include a large number of commodities traded on global exchanges. The world economy depends on various commodities to varying degrees. Complex factors drive the supply and demand of energy, metals and agricultural products. When the market tries to find a price that balances supply and demand, it may cause prices to fluctuate sharply.

For traders, all time frames from a few minutes to a few years have the opportunity to trade commodities. Commodity prices can often establish trends that last for 5 to 10 years. However, supply and demand will be affected by weather, geopolitical factors, inflation, interest rates, consumer spending and economic conditions. This means that new trading opportunities can arise at any time.

Trade Commodities on EightCap

Trade Brent and West Texas Crude Oil on EightCap

There are many types of transactions in the crude oil market, depending on the location, quality and characteristics of crude oil. The two most common trading varieties in the market are Brent crude oil and West Texas Intermediate crude oil.

Brent crude oil is extracted from the North Sea and West Texas Intermediate crude oil is extracted from North America. West Texas Intermediate crude oil is a better product for producing diesel, while Brent crude oil is better at producing gasoline. However, other factors will also determine the prices of these two products. The transportation of oil is expensive, so the location of demand, production volume, and availability of storage facilities are all important factors.

The price difference between the two has been only a few dollars over the years, but in the past ten years, the price of Brent crude oil has soared and is now trading at a price of 5-10 dollars higher than West Texas Intermediate crude oil.

West Texas Intermediate
You can also trade West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil CFDs on Eightcap. As global events affect commodity prices, West Texas Intermediate crude oil provides traders with long and short trading opportunities. After understanding the recent price history of West Texas Intermediate crude oil and its influencing factors, traders can make informed decisions when holding positions.
Brent Crude Oil
Brent oil or Brent light sweet crude oil is rapidly becoming the global benchmark for the petroleum industry and the entire energy market. Because the price fluctuates greatly and is closely connected with the global economy, it is very popular among traders.

Trade Energy CFDs on EightCap

Trade Gold and Silver on EightCap

Gold and silver provide traders with opportunities to profit from the increasing risk aversion in global markets and speculative trading around inflation. Both are physical products with limited supply, which means they provide real stored value during periods of uncertainty such as inflation.

Many factors that affect the price of gold and silver are the same, but there are also certain differences. The price of precious metals is affected by investor preferences for risky assets (including bonds, stocks and commodities), geopolitical events, expected inflation and interest rates, and the strength of the U.S. dollar. Movements in the mining industry also affect prices.

Although gold mining still exists, silver has been widely used in industrial processes. It has been used in photography and printing in the past and is now used by the solar industry. This means that the total supply of silver is gradually declining, providing support for its price.

Gold
Eightcap offers gold CFDs, which is one of the easiest ways to trade in the gold market. Before entering the market, factors and events affecting the price of gold should be considered.
Silver
You can also trade Eightcap Silver CFDs. Similarly, before entering the market, factors and trends affecting the silver market should be considered, including recent historical prices.

Trade Gold and Silver on EightCap

Margin Requirements of Commodity Trading

When trading CFDs, you only need to deposit a portion of the total value of the contract. This is called margin, and it allows traders to trade a large number of orders with a small amount of funds. Margin is also used for leveraged transactions, and customers can make full use of leverage when trading. Margin is required to be deposited before opening a position in your account. Your account should also hold additional funds to make up for any potential losses and avoid liquidation. Remember, leverage is a double-edged sword. Although it can magnify your gains, it will also increase your losses.

You can trade with the trend or against the trend. Contrarian or mean reversal trading may be profitable, but this usually requires a lot of trading experience. If you are not familiar with trading, you can use trend trading as a starting point.

3. Stock Indices

stock indices image

Trade around the clock on the MT4 platform and instantly execute the world’s largest stock index.

Index CFDs are CFDs on stock indexes. A contract for difference (CFD) is a financial derivative instrument that allows traders to obtain long or short positions with prices. In CFD trading, traders do not own any underlying assets, but the trading orders they hold “own” any change in the price of the asset.

An index is a packaged asset that is usually weighted by the market value of its constituent stocks. The larger the company, the greater the impact on the value of the index.

You can use a variety of tools to trade stock indexes, including futures, options, ETFs, and CFDs. Futures and options trading requires a broker to open a trading account on each exchange, and usually, the contract is relatively large.

ETF (Exchange-Traded Fund) is an ideal choice for long-term traders. The ETF itself owns all the stock products in the index. Therefore, investing in ETF products means investing in all fund stock indexes without buying every stock.

For active traders and traders with smaller funds, CFDs are the least costly and easiest to trade. Traders can enter multiple markets through one trading account. Unlike ETFs, CFDs provide leverage and short-selling options.
