FinancialSpreads Cut Spreads on Popular Stock Indices and Crude Oil Markets


FinancialSpreads, the London based spread betting and contracts for difference (CFD) company, has cut the spread size on four key markets.

Earlier this year, the company gave clients new trading options by adding more than 2,500 CFD markets to the FinancialSpreads platform. This also meant that clients could trade both the CFDs and spread betting markets from one account. The company has now tightened its pricing on a number of important global markets.

After the FTSE 100 and euro/dollar, the US based 'Wall Street' index is normally the most popular market with FinancialSpreads' clients. The company has now introduced tighter spreads for their most popular US stock market indices and crude oil markets.


Market New Spread‡ Old Spread
Wall Street Rolling Daily 1pt 2pts
S&P 500 Rolling Daily 0.3pts 0.4pts
Brent Crude Oil 4pts 5pts
US Crude Oil 4pts 5pts


According to Adam Jepsen, spokesman for FinancialSpreads, the new cuts have helped to reduce the cost of trading for investors.

"We already offer one point spreads on the FTSE 100 and the euro/dollar market so it's great for clients that we now offer one point spreads on the Wall Street index.

"We don't charge any commissions or broker's fees on either spread betting or CFDs. Our charges are priced into the width of the spread itself. Therefore, the tighter the spreads, the lower the cost of trading is for our clients.

"We haven't stopped with the Wall Street index though. A lot of investors trade the S&P 500 index as well as the Brent crude oil and US crude oil markets, so we've cut the spreads on those markets too"

With financial spread betting and CFD trading, tight spreads are important. A tight spread means that a market does not have to move as much before a trade can be closed for a profit.

Investors should note that even with tight spreads, spread betting and CFD trading are leveraged and therefore they still carry a high level of risk to your capital. Investors should ensure spread betting and CFD trading meet your investment objectives. Seek independent financial advice if you do not understand the risks.
