As your Forex company, Hantec Markets endeavour to provide you with the most competitive spreads. The low Forex spread and CFD spread we publish is a targeted spread and may vary according to market conditions and liquidity. Please note that during volatile market conditions and periods of low liquidity, and around economic data releases, spreads may increase momentarily on affected currency pairs. Volatile market conditions can result in prices gapping, which may prevent the execution of the following orders (sell stop, buy stop, stop loss) at the requested stop price. We strive to execute all stop orders at the requested price, market conditions permitting.
