Forex Broker Spreads
Forex is the most traded market in the world offering numerous trading opportunities. When the spread is tight, your trading cost reduces.
Our diverse liquidity mix and partnerships with leading banking and non-banking financial institutions for deep liquidity also plays a key role in ensuring that we consistently deliver tight spreads to our traders, starting as low as 0.0 pips.
Spreads Affect Your Trades
Successful traders always keep track of any changes in the spread, basing trading decisions on such changes. Spread size plays an important role in trading, especially for scalpers and intraday traders:
When the difference between the ask and bid prices are higher than usual, it could either indicate a period of low liquidity or high market volatility. For instance, non-major forex pairs tend to have a higher spread than major pairs.
When the difference between the ask and bid prices is lower than usual, it could indicate high liquidity or a period of low market volatility. For instance, spreads tend to be lower during the major forex sessions.
Trade Execution Matters
Pricing alone cannot bring results without reliable and fast execution. With the help of our advanced charting tools, numerous technical indicators, market news and insights, and real-time price charts, trading becomes an enjoyable and satisfying experience.
Understanding High and Low Forex Spreads
Spreads are influenced by several factors, such as liquidity, volatility and market news. Liquidity can decline and spreads can widen in the days or hours leading up to major economic news events and between trading sessions.
Fixed spreads remain the same, no matter what the market conditions are. Variable spreads keep on changing, based on the supply and demand of the instruments and the overall market volatility.
