The team at TFT have been optimizing their tech offering to improve the trading experience of their users. In this article, we’ll look into these changes along with what’s coming up next. These changes revolve around new and changing brokers and platforms.
Eightcap now Removed from TFT
The first change mentioned is the complete removal of all Eightcap offerings from the TFT selection. To clarify:
- All Eightcap MT4 options and MT5 options are now removed.
- You can continue to trade your account if in the challenge phase.
- If you make any changes to the account such as switching to swing, you will also be required to switch broker.
Theres not much else to say on this, so lets move on.
Transition to MT5 for all accounts
Metatrader 4 is becoming outdated and it’s not being upkept by Metaquotes which has driven TFT to move all accounts to MT5 from February onwards.
The MT5 platform is expected to integrate better with The Funded Traders’ evolution back-end tech. This should improve experiences for all traders.
New Broker Option – Blueberry Markets
This change should be available soon and will enable traders to choose MT5 Blueberry markets as an option for all accounts.
At first glance, this broker seems to offer great spreads and execution and will further enhance the options traders have when starting a challenge.
DXTrade Platform to soon be offered
This platform is popular with traders thanks to its enhanced analytical features and fast execution of trades.
We don’t have a set date for this integration but it’s understood it will be available shortly.
The Funded Trader a CTrader – The Holy Grail
One of my favourite platforms for manual trading is CTrader and I’m thrilled TFT are planning on introducing this next-gen platform.
We expect work on this to begin after the DXTrade integration is finalised.
