Spread Betting is a form of derivatives trading that allows traders to speculate on the price movement of various financial markets, such as forex, commodities and indices. It has grown to become increasingly popular with UK traders due to its exemption from both stamp duty and capital gains tax* in the UK.
*Spread bets are currently free from capital gains tax in the UK. However, tax laws may change, may vary by jurisdiction and may depend on the personal circumstances of each client. We do not provide tax advice.
