I'm checking on my side to see if this may be the case. But for the index CFD's, they are no requote CFD's. We offset the trade in real time for index trades as well.

Any update on adding indices to your spreadbetting offering with competitive spreads and margins as low as CS and others?

I've been trying to find CFD info on your website but it just says coming soon.

Hi mar.,

It's been a long time in coming, but the release of CFD's is imminent . There is a high likelihood the website www.fxcm.co.uk will be updated later this evening or on Thursday at the latest with CFD information.

The product list will be released along with the new website. For the initial launch, we will have the major indices, oil, gold and silver.

So check the website tonight (after 9pm GMT), or tomorrow.

Jason

Thanks Jason,

Will the spreadbetting side also have the major indices, oil, gold and silver?

Not initially. Probably about 6 weeks away to having it added to the spread betting accounts. CFD accounts with forex, indices, oil, gold, and silver will be released first.

Here's a list of the indices available, along with the corresponding futures contract:

The indices are located on the CFD account. It will be a couple of months before they are added to the spread betting accounts.
