Among the currency brokers and online CFDs, that is the Contracts for Difference, that can be found in the Internet network is certainly to be noted STO, a broker that gives its customers the opportunity to have different solutions for transactions in the financial markets and on a specialized forex platform. STO is the trade name of the largest group of AFX Markets Ltd and AFX Capital Markets Ltd which was founded in 2009 and started operating in 2010 by opening offices in many of the world's most famous financial centres such as Milan, London, Shanghai, Limassol and New York.
STO has a large number of experienced professionals in the financial sector who provide their clients with the most professional support and the opportunity to obtain training among the most complete, useful information about financial markets, as well as technical analysis that are essential to take advantage of many advantages in their operations such as graphic indicators and EA which are highly advanced trading tools to allow users of high quality trading experiences.
When the STO division was established in 2009, the aim was to bring a trading experience to the market that was more competitive than those available to create a market of optimal conditions. Nowadays, after almost ten years, this broker is closer to meeting its objective by providing its clients with an increasingly extensive service from the point of view of CFDs and increasingly advantageous such as protection from negative balances and regulation that takes place by two supervisory authorities.
Slowly STO is approaching the top of the industry, offering users access to some of the world's most active markets and a wealth of support from contacts with a wide network of traders, account managers and experienced portfolio managers with a high level of expertise, all creating a truly unique trading experience.
As if that were not enough, since last year STO has been working with Quantic, the AFX asset management arm, so that it can offer its clients greater management of their portfolio and guarantee them access to a product to invest in at an institutional level.
In conclusion, STO provides financial services for Forex trading, equities and bonds, indices and commodities. It is a broker that follows the regulation of the FCA, the Financial Conduct Authority, and the CySEC, the Cyprus Securities Exchange Commission which are the top with regard to regulations and business ethics. The funds of its clients are prudently insured through the FSCS, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and also through the ICG, the Investor Compensation Fund.
As for trading accounts, there are also different types of accounts available to clients, such as the classic account which is best suited for traders who do not yet have a great experience, or the premium account for investors who are more attentive to narrow spreads, or the Multi Account Allocation Manager account, or MAAM, if you plan to manage more than one account on behalf of third parties.
The Balance Protection Plan should not be underestimated, as it gives customers the security of maintaining a constantly positive balance that never goes into the red; all this is made even more convenient by the different payment methods available, which are extremely secure and guarantee the protection of money through the use of bank accounts in the United Kingdom, which are completely secreted.
STO seems to have all the cards in order and offers everything a trader, beginner or expert could need for a perfect trading experience.
CFDs are Contracts for Difference, instruments used to move the prices of shares, government securities, indices, etc., in the market. CFDs are used at precise times in the market. For example, if you think that certain actions, in an already bullish context, could rise even more level, it's time to buy.
Today we will analyze the price movement that distinguishes every financial instrument. All this to give us the opportunity to predict more reliably the trend of the market on which we intend to invest.
It is much easier to analyze some data through the reading of graphs than the discussion that can arise around simple numerical inputs. Through the graphs it will be possible to monitor information related to volumes and other technical indicators (they are displayed at the base of the graph characterizing the time axis). To give a concrete example, the bands of Bollinger are directly represented on the price graph.
Let's start immediately with a nice definition. In financial jargon, the option is an asymmetric derivative instrument which, in simple terms, translates into a contract with a non-binding clause to buy or sell the security on which the option has been subscribed. The security in question - which may be a share, a pair of currencies, a commodity or another financial product - is called an "underlying instrument" and can be subject to a call or put option (also known as a put and call option).
