HomeTrader Financial Markets Pty Ltd (HTFM) provides clients with a CFD trading platform backed up by a dedicated team of qualified dealers.

- Broadening the range of instruments available to trade - HTFM currently offers CFDs but plans to expand into equities and exchange traded options in the coming months.

- Provide value added services to standard broking -The Company is well positioned to add value to its transactional business through its educational product offerings in order to create a competitive advantage in this market.
