Our lowest ever spreads
Our currency spreads are extremely competitive, regardless of trade size. We believe that we offer some of the most competitive spreads on currency pairs. Competitive spreads are important, because the tighter the quoted spread, the less the market has to move in your favour before your trade becomes profitable. Remember that losses can exceed your initial deposit, so ensure you understand the risks. You can compare our competitive spreads at any time via our live spread charts.
Customisable margin and no minimum trade sizes
Currency trading has never been more accessible than it is now with our new currency CFD offering. You are no longer restricted by minimum trade sizes or fixed amounts of risk with each trade.
With the customisable margin feature in our CFD accounts, you can decide just how much leverage you wish to take on up to the maximum allowed.
Extra quote precision for full transparency
With precision pricing you can expect a higher level of pricing accuracy; in some cases our prices are as precise as 1,000th of a point.
With CMC Markets, you will see the price quoted up to 5 decimal places, so there will be no rounding and no surprises. We strive to exceed your expectations by offering extra price precision over the generally accepted standard market quotations. There is complete transparency on our price. We are so confident in our pricing structure that, when you view charts for the currencies you want to trade, you will see a real-time tick data chart of our dealing spreads throughout the day.
