Financial Spreads: New Platform with Tighter Spreads
Financial Spreads, the London based spread betting company has launched a new platform that offers a wide range of improvements as well as tighter spreads.
FinancialSpreads.com now offers new ‘tear-off’ functionality that lets traders split their trading screens allowing them to customise the trading platform to their choosing. For example a trader could tear-off their Open Trading Positions, Trading History, Order Book and Account Transactions so they can all be seen at the same time.
The tear-off functionality also lets traders create as many different trade tickets as they like so that they can prepare their spread bets and then watch the markets move until they are ready to trade. This can be particularly useful during the volatility that the spread betting markets are currently experiencing.
Other new features on Financial Spreads include letting traders cherry pick which trades they close first. Traditionally, if an investor had two open positions on the same market and they wanted to close one trade then spread betting companies would force the investor to close the oldest position first. Now investors can select which positions they want to close.
There are also other improvements to the risk management controls. You can now place Stop Loss orders when making a trade. These orders can be set to lock in a profit but also used to close a trade and limit a loss if the market moves in the wrong direction. Note that Stop Loss orders are not guaranteed.
Spread Betting Tighter Spreads
What many spread betting account holders will be interested in though is the new pricing. Financial Spreads were already offering 1 point spreads on their FTSE and DAX Daily Rolling contracts.
They have now also reduced the popular Wall Street and Euro/Dollar Rolling Daily markets to 2 points and 1 point respectively.
Tight spreads are important in spread betting, tight pricing means that a market does not have to move as far before a trader can close a position for a profit.
Financial Spreads is based in London and is a trading name of London Capital Group which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
With the new FinancialSpreads site you can trade over 2,000 markets including a wide range of international shares, indices, forex markets, commodities, bonds and interest rates. The commission free trading service lets you speculate on whether markets will go up or down and also includes access to charts and research data.
Spread betting carries a high level of risk to your capital. You may lose more than your initial investment. It may not be suitable for all investors. Only speculate with money that you can afford to lose. Please ensure you fully understand the risks involved and seek independent financial advice where necessary.
