Just like traditional investing, there are two prices for a spread bet - the offer buy price and the bid sell price. The difference between the two is called the spread. At Spread Co we try to keep our spreads among the lowest in the market. This means that less of your spread betting stake is eaten up by charges. The trouble with traditional investing is that you can only make money when prices rise. When they fall, you make a loss. Spread betting is different. You can make gains when prices rise or fall.
All you have to do is correctly predict which way the markets will go. One of the major advantages of spread betting is the low cost of entry. When you place a spread bet you only have to pay a fraction of the value of an asset, not its full price. This can be as low as 0. There are four key charges you need to be aware of:. You can also keep up to date with our regular insights and call our help team when you need support.
