Using zero spreads in currency trading

A zero spreads account offers minimal or zero spreads between the bid and ask price. This means that traders get direct access to institutional pricing without any added mark-up by the broker. The only charge involved is a small commission.

Traders often choose this type of account for their currency trading not only as a low-cost option, but also because it allows them to calculate their costs more precisely in advance. At ThinkMarkets, you have the option to hold both a Standard and a ThinkZero account and even transfer funds between the accounts. Give yourself the zero spreads advantage. Try ThinkZero today!
