About Spread Betting: Financial spread betting consists of speculating on the future price movements across a variety of assets, ranging from company stocks and securities to commodity prices, foreign exchange and indices. It is especially useful if a trader thinks a company's price is likely to go down in the near future as one can use spread betting to profit from any decline (go short). Additionally, trades are exempt from stamp duty and any spreadbetting winnings in the UK and Ireland (under current legislation) are totally tax-free although this works both ways; no spreadbetting losses can be used to offset tax. The betting classification means that as opposed to buying the share outright, you are simply speculating on the price movements.

Spread Betting Example: Prices usually start from £1 per point movement so let's assume a trader decides to bet £50 per point on Rank Group (RNK) when this is trading at 101p. Rank Group rallies from 101p to 120p on an upbeat trading statement, at which point the trader closes the spreadbet at 120p. The trader stands to make a £950 profit [(120p - 101p) x 50].
