​​*A minimum spread is the lowest spread that will be shown on the given product. If the underlying market spread widens throughout the trading day, or you are trading out of hours, the platform spread may also widen. The spreads shown are for the first price available for the average market trade/bet sizes in the relevant product. The spread will widen for larger trade/bet sizes, see our platform for more information.

This data is provided for general information only and may not be current. Please refer to the product overview area of our trading platform for real-time information on the spreads, margin rates, commission (as applicable) and trading hours of a particular product.

​Please note that the change in price that results in a P&L change equal to your stake size is represented by the last large digit in the price shown on the platform.​

At the end of each trading day  (5pm New York time), positions held in your account may be subject to a holding cost. The holding cost can be positive or negative depending on the direction of your position and the applicable holding rate. Historical holding rates, expressed as an annual percentage rate, are visible on our platform within the overview section of each product. View further details about our CFD trading holding costs.​
