The Capital Spreads web trading platform gives a totally new perspective on spread betting and has been launched with the purpose of providing better value spread prices and speed of transaction. You can spread bet on over 3000 products including: major indices, foreign exchange, commodities, bonds, interest rates and individual shares. Also, if a client cannot find a product, it can generally be added on request. Our systems will allow you to enter stop loss orders, limit orders and our unique computer generated customer account management system (CAMS) will control the margin on your account so that (barring Force Majeure situations) any losses will be limited to the original deposit made when you open your position.
Our trading platform also offers a full real-time position valuation and margin availability service plus free real-time charting using our own market derived prices in all the products offered by the company.
We concentrate on the major stocks and indices that matter to you and combined with our low cost structure and ability to hedge with our own in house broking arm means that we are able to offer spreads inside those of our competitors.
