Online Trading

The internet has made investing significantly more accessible to private investors. Before online trading platforms, investors would have to place an order with their broker by telephone. Now, the global financial markets are accessible to anyone with access to a computer, and investors are able to input trading orders directly via the internet.

Online trading gives both beginners and advanced traders the opportunity to trade spread bets, CFDs and FX on global financial assets. One should never associate online trading with gambling. Traders should avoid making spontaneous or ill thought out decisions, as unplanned and poorly researched online trading can be disastrous.  On the other hand, as with any other form of trading, losses are an inevitable part of online trading and traders should be comfortable with this. In order to succeed, every trader should aim to manage potential loss and risk.

Online trading provides the opportunity to make money online (of course, losses are also possible) and to keep a constant vigil on how your investments are performing. Because the internet is always available, in libraries, at work, in internet cafés and of course through WIFI on your personal laptop, it is always possible to monitor and analyse online trading markets, open and fund an account or to keep up to date with performed deals.


Online Trading Platforms

Our online trading platform will provide you with the means to trade CFDs and spread bets on a wide range of assets including indices, currencies, commodities and shares. The online trading platform will give you access to live stock prices, along with the ability to immediately buy and sell assets when you see an opportunity.

Investors using online trading platforms can access the markets at any time; many markets all over the world are in service 24 hours a day. Investors can fund their account online and keep up to date with the market. Online trading also gives investors more opportunity to monitor performance (i.e. to analyse their own trading mistakes) in order to improve on future trading. Using Accendo Markets‘ online trading platform gives you all of this, plus the benefit of our daily reports, research and trading opportunities. You will also have a professional trader available to answer your questions, help you search the market for trading opportunities, and guide you through the procedure involved in setting up and operating your online account.

We are pleased to offer potential clients a free demonstration online trading platform, including:

  • £10,000 demo money to trade the financial markets
  • Live price quotes for shares, commodities, indices and forex
  • Trading charts and tools
  • Live news feeds

This demonstration is completely free and without obligation, so your credit/debit card details are not required.

However, we hope that when you have experienced our online trading platform first hand, you will want to join our list of online trading clients. You can open a live online trading account with all the facilities you enjoyed in the demo, plus access to the live online trading platform to trade with real money.

If after the demo expires you decide not to trade with Accendo Markets, you will owe nothing.

‘Knowledge is Power’ (Francis Bacon)

Choosing which stock to invest in can be overwhelming for a new trader, and always challenging for the established investor. Our professional traders are here to support and educate you in the process involved to research stocks and shares when online trading, and to help you identify your own trading opportunities. Make use of Accendo Markets’ research staff and resources, they are here to help you. Whilst we can help you with your trading strategy (i.e. you tell us what to look for), we do not provide advice. If necessary, please take advice from an independent financial adviser.

Knowledge is the main key to successful online trading  for a living, and researching a potential investment thoroughly will enable you to make an educated decision as to whether the company you are investing in has a good future. Investors should research news releases and industrial publications. Also look at the company’s financial reports and applicable charts before using our online trading platform.

And remember: ‘money can’t buy you friends, but you get a better class of enemy’ (Spike Milligan)

As a client of Accendo Markets, you’ll have access to your own online trading platform. There’s no need to download software; simply use the username and password provided and login via the Accendo Markets website.

Your online trading platform will give you access to global financial markets, including commodities, currencies, shares and indices. You can trade at the touch of a button on your platform, or call your trader to place the order for you at no extra cost.

Your trader will be on hand to assist you with your online trading platform and trading strategy, as well as provide you with the latest market talk from the trading floor.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.

Being new to direct trading I needed help and was given all the time and advice that I needed to feel fully able to make decisions on what I wanted to invest in. I asked for and got exactly the type of info I required provided by Tom Cook, who I would recommend to anyone looking for help.
