AvaTrade has launched futures trading, providing opportunities on popular markets like gold, Nasdaq, 10-Year US Treasury Note, and micro EUR/USD.

Key Takeaways

  • AvaFutures offers trading on 35+ assets spanning indices, commodities, currencies, treasuries, metals, and cryptocurrencies.
  • There are no deposit fees, platform fees, or level 2 market data fees, while mini and standard futures contracts are priced from $1.75 per trade and micro futures from $0.75.
  • Futures trading is supported on the MetaTrader 5 platform, delivering 80+ indicators, one-click trading and customizable alerts.

Futures trading provides retail investors with opportunities to speculate on forward-looking prices, while also providing a vehicle to hedge against volatility.

Futures also offer notable advantages over contracts for difference (CFDs) – a popular product amongst active traders.

Notably, higher liquidity can make entering and exiting positions easier. Futures also offer price discovery influenced by market volume, whereas CFDs typically have prices derived and set by brokers.

Similar to CFDs, futures allow you to control larger positions through leverage (amplifying profits and losses).
