Spread Betting on MT4

The MetaTrader trading platform is trusted by a huge number of traders worldwide and is known as a one-stop-shop solution for trading, technical analysis and automated trading.

InterTrader has integrated Pound-Per-Point spread betting to MT4. As a result clients at InterTrader can now run expert advisors on MetaTrader 4 to automate trading as well as analysis and testing of trading systems and strategies. The company's MT4 platform offers trading of currencies at interbank market prices plus low spreads on major stock indices and commodities via a direct market access model with no dealer intervention.

There are very few brokers that offer MT4 spread betting with indices are rare (I only know of InterTrader and ETX) and I hope that more providers will add it in future.


Shai Heffetz, Head of Financial Spread Betting and CFDs at InterTrader, made a corporate statement regarding the company's inclusion of MetaTrader 4, 'We believe that your broker should be on your side. That's why we've created a direct and transparent trading service - for both spread betting and contracts for difference founded on our 100% hedging policy, therefore, we never have a vested interest in whether our clients are making or losing money.'

The company operates a market-neutral broker model, whereby all client trades are hedged fully in the underlying market. Therefore, InterTrader Direct never carries any exposure against its client's positions, and also eliminates any potential conflict between broker and client.

Low-Cost Trading

With InterTrader you can trade at the interbank market spreads on currencies and tight spreads on indices and commodities with direct, transparent access. The only commission is InterTrader's dealing fee per trade (either included in the spread or charged as commission).

No Dealing Desk execution via automated ECN/STP processing. With no dealer intervention, no volume restrictions and no requotes. All via our MT4 platform.

High Liquidity

InterTrader's vast liquidity pool means that clients can trade in large size and still benefit from very tight spreads with no worries about unreliable execution. InterTrader claim that the spread bets are executed with automated processing via ECNs and through straight through processing (STP) with no dealing desk. InterTrader does the aggregation in the background which involves contracting with different liquidity providers such as Citi, UBS, Goldman Sachs or Barclays serving as market makers in forex, indices and commodities.
