Frequently Asked Questions
What is financial spread betting?
Spread betting is a very simple concept and it shares many similarities with conventional trading. You 'buy' an instrument if you think its price is set to rise, or 'sell' if you think it will fall. It should be noted however that unlike share trading you will not own the shares or receive the same benefits accruing from that ownership.
