LONDON, October 7, 2011 -

As stock markets across the world continue to suffer in the debt crisis, City Index ( is helping financial traders take maximum advantage of the volatility by offering one point spreads on a number of key markets.

The UK 100, Wall Street, Germany 30 and France 40 all feature one-point spreads during market hours.

City Index, recently voted Best Online Spread Betting Service at the MoneyAM Finance Awards, also provides narrow spreads for margined foreign exchange trading - including one point on Euro/US Dollar and two points on Euro/Sterling and Sterling/US Dollar.

With City Index, you can speculate on price movements irrespective of whether the markets are rising or falling.If you go long (buy), your profits will rise in line with any increase in that price. If you go short (sell), your profits will rise in line with any fall. Similarly, if you go long on the price and the underlying stock price falls, you will incur losses. 

Due for release on 7th October, the September nonfarm payroll report is fast approaching. The narrow spreads offered by City Index are likely to prove attractive to traders wishing to capitalise on the volatility and spikes in major markets that typically follow the monthly announcement.
