We set our own CFD prices using various sources, which may differ from the ones used by IG. The prices may vary depending on a broker, the nature of an asset and market and broker’s pricing methodology. Spreads on companies which charge commissions, which Capital.com does not, might be tighter due to this.
When you check prices from different sources, it is important to do the following:
- compare the same markets in the same currency and in the same market type (spot/futures/options etc). Keep in mind that Capital.com mainly offers instruments that have spot prices;
- be aware of the differences in bid/ask and mid prices. Our handy guides have the essential details about mid prices and bid/ask;
- check any possible delay on third-party prices (unlike Capital.com, most free websites do not have fully live prices).
