Global award-winning forex broker, FXTM, has increased its product offering for the Pro Accounts to provide MetaTrader 5 users with the ability to directly own and trade stocks from the NYSE and NASDAQ exchanges. Investors are now able to own high-value stocks, including Apple Inc. (AAPL), Alibaba Group (BABA), Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL), Amazon Inc. (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), ExxonMobil Corporation (XOM), Facebook Inc. (FB), Microsoft Corporation (MSFT), Johnson& Johnson (JNJ) and JP Morgan Chase (JPM).
This new offering is in line with the broker's client-focused efforts to expand investment solutions and innovate account types. In 2018, interest in trading company shares was closely monitored by FXTM through the broker’s Shares account. From December 2017 to December 2018, the number of Share accounts opened increased by 170%, making this the ideal time for the company to offer MT5 FXTM Pro Account holders the option to directly own, buy and sell shares from their favorite companies.
