Access to a huge range of markets from one single trading account enables a Core Spreads CFD trader to centralise their speculative and hedging activity. Running your own account from one platform, without having to instruct a broker to act on your behalf, whether to open or close a trade or being able to monitor the market movements in real time, is a major advantage of having a Core Spreads CFD account.
