Profit when prices rise or fall

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.
