The main cost to financial spread trading clients is the spread (the difference between the sell and buy price). The wider the spread, the more costly it is for you to trade . Capital Spreads offers some of the tightest spreads available compared to the competition, making it easier for you to trade profitably.
For example, our spread on the UK 100 shares is just 0.1% - that's just 0.05% per side of the underlying market. See table opposite for more of our tight spreads.
Spreads vary out of normal trading hours.
Low Margin Requirements
Margin is the amount of money you need in your account in order to make a trade . Capital Spreads offer exceptionally low margin requirements across all our markets, meaning you only deposit a small percentage of the total value before opening a trade . Deposit just £30 into your Capital Spreads account to open a £1 Rolling Daily UK 100 trade or 3% on UK 100 equities and 5% on UK Mid 250 and US equities.
Limit your Risk
At Capital Spreads we want to help minimise the risks of trading . That’s why every trade has a stop loss automatically applied to it, giving you protection if prices move against you. However, please note that these stops are not guaranteed which means that we will fill you at your requested stop level, unless the market gaps.
We also offer guaranteed stops which will protect you against market gaps and there is a premium for this extra protection (see the Market Information).
Capital Spreads now offer trailing stops. Trailing stops are a risk management tool that allow you to manage your risk without restricting your potential profit.
Trailing stops help you to secure your gains as the market moves in your favour, giving you added flexibility as they will automatically track your profitable positions so that you don't have to continuously monitor your position and move your stop manually.
You can place a trailing stop on the deal ticket when you place a trade.
