What's the difference between a trading platform and a broker?

A trading platform is the software you use to place orders, monitor the markets and more. A trading provider is who will then execute those orders on your behalf.

City Index, for example, is a trading provider. You open an account with us which enables you to buy and sell thousands of financial markets. You’ll use one of our trading platforms – such as Web Trader, our mobile apps, MetaTrader 4, or TradingView – to open and close positions.
