Since its inception in 2006, AvaTrade has been a prominent player in the financial market. Initially concentrating on Contracts for Difference (CFDs) spanning stocks, commodities, indices, and cryptocurrencies, the firm has now broadened its offerings to include options trading.
A distinguishing feature of AvaTrade is its diverse array of trading platforms, tailored to meet various trading preferences. Traders can select from platforms like MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 for CFD trading. For CFDs and options, AvaTradeGO, the company’s proprietary platform, is available. For options trading specifically, they provide AvaOptions.
Operated under the jurisdiction of the Central Bank of Ireland, AvaTrade holds licenses in multiple global regions, including Israel, the Middle East, South Africa, and Japan, and an international license for Latin America based in the British Virgin Islands. While already established in Australia and Poland, AvaTrade is actively working towards consolidating its license in Spain, aligning with the latest CNMV regulations.
Looking ahead, AvaTrade is poised to inaugurate an office in Madrid, Spain, where it will host online training sessions and educational seminars. Furthermore, the firm is gearing up to incorporate vanilla options in compliance with the new CNMV regulations, alongside the introduction of barrier options.
These exotic options come with a predetermined maximum loss level, aiming to broaden the spectrum of trading products accessible to their client base. AvaTrade is actively working on integrating futures contracts, with a specific focus on index futures, in order to provide a more diverse array of options for its traders.
