An asset is a financial instrument used for trading. All trades are based on the price dynamic of a chosen asset. There are different types of assets: goods (GOLD, SILVER), equity securities (Apple, Google), currency pairs (EUR/USD), and indices (CAC40, AEX).
To choose an asset you want to trade on, follow these steps:
- Click on the asset section in the top left corner of the platform to see what assets are available for your account type.
- You can scroll through the list of assets. The assets that are available to you are colored white.
- Click on the asset to trade on it.
- If you’re using the web version of a platform, you can trade on multiple assets at once. Click on the “+” button left from the asset section. The asset you choose will add up.
