London based Capital Spreads is an FSA regulated broker site. The company is part of the London Capital Group. The spread betting platform has been designed to give users a fresh new perspective on spread trading. The company prides itself on being an excellent value platform, and has some of the best available margins of the entire industry.
The products available within their ‘contract for difference’ range are relatively generous and include; major indices CFDs, commodities, shares, interest rates and bonds. A selection of the vast range of commodities includes crude oil, gas oil, silver futures, copper futures, coffee and cocoa beans. With such a wide range of each market section you’ll never become complacent with the options included with your Capital CFDs account.
You can access your Capital CFDs account via their online CFD trading site or by downloading the available iPhone app to your phone. A downloadable desktop platform is currently unavailable. A major flaw of the platform availability is the lack of alternative mobile platforms. However there are a number of Windows and Android Smart phone users who use their phones for everything social and business related and would also like to share the benefit of the mobile app that has been afforded to iPhone users. Companies need to realise that Apple users only make up a marginal percent of the population and therefore their client base. Hopefully the mobile platform availability issues will be addressed in the near future.
The site, much like its sister company Capital Spreads, is visually impressive. Everything you need access to is at hand without being cluttered or confusing to the eye. The learning tools that are available are also fantastic. Once your account has been opened you can brush up on your CFD knowledge and also check out the various tips available. There are a number of handy downloads available to help you get the best out of your account too. Capital CFDs has obviously realised that the winning formula of the extremely popular Capital Spreads could be tweaked to work in the CFD market. By sticking to what they know they have produced a very accomplished site.
There is currently just one offer in place at Capital CFDs, a refer a friend scheme. Once your friend has opened their new account, deposited £250 into it, and then met a number of trade requirements you will both receive £100. All requirements put in place by Capital CFDs must be met within one month or the £100 bonus will be forfeited by both parties. This deal isn’t very straightforward and is subject to change. The bonus payment may only be used for trading purposes and cannot be withdrawn from your account. Any profits made from this bonus payment can be withdrawn, but only after a period of three months has passed.
