Direct Market Access (DMA) allows you to trade inside the market spread and straight into the order books of the world’s major exchanges.
The benefits of DMA
In comparison with regular Over-the-Counter (OTC) CFD trading, which shows you a single market price, DMA trading lets you view significantly extended pricing data from a range of global exchanges.
This means you can consider market liquidity and place orders at any level, potentially alleviating any market spread.
With DMA, you can participate in stock auctions outside of trading hours, which is sometimes when the best prices are available. DMA traders can also see the queue of orders waiting to be filled at various prices for certain stocks. Knowing the number of bids and offers in the order book may offer insight into the future direction of the stock.
