Spread betting is an exciting and tax free* way to benefit from the moving financial markets. You can speculate on whether you think the market will move up or down across a broad range of global instruments on the ETX Capital platform.
Spread betting is a leveraged product so it gives you more flexibility than traditional share trading, which can make it more affordable, however leverage also means there is more risk attached than other options.

Spread betting is pretty straightforward. If you think a market is set to rise you 'buy' at the top end of our quote (the offer price), or if you think the market will fall you 'sell' at the bottom of our quote (the bid price).
You can choose how much you want to bet per point movement and the more you bet per point the higher your leverage. There is a range of risk management tools available which you can use to limit losses or lock in profits.
