Skilling, a New Online Forex and CFD Trading Platform That Makes Trading Simple, Launches Today

April 1, 2019 GMT

STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 1, 2019--Skilling operates in the financial sector and has designed and developed the platform to be simple for first-time traders and intuitive for seasoned pros. Among Skilling’s many offerings is the Trade Assistant, a feature unique to Skilling which will guide new users through the whole process of setting up their first trade.

“Our mission is to make trading simple and accessible. Unfortunately, many people believe that trading in shares, currencies and commodities is an overly-complicated activity. Skilling will increase accessibility to the world’s financial markets by combining a user-friendly trading platform with training materials that will allow users to continuously improve their knowledge and develop as traders. Simply put, we want to ‘Make. Trading. Simple,’” says CEO Anders Berglund.

Skilling offers exposure to financial instruments through CFD (Contract for Difference) derivative instruments. The advantage with CFDs is that they can be traded quickly, are highly accessible, and allow people to earn capital daily even when the price of a share, currency or commodity falls. Large positions can also be traded with a relatively small amount of capital.

“This type of trading always involves a certain amount of risk – but with training, secure systems and smart functions – Skilling will give more people the opportunity to trade in shares, currencies and commodities in both bull and bear markets,” CEO Anders Berglund continues.

In the first phase, Skilling will launch its platform in Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom and Germany. Future plans include launching in the rest of Europe and, eventually going global.
