Target Spreads

The Spread is the difference between the ‘bid price’ and the ‘offer price’. The bid price is where the investor can sell a position and the offer price is where the investor can buy a position. Given that markets are all about supply and demand, the more liquid and active a product is, the smaller the spread between the buying and selling price thus, making it a more competitive option for traders.

Competitive Swaps

Swaps, also known as rollovers, are interest rate amounts charged or earned for holding a buy or sell position overnight. The calculation takes into consideration the interest rate differential between two currencies (each currency has its own interest rate). Swaps are also applicable on Currencies and vary for several reasons, including overnight interest rates. Swap free accounts are also available..
