How does our spread betting app work?

Spread betting is a tax-efficient** way of speculating on the price movement of thousands of global financial markets, including indices, forex, commodities, shares and treasuries.

You don't buy or sell the underlying asset you wish to trade when placing a spread bet. Instead, you take a position based on whether or not you think the price of an instrument will rise or fall. Profits and losses are generated based on whether or not the market moves in your chosen direction.
