Average Spreads are calculated for the 4 weeks ending on the last day of every month. Spreads can vary depending on market conditions. They can be lower during normal conditions or higher during times of increased volatility or low liquidity. When you trade with us, Trading.com is your counterparty. Your trades are matched and additional exposure above predefined thresholds is hedged with our liquidity providers at current market spreads. During volatile and illiquid conditions, our providers quote higher spreads, which in some instances, we're forced to pass on to you.
What is spread?
Forex dealers quote two prices for currency pairs. The 'bid' is the maximum price a buyer on the market is willing to pay for a pair. The 'ask' is the minimum price a seller is willing to accept.
Essentially, the 'bid' is the price you can sell the base currency at and the 'ask' is the price you can buy it at. The 'ask' is higher than the 'bid'.
The difference between the two prices is known as the 'spread'. It is the cost to trade a pair.
Let's say, you wanted to trade EURUSD, which had a 'bid' price of 1.17590 and an 'ask' price of 1.17601. The spread for this trade would be 1.1 pips.See Full Glossary
