Spread betting is a tax-efficient way of speculating on the price movements of thousands of global financial instruments, including forex, shares, indices, commodities and more. Spread betting is one of the most common ways to trade on price action over several asset classes in the UK and Ireland. Spread betters can trade in both directions by opening a buy or sell position, and trade with leverage, which provides greater exposure to the markets.
However, leverage can also present risks when the markets are volatile. If the market goes against your bet, you could risk making equal losses on your account. Read more about the risks of spread betting before you get started. Spread betting also comes with extra costs including overnight fees, GSLO premiums and spread charges.
With spread betting, you can diversify your portfolio through leveraged trading on a wide variety of indices, forex pairs, commodities, shares, share baskets, ETFs and treasuries.
