What are SMART Signals?

The SMART Signals engine uses a selection algorithm to automatically monitor 36 major global markets across thousands of price data points to highlight potential trading opportunities.

Once it has identified a price pattern which has been successful historically in a given market, it will then show them through the SMART Signals dashboard.

Each signal represents a short-term potential trade in a 4-, 6-, 8- or 12-hour time frame and comes complete with an auto-populated trade ticket with suggested take-profit and stop-loss levels. Please note, signal trades will not automatically close at the end of the signal period. You can choose when to close them out.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
