What is Spread betting ?
Spread betting is tax efficient way of trading in financial instruments such as shares, indices, forex, commodities and cryptocurrencies. You take a position based on whether you think a market will rise or fall. If the position moves in your chosen direction you will make a profit.

Spread betting is leveraged. This means when you make a trade you are only required to pay a small deposit and not the total value of the trade. This means both your profits and losses will be magnified
