Web platforms are commonly offered by high leverage forex brokers, as well as by all other types of brokers. Unlike traditional trading platforms that needs to be downloaded on a computer, web platforms can run directly in a trader’s internet browser. Because of this, the only requirement to run a web platform is to have a good internet connection.
Web-based trading platforms are usually incredibly easy to use, and they are therefore often preferred among new traders. However, there are also many web platforms that are powerful enough to give even advanced and professional high leverage traders all the tools they need to succeed. In addition to what we think of as the typical web-based trading platforms, some downloadable platforms are also available in separate versions for web. MetaTrader for web is perhaps the best-known among these.
