At Spread Co we want to make CFD trading as easy as we can. So we make it simple to set up a CFD trading account and get trading.



Here’s what to do:

Step one – Open an account

It costs nothing to open an account. It’s simple to do and takes only a few minutes. We offer two types of CFD account:

Consolidated – nets positions off against each other so you can partially close a position by opening an opposing trade

Single position −  lets you simultaneously be long and short in the same market at the same time, but gives you the option to net open positions
