The average spreads shown here are calculated on a daily bases. They tend to be narrower under normal market conditions. However, spreads may widen following important news announcements and governmental decisions, during political uncertainty, unexpected events leading to volatile market conditions or at the closing or opening of the financial market and on weekends when liquidity is lower.

Your trades are matched and any next exposure above predefined thresholds is hedged through our partner banks (liquidity providers) at the current market spread.
