    I’ve used Capital Spreads for 2 years now but I am about to move. One market I’ve been tracking and trading for years now is the FTSE250 but in March 2016 they just removed it from their platform with no warning whatsoever. There in my watchlist in the morning and then gone in the afternoon – appalling way to treat customers! Also, if you look carefully (and I do!) there is often several days data missing from the charts making Moving Averages, RSI’s, Stochastics and many other indicators wrong. Yesterday (31/3/16) it was EUR-JPY and still not fixed. Today (1/4/16) Germany Rolling 30. Totally unreliable for trading with. I’ve had enough – goodbye LCG!

    This is where my spread betting started. The low deposit and lowest spreads made Capital Spreads the best beginners option. I have moved some funds to GKFX, though I did not enjoy the day to day with them.

    Whether or not I will venture onwards once I have been trading for longer I could not say.

    For now I am more than happy with Capital Spreads and will be a customer for a while to come.

    Thanks

    I use Capital Spreads for trading shares and I love them. Tight spreads and dividends are immediately credited to your account. Charting tools and supplementary tools might not be the best but I have Level 2 and Sharescope for that – for execution and tightness of spreads they are number 1 in my book.

    the capital spreads platform has improved a lot with the last release and i get a quick fill even when betting £30 or £40 a point in FTSE / Dax. there is still however a problem in that the platform tends to have problems when major figures come out (especially the USA)

    I have been with capital spreads for over 2 years. The platform is intuitive and easy to understand. There’s no streaming news, charts are good, and stable, but allow only a few indicators (enough for me). Spreads are tight (1pt FTSE, 1pt Dax, competitive on most other products) and margins ok. However, rejection of prices can sometimes be a problem and I wish their staff would give more personalised replies to e-mails.

    I use Capital Spreads and IG Index at the moment; Capital for stocks and IG for just about everything else. Capital have very tight spreads but do tend to freeze sometimes. They also tent to re-quote. IG – have larger spreads (not much) but I have NEVER had a freeze or a request for a requote. With both of these providers ALL related orders are cancelled if you close your positions, this is important to me.

    Capital Spreads also don’t have this silly sell-at-night and buy-again-in-the-morning line item stuff on their rolling bets the way some other do, and on one’s open positions page one’s exact original average cost is posted along side current price and actual p/l…so you know immediately where you stand on each open position and you don’t need side notes on your blotter or an abacus on yer desk to know whether a given position is in profit, loss or break even.
