CFDs

A common complaint of Forex brokerages is being confined to only one product, and many brokers are asking for the ability to be a multiple asset class to cater to a wide variety of traders, without the risk of requiring potential customers to learn about the Forex industry in order to conduct business. CFDs add new diversified revenue streams to your brokerage, attract clients from other markets, and enable brokerages to improve their web presence by attracting internet traffic from a wider variety of sites.

CFDs are extremely beneficial to brokerages, especially when directly compared to actual futures contracts. Brokers have the ability to offer CFDs to their clients via the MT4 Platform, arguably the most popular trading platform in the industry. A liquidity bridge allows brokers to offer higher-risk products like CFDs with minimal dealing risk.

CFDs also boast zero commission costs and low minimum contract sizes while futures contracts charge steep commissions and require hefty contract sizes. The ability to use high leverage makes CFDs an ideal product for day traders.

CFD liquidity is now offered to institutional customers through Boston Prime, and brokerages can immediately take advantage of these many benefits. Setup is extremely easy and takes only a few days, and revenue streams are highly customizable.

Boston Prime offers an extremely versatile and lucrative list of products for CFDs:
