*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. 

1Typical spreads reflect our pricing consistency throughout a 24-hour period, as an average over five days. Unlike some other CFD providers, during normal market conditions our typical spreads are much closer to our minimums. This is why we encourage our clients to also consider the typical spread of a product.

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.
