The spread is our charge for executing your trade. It’s the difference between the buy and sell price, which we wrap around the underlying market price.
|Market||Spread for futures||Spread for undated markets|
|OIL - US CRUDE||6||2.8|
|OIL - BRENT CRUDE||6||2.8|
|SPOT SILVER (5000OZ)||3||2|
Spreads are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions. Our dealing spreads may change to reflect the available liquidity during different times of day. Our normal spread is shown in the table.
The charge will also vary depending on whether you trade futures or our undated contracts. Futures have a wider spread, but no overnight funding charges – so are more cost-effective for longer-term trades. Learn more about our spreads
CFDs are leveraged products, which means you can gain full exposure for the fraction of the cost. The deposit you pay to open a position is called margin. Although it’s not an additional cost to you, it can make a big difference to the affordability of your trade.
Remember, leverage can magnify your losses, as well as magnify any profits.
|OIL - US CRUDE||1.5%|
|OIL - BRENT CRUDE||1.5%|
|SPOT SILVER (5000OZ)||2.0%|
