Learn how to spread bet shares with this step-by-step guide - I'll explain not only how you can take a position on a market that's falling, but also provide you with a comprehensive overview of spread betting and how you can access over 12,000 financial markets for only a small initial deposit.
Spread Betting with City Index
Spread betting is a popular product for traders both new and experienced as it offers entry level access into the financial markets.Spread betting with City Index enables traders to take positions on a range of markets for only a small initial deposit typically between 1% and 10% of an underlying market's value through a low margin feature. The margin feature increases their market exposure and potentially magnifies profits. Spread betting is also tax efficient; currently under UK tax laws, all profits made through a spread bet are free from UK Capital Gains tax* and Stamp Duty*, though this remains subject to change. Profit from a falling market Spread betting allows traders to go both long (buy) and short (sell) on trades - meaning those choosing to spread bet on shares can profit from a market which falls as well as rises. However, as a leveraged product; should the market move against your position it can also result in losses greater than your initial deposit, making risk management tools, such as stop loss orders, imperative to a trading plan. How to Spread Bet Shares As mentioned above, spread betting offers traders the potential to profit from a market that falls by going short on a trade and selling. For example purposes only, let's say we are looking to take a position on the future price movement of M&S shares.
