Forex Maximum Spread


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to see what the maximum spreads are on forex CFDs, but haven't found that information on any IG website yet. I can find e.g. minimum spread, but the arguably most important is the maximum during e.g. 5pm EST etc. From my demo account I have seen some pairs spike to 35, or even 50-60, but is there not a chart/overview of historical spreads somewhere?

Regards.

Hello,

I find the easiest way to see a Current spread for any IG market is to open the IG Markets Web platform, click search and type the market type, then open the deal Tab and the current spread is displayed automatically. ¬†ūüėÄ

That's correct, with a variable spread system you need to keep an eye out. It all depends on the current availability of prices from liquidity providers and a spike in the spread may last just a couple of seconds or a raised spread may be longer for planned news events etc. The advantages of the variable system are a lower spread overall.

I am asking about maximums, especially during 5pm est, not where the live spread is, you can't practically monitor spreads by glancing at live data.

Obviously these things vary by liquidity etc., and some brokers cap maximum spreads during 5pm EST on some pairs, even if they are not capped, there are often consistent maximums, so this data is extremely important.

I assume by the lack of replies IG does not publish historical spread data at all, like e.g, Oanda does (https://www1.oanda.com/forex-trading/markets/recent), and Saxobank does (https://www.home.saxo/nb-no/rates-and-conditions/forex/classic-historical-fx-spreads).


If that is the case, is there some spread monitor tool that can be used on the desktop or web platform?

Thanks.

    • AUD/USD appears vulnerable as the US dollar remains strong; the move lower arrives just before a crucial RBA meeting that could add volatility and if bearish momentum continues to unfold, how low will AUD/USD go? Source: Bloomberg ¬† Forex¬†Shares¬†AUD/USD¬†Market sentiment¬†Price¬†Investment ¬† The Australian dollar made a two-year low to end last week as bearish momentum appeared to pick up steam. A bearish triple moving average (TMA) formation requires the price to be below the short term simple moving average (SMA), the latter to be below the medium term SMA and the medium term SMA to be below the long term SMA. All SMAs also need to have a negative gradient. Looking at the 10-, 21-, 55-, 100- and 200-day SMAs, AUD/USD met the criteria for a bearish TMA in the middle of June. It may signal that bearish momentum could continue to evolve. If the price moves back above the 10-day SMA, the TMA will no longer be valid. Support may lie at Friday‚Äôs low of 0.6764. The previous lows 0.6829 and 0.6850 might offer break point resistance. The RBA monetary policy committee meeting on Tuesday might provide event risk volatility opportunities. The market is anticipating a 50 basis points (bps) hike and anything other than that could see a significant move. If they hike by less than 50 bps it could see the support levels tested and a break below them might see a continued run lower. Conversely, a hike by more than 50 bps might see resistance levels challenged and if they are overcome, we may have seen the low for the medium-term last week. AUD/USD daily chart Source: TradingView AUD/USD weekly chart Last week‚Äôs push lower stopped just above the 50% Fibonacci Retracement level at 0.6758 to make a low of 0.6764. This Fibonacci level may continue to provide support. The bigger picture highlights that since the February 2021 peak of 0.8007, the price has made lower highs and lower lows, revealing descending trend lines above and below the price. The lower trend line that currently dissects the price at 0.6748 is under threat and a break there could indicate further bearishness is unfolding.

    • Golden Finance reports that BTC is approaching a "very favorable risk-reward price area" according to crypto analyst Rekt Capital on social media, who believes "BTC will be different in this cycle as its price has recently been hovering below its 200-week moving average (MA), a bottoming indicator that could face sell-side exhaustion. BTC is reaching historically oversold levels, and this extreme oversoldness will coincide with investment opportunities."
