Spread Betting for beginners
Spread betting is a popular choice for trading in the UK, due to the fact that it’s tax efficient. It allows you to bet on price movements in hundreds of financial markets, including forex and commodities. With spread betting, you never own the underlying product in question.
With spread betting, you can bet on the future movements of an underlying instrument. If you believe that instrument will rise in value, you place a buy bet. If you think it will fall, you place a sell bet.
