Why trade forex with Spread Co?

We have a decade of experience providing online fx trading. Our technology gives traders access to the world’s forex markets.


What is forex trading?

Foreign exchange trading (forex or fx trading) is the largest and most actively-traded financial market in the world, worth an estimated $4 trillion in daily turnover. Forex trading isn’t about buying or selling currencies, it’s about betting on a change in the exchange rate between two currencies – whether it will rise or fall.
When you trade forex you’re making a bet that one currency will rise or fall against another. When you ‘buy’ GBP/USD you’ll gain if sterling strengthens against the US dollar. So if the pound was worth $1.50 and this rises to $1.52 when you sell, you’ll make a profit. If it falls to $1.48 you’ll make a loss.
To trade forex successfully you need to act fast, and anticipate changes in exchange rates. Spread Co gives you the tools to do just that.

Advantages of forex trading

Unlike share trading, forex markets trade round-the-clock, from 10pm on Sundays until 10pm on Fridays. With our trading platforms, you’ll always be ready to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
When you buy shares, you can only make a profit if the price has gone up when you sell them. Forex isn’t just for bull markets. With forex you can make a gain at any time by correctly predicting which way the exchange rate between two currencies will move – up or down.

Diversify your portfolio
