Spread betting on forex

The trillions of dollars’ worth of global transactions taking place every day mean that price movements can happen very quickly

FX prices are influenced by a range of different factors, including interest rates, inflation, government policy, employment figures and demand for imports and exports. However, although forex is one of the most volatile markets, due to the high levels of liquidity it will often offer the tightest spreads.

We provide you with essential market data so that you can make informed dealing decisions. As an IG client, you can view real-time streaming prices and correlations, receive live Reuters news streams and get up-to-the-minute insight from our expert analysts.
