what is spread betting?

  • Trading Contract For Differences (CFDs) and financial spread betting lets you speculate on whether an investment's price will rise or fall
  • You can trade global shares, currencies, indices and commodities
  • When spread betting, the amount you bet for each point of price movement is your stake
  • When trading with CFDs, you buy or sell a number of units or a monetary amount of CFDs in an investment, similar to trading equities, except you do not own the underlying asset
