As with the vast majority of platforms these days, Trade Nation offers a proprietary web based platform that is accessed online with no need to download any software. It offers access to a wide variety of tradable markets including commodities, indices, individual shares, bonds and much more. Although market choice isn’t as vast as with the likes of IG, there is certainly enough variety to keep most traders entertained. Within the platform you can take advantage of a number of risk management tools including limit orders, stop losses, guaranteed stops and trailing stops.
Not only is Trade Nation’s platform available online, there is also a mobile version that allows traders to open and close bets, amend positions, monitor prices and view an array of data from their smart phones and tablets.
