Low Liquidity / Wider Spreads

Due to lower liquidity over this holiday period spreads may be wider than normal and there may be increased volatility due to fewer liquidity providers pricing over this period. Please ensure that you maintain sufficient funds in your trading account to ensure you are not effected by these market conditions.

IC Markets support and accounts department will continue to operate as normal.
