What are Spreads?

In trading, the spread illustrates the gap between the buy (bid) and the sell (ask) price of a financial asset. Spread is one of the key costs involved in Forex and CFD trading – the tighter the spread is, the better value you’re getting as a trader. A spread is how brokers make money from each trade. It’s essentially a commission that replaces brokerage fees and charges.

Essentially, the tighter the spread, the lower the cost of trading. The wider the spread, the higher it costs.

For example, let’s say EURUSD is quoted with a buy price of 1.0984 and a sell price of 1.0983. The spread can be calculated by subtracting 1.0983 from 1.0984 – giving a total spread of 0.0001 or 1 pip.

At Eightcap, prices are quoted up to 5 decimal points.
