In addition to the MetaTrader4, STO offers their own platform, called AFX fast. Since most of customers will have a lot of opportunities to meet MT4 platform which can be considered a standard on the Forex/CFDs market, also creeping into binary options, we will focus our STO platform review on the AFX fast.
The look and feel of the AFX Fast is a bit different than what we are used to from the MetaTrader products. On the left is the quote list showing assets. Middle is the trade board that presents assets with sell and buy buttons in red and blue. Each asset is a separate box where the amount of lots can be selected and big buttons can be used to place the trade. Spread indicator is also below the buttons.
After the trade is placed, it is shown in the bottom part with the open positions, which is a switch board with another tab being open orders. Each trade listed has buttons to control the position – one can either close it. Double up on the position or trade in reverse of the position.
On the top bar of the platform, the trader can see the cash, equity margin and other info. There hedging can be switched on as well as 1-click trading. On the right side, the pane can show either currency exposure or account summary.
On the top, the other tabs offer access to the charting tool which is really good. With the tabbed structure it enables work on several positions at once. There is also an activity log and one can also arrange the looks of the platform according to own preferences. The trades are visible in a strip in the bottom, even when chart analysis is in progress.
The asset selection is wide and STO offers many types of underlying assets to trade CFDs on their platforms.
