Our liquidity providers have allowed us to stream the best bid and ask prices in all our trading instruments, while our technology partners help us translate this advantage by ensuring best execution of investor orders at all times. By keeping spreads as low and predictable as possible, our investors are able to manage their trading costs and risks as efficiently as possible.
Time of Day Trading
The time of day influences forex spreads, so it can be useful factoring this into your strategy.
During your major market trading sessions – London, New York, Sydney, and Tokyo – forex spreads are normally at their lowest due to the high volume being traded.
UM Capitals traders could trade during these times to take advantage of narrower spreads. When the London and New York sessions overlap, spreads can become even narrower.
Fixed or Variable Spreads?
Our VIP account types feature variable spreads from as low 0.0 pips. Generally, variable spreads are lower than fixed spreads. Investors can enjoy ultra-thin spreads during high liquidity periods, which will help them enhance their profitability as well as reduce their costs.
The UM Capitals Fixed Account features fixed spreads on all assets at all times. Although slightly higher than variable spreads, fixed spreads allow investors to trade with certainty even during certain high volatility periods, such as the release of economic news and events.
