In short, there are two types of trading platform at ThinkMarkets for the average retail trader, the Meta Trader 4 (MT4) and cTrader. Most of us know by now what the MT4 platform is but as for the cTrader, that’s a different story. The cTrader is ThinkForex’s proprietary web platform which allows traders to trade CFDs and forex without having to download any software. Features of the cTrader include features like Real time Trading reports, Single One-Click Execution and On-Chart Interactive Chart Trading. Both the MT4 and cTrader can be downloaded as well and installed onto mobile devices such as the iPhone or Android phones.
For Muslim traders, ThinkMarkets also made provisions for a swap free Islamic trading account if they wish to trade according to Sharia laws. For traders wishing to try out the platforms, they can sign up for the 30 days free demo account. The demo account uses the same live price feed so there are no differences in terms of prices and spreads. Nevertheless, traders should bear in mind that live trading is different from demo trading as there are liquidity issues and market depth considerations that need to be taken into account.
