What is spread betting?
Spread Betting is an alternative method of trading that allows traders to speculate on the movement of various financial markets, such as forex, commodities and indices. Unlike traditional share dealing or investments, spread betting allows you to take positions in instruments without actually owning the asset.
Whether you bet on upward or downward price movements, you have the potential to make a profit or loss, depending on the market movement.
Spread betting is not subject to Stamp Duty or Capital Gains Tax in the UK, which means you can keep a higher portion of your trading winnings.
With spread betting, one can open large positions with a relatively small initial deposit, multiplying potential gains and losses.
