FXDD Adds Six New Currency Pairs to Its Forex Offering

Jul 16 2013

If you have been following our news regularly, you might have noticed the trend of brokers expanding their forex and CFD offering – this has, indeed, been happening a lot lately. Liquid Markets and eToro adding new contracts for differences, easy-forex and Swissquote introducing a number of new currency pairs are just the latest examples. 

The next broker to jump on that train is FXDD. It has been over a year since it last increased the list of trading instruments it offered but the company is now catching up with six new currency pairs – four New Zealand dollar matches, and two Swiss franc ones. 
Let's take a look at the new exotic currency pairs and the spreads that we observed for them on FXDD's MT4 platform at the time of writing this article: 
- AUD/CHF – 3.4 pips
- CAD/CHF – 3.4 pips
- EUR/NZD – 6.4 pips
- GBP/NZD – 6.1 pips
- NZD/CHF – 4.9 pips
- NZD/CAD – 4.3 pips
Let's see how these compare. I have picked two other brokers at random – one with floating spreads like FXDD - OANDA, and another one with fixed spreads – Liquid Markets.
  FXDD OANDA Liquid Markets
AUD/CHF 3.4 pips 3.2 pips 4 pips
CAD/CHF 3.4 pips 3.5 pips 3.7 pips
EUR/NZD 6.4 pips 5.6 pips 5.1 pips
GBP/NZD 6.1 pips 10.1 pips 5.9 pips
NZD/CHF 4.9 pips 4.4 pips 4.4 pips
NZD/CAD 4.3 pips 3.3 pips 4.8 pips
As you can see,  for some of the currency pairs like AUD/CHF and NZD/CAD for example,  OANDA scores better, however these spreads may widen depending on market behavior. This is why I would recommend going for Liquid Markets because of the fixed spread – especially considering that I have indicated the brokers Mini MT4 account spreads, which are the highest Liquid Market offers – so if you're trading with a premium MT4 account, you'll be benefiting from even tighter spreads without worrying about unexpected market swings. Liquid Markets also offers these six exotics on the cTrader platform, where spreads floating but much, much lower.
FXDD's new exotic pairs are available not only on MT4 but also on the MTX and Swordfish platforms. 
With all the examples that I've seen these past few weeks, it's becoming more and more obvious for me that the retail forex industry is steadily aiming at offering more and more trading instruments, on more and better trading platforms, with lower and more attractive spreads – so it might not be long before each and every broker offers simply everything.
