Spread betting explained

What is spread betting?

Spread betting isn’t the same as owning shares, but it lets you speculate on changes in share prices, indices, currencies and other financial assets. Unlike traditional investing, there’s no major upfront outlay, and you can still make profits if prices or values fall.

With spread betting you make a profit, or a loss, based on the price of the asset when you opened the trade, and its price when you closed the trade.

Just like traditional investing, there are two prices for a spread bet – the offer (buy) price and the bid (sell) price. The difference between the two is called the spread. At Spread Co we try to keep our spreads among the lowest in the market. This means that less of your spread betting stake is eaten up by charges.

Features of spread betting

When you open a spread betting position on a market, you are given a ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ price either side of the underlying market price – this is known as the spread. If you think the market will rise, you open your spread bet at the ‘buy’ price. If you think it will fall, you open at the ‘sell’ price.
