FUTURES

Futures are highly popular trading instruments for traders looking for a flexible and diverse portfolio.

Futures contracts work by giving traders the ability to make a profit from the price margin before the specific closing date of a future instrument.

The futures market is one of highly liquidity. Future contracts are considered to be amongst the most liquidated instruments, with large volumes being traded daily. Opening and closing positions can therefore be done easily with fast execution and no delays, through IronFX’s award winning platforms.

With the lowest commissions and margin requirements, IronFX aims help you to maximize your profits. Take advantage of the widest range of trading products available and diversify your portfolios either by trading on an equity index or any other futures instrument.
