Spread betting 

Spread betting enables you to take a position on the rising or falling price movements of a financial market, without needing to acquire the underlying asset.

Spread betting is a leveraged product, which means you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the position. This has the effect of magnifying profits and losses, so you could lose more than your deposit.  ​
