Tight Forex Spreads

  • We know that one of the most important aspects of forex trading is spreads. That’s why at City Index we are dedicated to offering you the tightest spreads possible from just 0.5 pts.

    Our Forex Spreads

    We want to offer our FX traders the tightest possible FX spreads around the clock. We believe that the best way to offer tight FX spreads is by offering variable spreads. That's why we offer tight variable spreads for the most popular traded currency pairs such as AUD/USD, EUR/USD and USD/JPY.

    Ease of Mind

    Tight variable spreads for our range of FX pairs mean that our clients can trade with peace of mind, knowing that even in the most volatile market conditions, where spreads can widen excessively, they can continue to enjoy the same spreads. Equally, traders of minor or exotic FX pairs can trade with the knowledge that for these specific pairs, our forex spreads will be capped at specific levels, even during periods of low market liquidity.

    Price Improvement Technology

    Slippage is common in the forex markets, particularly when prices are moving quickly. One of the downsides of slippage is that if a price moves by the time your trade is placed into the market, your execution price could be slightly worse.

    What is Slippage? The difference between the expected opening price of a trade and the price at which the trade actually executes is called slippage. Slippage, also known as market gapping, often occurs during periods of higher volatility, when market orders are used, and also when large orders are executed when there may not be enough interest at the desired price level to maintain the expected price of trade.

    Making the Most of Slippage: At City Index, our Price Improvement Technology makes it possible for us to give you a better price, where possible, so you can use slippage to your advantage whenever it occurs. Price Improvement Technology enables us to execute trades at better levels if prices move in your favour by the time your trade is placed.

    For example, if the EUR/USD bid or sell price is 1.3235 when the trade is executed and the price improves to 1.3236 (one pip improvement), the trade will be executed at the improved price of 1.3236 to give you another distinct advantage over other retail forex traders.
