LONDON, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- New and established traders with spread betting ( http://www.worldspreads.com) company WorldSpreads, who hold a minimum of GBP5,000 in their accounts, have each saved an average of GBP6,600 in trading costs since September, thanks to WorldSpreads' unique Zero Spreads (http://www.worldspreads.com/en/Spread-Betting-with-Us/zero-spreads.aspx).
The saving equates to GBP7.80 per trade compared with the spreads charged by the market average of financial spreads.
A 'spread' is the difference between quoted and market prices. Tighter spreads meanscheaper spread betting (http://www.worldspreads.com). Spreads also generate income for the provider. In 2005, WorldSpreads was the first and only company to reduce spreads to 1 point, down from an industry average of 4 - 5 points. In September 2010, WorldSpreads was the first and still the only spread betting company to reduce the spread to zero. Today the industry average is still around 2 points.
Says WorldSpreads Group CEO and founder Conor Foley: "Frequent traders still stuck with our competitors are wasting thousands of pounds a year.
"Zero Spreads has been a risk worth taking. We said this would be no introductory offer, timed promotion or loss leader and our established and new customers have taken us at our word. Together, we have set the cost of intra-day spread betting to zero. "
