When you trade CFDs
, you'll come across something called spread. These fees are important to be aware of as they affect the price of the asset you're trading. The spread is the difference between the Buy and Sell prices of a certain asset. Essentially, the asset price you see is slightly higher than its actual market value at the moment if you're buying, or lower if you're selling.
Spread fees are present on all trading platforms, and they can vary depending on what you're trading and even the time of day. This variation is influenced by market liquidity and volatility, which refers to the number of people trading that particular asset at any given time. The good news, however, is that our spreads are among the most affordable in the industry. You can check the average spread for every CFD instrument within a predefined period of time on our Contracts Specifications page
