UK100 SPREAD FREE TRADING
BASIC ACCOUNT EXAMPLES

If you already trade UK100, you could be potentially making more or losing less with a Spread Co Spread Free Account.

Whilst our standard Tight and Fixed Spreads allow you to trade without worrying about factoring in variable spreads, our Spread Free account eliminates it completely.

Regardless if your strategy is to go long or short, the trading examples below show what savings could be made through Spread Free trading compared to our standard account type.
