What is spread betting?

Spread betting allows you to speculate on the direction a financial market will move in. You place a ‘bet’ on whether the market will rise or fall. If you’re right you can make a profit, if you’re wrong you’ll make a loss.

Back to top

Warning: Spread bets and CFDs are leveraged products and can result in losses that exceed deposits. The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account, a stocks and shares ISA or a SIPP can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in. Please ensure you fully understand the risks and take care to manage your exposure.
