Spread trading

Financial spread trading is one of many forms of investing and betting the global financial markets, regulated by the UK’s Financial Services Authority (FSA).  From one betting account you have access to UK, European, US and Asian stocks, indices, currencies, commodities and bonds.  Via your account you have the ability to back your judgment as to whether any of our markets will rise or fall in value, similar to buying a share via a traditional stock broker in the hope that it will rise in value, so that you can sell it for a profit at a later date.
With spread betting, you can choose to bet that the market will rise, or alternatively, you can bet that it will fall. If you are correct and the market moves in your favour, you will make a profit of your stake multiplied by each point that the market moves in your favour.  If you are wrong you will make a loss of your stake multiplied by each point that the market moves against you.
With financial spread betting you do not actually own the underlying asset that you are betting because it is a derived instrument.  The prices that we provide you are derived from the underlying asset and these prices move in conjunction with that underlying asset.
As Spread trading is classed as a bet there are No Capital Gains tax, No stamp duty.
