Financial Spreads has launched a new spread betting platform that offers a wide range of improvements as well as improved pricing.
The new Financial Spreads website now offers new ‘tear-off’ functionality that lets investors split their trading screens allowing them to customise the website to their choosing. For example an investor could tear-off their Open Trading Positions, Account Transactions, Trading History and Order Book so they can all be seen at the same time.
The new tear-off functionality also lets spread bettors create as many different trade tickets as they like so that they can prepare their positions and then watch the markets move until they are ready to trade. This can be particularly useful during the volatility that we are currently experiencing.
Other new features on Financial Spreads include letting investors cherry pick which trades they close first. Traditionally, if a trader had two open positions on the same market and they wanted to close one trade then spread betting companies would force the investor to close the oldest position first. Now investors can select which positions they want to close.
There are also further improvements to the spread betting risk management controls. Clients can now place closing orders when they initially make a trade. The orders can be set to lock in a profit. They can also used to close a trade and limit a loss if the market moves in the wrong direction.
Tighter Online Spread Betting Prices
What many spread bettors will be interested in though is the new pricing. FinancialSpreads were already offering 1 point spreads on their FTSE 100 and DAX 30 Daily Rolling contracts. They have now also reduced the popular Dow Jones and Euro / US Dollar markets to 2 points and 1 point respectively.
Tight spreads are important in spread betting, tight pricing means that a market does not have to move as far before a trader can close a position for a profit.
