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. If it moves in the opposite direction you will make a loss.

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

Frequently asked questions

What can I do on the spread betting demo account ?


The demo account is there to make you comfortable using the platform and provide a realistic trading experience. The demo trading account allows you to trade CFDs and Spread bets with access to over 17,000 markets to practice on, including shares, indices, FX, commodities, and cryptocurrencies.




What is important to remember with a spread betting demo account ?


There are circumstances that we just can’t recreate for you. We can however from our experience, try to prepare you for them. With the demo account you have no emotional commitment or real financial consequences for your actions, and this can lead to over trading. You should try and replicate your demo trading plans as closely as possible to your real trading plans. For example, trading size, exposure, and trading instruments. You start with balance of £10,000, however more virtual funds can be added. Practise placing trades and closing trades, so that when you see an opportunity on the live platform, you can execute those trades even when the pressure of trading is high.




How do I move from a spread betting demo to a live account ?


From the platform you simply click the “upgrade to live account” button on the top right and complete the application.




What are the differences between a spread betting demo and live account?


A demo account provides a risk-free environment for you to try our web trading platforms. While much of the functionality of the live platform features in the demo, there are key differences to be aware of, including (but not limited to): Trades made through the demo account will not be subject to slippage, interest and dividend adjustments, or out of hours price movements. Trades may be rejected if you have insufficient funds to open them, but, unlike on a live account, will never be rejected on the grounds of size or price. You will not be charged for chart packages on a demo account. Trades will not be closed if you have insufficient funds to cover margin and running losses, which can happen on a live account. This is by no means an exhaustive list, therefore before opening a live account we recommend you read the information available on our website as well as the Customer Agreement to ensure that you are aware of the features of a live account
