Learn Spread Betting

Speculate on the prices of markets rising and falling

Spread betting is an alternative method of trading financial markets. Instead of buying shares on the hope that a stock will go up, you can speculate on the price of an equity, index, commodity or currency going up or down. What is more, you can spread bet on margin without the high initial capital output and expensive commissions associated with traditional share trading.

Spread Co’s spread betting account allows you to trade a range of financial markets, on margin, with several great benefits:

  • Tight, fixed spreads with inclusive commissions
  • 0% financing on short equity and index positions and low financing costs
  • Free from Capital Gains Tax and Stamp Duty*

  • Robust trading platforms, with live price and advanced charting

  • Dedicated Relationship manager, standard for all clients

*Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and tax laws can change or may differ in a jurisdiction other than the UK.

The sections below have all the information you need to start spread betting with Spread Co, including several trading examples.  

However, if you still questions, or would like more information, then please do not hesitate to contact our Client Services team, who will be happy to help. Existing Spread Co clients can also take advantage of our relationship management service, where you will receive one-to-one assistance on every aspect of your trading experience.
