How does spread betting work ?

Spread betting allows you to speculate tax free on thousands of global instruments including Forex, Indices, Shares, Commodities, Bitcoin and Bonds.

With spread betting you decide which direction a market will move. Then you place a bet based on the amount you want to make or lose per point movement. If the market moves in your chosen direction you will make a profit and if it moves in the opposite direction you will make a loss.

The profit is calculated by multiplying the amount of points moved by the amount that you bet per point movement.

How do CFDs work ? 

CFDs allow you speculate on a huge range of markets including Forex, Indices, Shares, Commodities, Cryptocurrencies and Bonds.

With CFDs you buy or sell a specific amount of units or contracts.

If your chosen market moves in your favor you will make a profit. If it moves in the opposite direction you will make a loss

Spread bets and CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 76% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading spread bets and CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how spread bets and CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. Professional clients can lose more than they deposit.

 

All trading involves risk.

The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account, a stocks and shares ISA or a SIPP can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
