ADMIRAL MARKETS ADDED ETFs TO METATRADER5
Admiral Markets, an extensively regulated Forex broker, added ETFs to its MT5 platform.
An Exchange traded fund (ETF) is considered to be efficient and low-risk way of gaining access to specific markets. ETF’s are most traded instruments on the market, representing pool of shares, traded all day (like stocks). They are bought through a brokerage account and traded on exchanges.
The advantages of ETFs are lower costs, the possibility of tracking the performance of the whole market segment (basket of stocks) rather than investing in single stocks, and potentially better investment results due to diversification.
The market coverage on this new Admiral Markets' account currently represents the stocks of 265 biggest companies in the UK, the US and the EU and the company is aiming to add substantially more equities in the future to provide clients with diversified options for portfolio investing.
The launch of new product represents a significant step in following directions:
MT5 traders are offered an access to real stock trading;
Diversification of securities portfolio for stock investors and traders;
Also the Admiral markets broker has emphasized its goal to promote the MetaTrader 5 platform, which is a more powerful and enhanced version of it's predecessor, MetaTrader 4.

No leverage: real stock trading 1:1
No short trading: profit only in rising markets
