LONDON, October 7, 2011 -

Award-winning spread betting provider City Index ( is offering one point spreads on a range of markets traditionally affected by the nonfarm payrolls data, which is next due for release at 1:30pm (UK time) on Friday 7th October.

Joshua Raymond, Chief Market Strategist of City Index, explains the impact of the nonfarm payroll report on market activity: “Nonfarm payrolls really are one of the standout pieces of data that traders look for every month. We see huge amounts of trading activity in the immediate aftermath of nonfarm payroll figures.”

Mr. Raymond believes the volume of activity is often proportional to the difference between the payroll figures and consensus expectations beforehand. “The bigger the [difference], whether positive or negative, the bigger the increase in trading volumes we would typically see in the immediate time frame after the data is released”.

The narrow spreads offered by City Index include:

Wall Street Rolling Spread - 1 point

UK 100 Rolling Spread - 1 point

Euro/US Dollar Rolling Spread - 1 point
