IG FX Binaries

Anyone else noticed they doubled the spread on these recently.

Was 2 to 4 pts spread, now 4 - 8 pts.

Also intraday extreme end price spreads were 0-2 and 98-10. Now they stop at 0-4 and 96-100.

These are the largest spreads of the all the markets they quote, the spreads of Crude oil Binaries are even less than FX binaries now.

What a joke, IG make 10 million+ a year profits on binaries and they still want even more...

I've traded on IG for a year or so, but not currently. The daily Euro-convention binaries have been 4-wide during the time I've traded. You're stating that there are 8-wide markets on the major-FX binaries?

Wow, I should have logged into IG before posting. 55x62 for the EURUSD atm daily ladder.

I also use Ig for futures and have used them for years. I am happy with them so far, but don't scalp with them and don't do forex with them.
