LONDON, July 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Specialist investment site 'The Motley Fool' has named WorldSpreads as the most Fool-Friendly Spread Better.
Fool assessed the needs of both schools of spread betting, those in it for the short term and the long run. WorldSpreads was best suited to the needs of day traders demanding tight spreads, fast execution and low margins and investors who want to buy long and collect dividends along the way.
Winning criteria included the ability to preserve gains over long holding periods through low financing, access to the widest range of stocks - not solely the biggest indices, currencies and commodities and a one glance platform that allows traders to focus on winning strategies instead of opening and closing windows.
Fool was also looking for guaranteed stop orders for absolute risk control and trailing stop orders that 'lock in' increasing amounts of profit. WorldSpreads impressed on all counts and was placed best overall, with a special mention for offering the widest range of equities to trade, its highly intuitive interface and clarity on risk guaranteed and trailing stop orders.
Says WorldSpreads CEO Conor Foley; "The WorldSpreads team and I would like to thank Motley Fool for such an endorsement. It is always pleasing to have one's efforts recognised, but we will continue to strive for an even better service for our loyal clients."
