Spreads on crypto

Question

Hello,

Can you please review your spreads on crypto, given the current prices levels. For instance, the spread on ripple is now at 8% to buy and sell this instrument.

Looking forward to it. An 8% spread on ripple round trip makes this untradable for instance.

Hi @mjr6 - Spreads on crypto were lowered a couple of days ago - I just wanted to confirm that on Community. Cheers :)

There is about a 50 point spread on Bitcoin and Ether is around 10 points.

The way the crypto spreads are structured are to give the advantage to IG. The key is to wait for the big trends to materialise and when they do then trade otherwise wait on the sidelines patiently.

The positive news is that at least IG have lowered the spreads on cryptos from where they were. It is a fine balance for IG to give them the advantage but at the same time not discouraging any traders in using IG to trade cryptos. 

Hey - the spread is actually structured to give you the best avaliable price and the tightest possible difference between the buy and sell. There is no way we would be able to offer this asset with a tighter spread - the main reason for this one is a complete lack of liquidity when dealing in size on a leverage account. You can read more on that via the mega thread here under section three - FAQ's >> https://community.ig.com/forums/topic/2300-cryptocurrency-mega-thread/

    • this probably should have been ignored, but IMHO it was a new low.  obviously jlz tried to help someone here, and referred to others to add emphasis to a point.  I'm writing this because I actually asked for support in my earlier response, and I'm very pleased I'm not the only one who reacted to this post thoughtfully, so I think it would be pretty weak if I didn't speak up here. That may make me look ridiculous, and like my tongue is now travelling through a bunch of cracks, but I don't give a **** (like I think you would not either).    I'm actually surprised that you @dmedin  left it to this statement - usually you're significantly more effective in warning people of the hazards we face as retail punters IMHO - I think you definitely had stronger moments. you know what I would find useful:  having a separate, focused thread for insults  - I'm sure by now the respective targets wouldn't mind (to not again say not give a ****), and other discussions could become - let's say "leaner". I genuinely think I got a lot of valuable insights from many of your posts here, and I highly appreciate the honest feedback, and I also believe you have good intentions. I don't know about any history between you, jlz, THT, and Caseynotes.  I further think you play an important role here in this forum and I look forward to more productive discussions with you. But the post quoted above was a new low.
