Spread Betting Guide


Spread betting guide is my beginners guide to spread betting. It’s unique in that it has been written by a spread betting beginner. Here I aim to explain how spread betting works and what is involved in the wide world of financial spread betting. I personally prefer spread betting over regular stock trading for many reasons but mostly because there is no tax what to pay on any money that you make.


I have split my beginners guide into several sections to make it easier to read. Think of it as an online book. You can start at the beginning and read it through to the end or you can go to the relevant chapter you wish to read.


You will find that there are certain terms which are commonly used in spread betting and trading circles. If at any point you come across a term that you do not understand you can check the glossary of spread betting terms to help you with your understanding. If there is something you do not understand and it is not included in the glossary please contact me and I will do my best to explain it further and update the glossary accordingly.




If you find anything to be incorrect or would like to add your own chapter to my beginners guide feel free to contact me.

I hope you enjoy my guide.


“May the markets be with you!”
