GBPJPY fluctuating spread

Recommended Posts

Why does the spread of GBPJPY always keep fluctuating between 2.5pips and 3.2pips in a matter of microseconds?

Faith, Peregrin Took - why quibble o'er pennies?

Just gaze with longing admiration at that big huge erection - MMMM!

Hi, yes IG uses a variable spread system rather than a fixed spread so if there is higher than normal volatility the spread can fluctuate even in the very short term and especially on a spike.

    • *parp!*  Ooh what's that smell!  
    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
