Why is IC Markets MetaTrader 5 Platform Different?

True ECN Connectivity

True ECN Connectivity allows IC Markets to offer industry leading spreads and trading conditions on the MT5 trading platform.

Gain access to institutional grade liquidity from the world’s leading investment banks, hedge funds and dark pool liquidity execution venues through our True ECN engine. Traders can enjoy trading with no dealing desk, price requotes or any sort of manipulation on our market leading platforms. Our extensive mix of up to 50 different liquidity providers makes IC Markets the top choice for high volume traders, scalpers and automated traders who demand the best trading conditions including the lowest spreads and fastest execution speeds.

Ultra Fast Order Execution

All IC Markets MetaTrader 5 servers are located in the Equinix NY4 data centre in New York for optimal execution speed. The NY4 data centre is known as one of the most secure and reliable data centres in the world. The MetaTrader 5 servers are cross connected to our ECN to ensure the lowest latency and fastest execution.

The IC Markets MetaTrader 5 trade servers have latency of less than 1 millisecond to major VPS providers either collocated in the NY4 data centre or through dedicated lines to nearby data centres.

No Restrictions on Trading

There are no trading restrictions on the IC Markets MetaTrader 5 platform. We offer ideal trading conditions for scalping and high frequency trading, even allowing traders to place orders between the spread as there is no minimum order distance and a freeze level of 0. This means orders including stop loss orders can be placed at any level.

Traders can also hedge positions as there is no first in first out (FIFO) rule with IC Markets. Traders do not pay margin on hedged trades and enjoy the benefits of margin netting.

Level II Pricing – Market Depth

The MetaTrader 5 Depth of Market displays the full range of available prices directly from our liquidity providers. This feature provides full transparency of available liquidity for each currency at any given time. High liquidity, asynchronous spot prices and low latency guarantee the tightest possible spreads.

Spreads from 0.0 Pips

IC Markets offers the tightest spreads out of all forex brokers around the world with our EURUSD spread averaging just 0.1 pips. This is currently the tightest average EURUSD spread globally. IC Markets is always able to keep spreads tight by sourcing liquidity from our diverse mix of up to 50 different liquidity providers.
