Platforms FAQ

Can I trade on multiple platforms?

Yes, you can trade on multiple platforms – whatever suits your strategy and style. Many traders choose to use a combination of a web trading platform alongside a mobile trading app – so that you can monitor, edit, execute and close positions on the move as well at your desk.

City Index will automatically sync all your positions, orders and funds between our platforms, meaning you can switch between them seamlessly. However, MT4 trades will appear separately in your MT4 account.

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

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 or MetaTrader 4 – to open and close positions.
