Pairs Trading on MT5

Gain exposure on two instruments in a single trade. With Pairs Trading, you can trade one stock or index against another, just like an FX pair.

Trade one stock or index versus another.

Pairs trading allows you to take price advantage of two stocks or indices whose prices are correlated, or connected to each other. This means that you can go long on one stock or index in a pair, while simultaneously going short on the other.

At Hantec Markets, our Pairs Trading product enables you to:

  • Access 18 unique CFD pairs, allowing you to trade TWO stocks or indices in ONE trade.
  • Earn from the difference in market performance of the two instruments that have a price relationship.
  • Whether markets move up or down, you can take advantage.

Pairs Trading involves simultaneously buying and selling two instruments that have a price relationship. The overall market direction has no relevance to the profit or loss you may make with Pairs Trading. However, remember that all trading, including Pairs Trading, carries risk of loss of capital, so implementing risk management practices is still important.

Pairs Trading with Hantec Markets is available on the MetaTrader 5 (MT5) platforms. If you don’t have an MT5 account, you can request one from the My Accounts section of your client portal. To download the platform, visit the Download Centre on your client portal.

Additional Information

Yes, corporate actions are applicable for the underlying instruments in a pair. Corporate actions are applied to each of the instruments independently, meaning that you will see the corporate action reflected on your account in the same way as if you were holding the instruments separately.

A Pairs Trading contract will only price when both underlying markets are open.

At Hantec Markets, trading hours will be 13:30 to 20:00 GMT [16:30 to 23:00 server time] for stock pairs, and 22:00 to 21:00 GMT the next day for index pairs [01:00 to 24:00 server time] with a trading break from 21:00 to 22:00 GMT.

To calculate the Profit and Loss in account currency terms, the profit/loss in units of the pair is multiplied by the terms instrument price and then converted from the terms instrument quote currency back to the account currency.

Profit/loss in account currency = Pairs profit/loss × Terms Instrument Price × FX Conversion

Our Pairs Trading products can be suited to beginners as these pairs are curated already by trading experts, meaning that you don’t need advanced market knowledge to select the pairs yourself. However, it’s important to note that even with pre-selected pairs, Pairs Trading still requires some understanding of the strategy, including how to execute trades, manage risk, and monitor the performance of the pairs.
