Variable spread forex brokers

 

Currently, the forex market offers two types of spreads – variable (floating) and fixed. Fixed spreads  offer more certainty when trading, however they are generally wider than the variable ones: while fixed spreads are usually about 2-3 pips, floating spreads often start from 0 pips depending on the broker and the market conditions. 

 

Variable spreads are getting more and more popular with both brokers and traders – being so tight  being just one of the reasons for that – but you should keep in mind one thing: during major news releases, unexpected market events, and also during the Asia session (especially before Tokyo open), floating spreads can widen significantly – sometimes even up to 50 pips. 

 

To prevent this, some brokers like Trading 212 offer capped variable spreads. By setting a maximum spread, these brokers prevent traders from suffering big losses. 

 

Below is a list of forex brokers offering variable spreads.
