Caters for the masses. If you’re looking for a spread betting company who is competitive on all fronts, from tight spreads, to generous margins, to reliable and accessible trading platforms, but still backed by a highly regarded listed group, then London Capital Group’s Capital Spreads is an excellent solution.
As such, it is used by all types of spread bettors, form casual punters to pro scalpers, although if you are scalping, you can be expected to be put onto Dealer referral pretty quickly, so we’d actually recommend ProSpreads as an alternative.
