Advantages of Spread Betting

Profit when prices rise or fall

Spread betting is different from traditional investing in a number of key ways:



Go short in falling markets

No need to wait on markets to rise to make a profit. With spread betting you can speculate on rising and falling prices. So you can make gains in bull and bear markets.


No hidden costs

When you trade with Spread Co there are no hidden charges that can eat into your profits. We don’t implement any charges for inactive accounts.


Manage your risk

Our spread betting risk management features — stop loss, limit orders and guaranteed stop orders — help you to manage risks, limit losses and lock in profits.


Trade on margin

With spread betting, you are not buying or selling the actual product, you are simply betting on the price movement. You only need to put up a small fraction of the trade value to open that position. 


Trade global markets

Spread bet with Spread Co and you’ll have access to a wide range of investment markets; including equities, indices, currencies and commodities such as gold and crude oil.


24 hour access

*Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances.
