Spread betting enables you to take a position on the price movements of a financial market, whether it's rising or falling, without owning the underlying asset.
Spread betting is a leveraged product, which means that you will need to deposit an amount of money known as margin. The margin you will be required to deposit reflects a percentage of the full value of the position. On our platform this is referred to as the position margin.
Our award-winning spread betting platform provides access to more than 9,500 instruments. Spread bet on FX, indices, commodities, shares and treasuries – with competitive spreads from 0.7 points on EUR/USD and USD/JPY and 1-point on the UK 100 and Germany 30.
Our extensive range of risk management tools include regular, trailing and guaranteed stop-loss orders (GSLOs). These tools enable you to manage risk, helping to secure potential profits and minimise losses. Unlike other stop loss order types, for a premium, GSLOs offer 100% certainty that a trade will close at an exact price.
Depending on which products you're trading, your risk-management approach and how long you hold a position for, there's a additional charge for holding a position overnight, and/or for adding a guaranteed stop-loss order.
We offer monthly cash rebates if you spread bet in high volumes. If you meet our requirements for one asset class, such as indices, you automatically qualify for monthly rebates on FX and commodities as well. Conditions apply.
