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.
It is a Spread Betting account with Spread Co’s top selected financial markets, with a zero spread (terms and conditions apply).
You are only able to have one Spread Betting account with Spread Co. You can choose from either a standard account type or a Spread Free account (Basic or Bronze)
Yes, each spread free account has a daily trade limit, maximum position limit per instrument and a max bet size per trade.
The daily limit resets at 10 pm London time and applies up to 10 pm the following day.
The Basic account is completely free and has no inactivity fees. The Bronze Spread Free account is charged at £10 per Calendar Month, which is deducted from the account up front. If you join within the month then the fee will be calculated on a pro-rata basis and deducted upfront.
In this scenario, you would only pay for the period left within the calendar month. For example, if there were only 10 days remaining, only a 10-day portion of the monthly fee would apply.
In the event an account is switched from Bronze to basic, then the fee you have already paid will not be refunded.
Unfortunately not. The daily trade allowance is allocated per business day and cannot be rolled over.
Yes, all live Spread Betting accounts are eligible for interest as long as trading resources are between £10,000 and £20,000, subject to the 2% interest terms and conditions.
At times of significant economic data release or changes in market trading conditions due to abnormal events, spreads may become chargeable for up to 2 minutes around the data points.
This Account Type does not permit scalping i.e. opening and closing a position within 3 minutes (this includes all trades, buy/sell or sell/buy regardless of any trading strategy). Consequently we have the right to withhold this offer when we have reasonable belief that there has been co-operation, collusion or organisation of trades from the same source, or if we have reasonable belief that the offer is being abused in any way.
Like all forms of investing you have to pay charges, that’s why it makes sense to trade with a company that offers competitive spread betting charges. There are four key charges you need to be aware of
