Advantages of Spread Betting
There are many advantages to spreadbetting
over traditional share dealing
All profits made from financial spread betting
are (at the time of writing) free of income tax, betting levy and UK capital gains tax.
As you are trading on the movement of an instrument (such as a share price
) rather than physically buying that instrument you can just as easily sell as buy that instrument - e.g. you could profit from a share price falling. This is called 'going short
', or 'shorting
' a stock.
This has the advantage that you can profit in a falling market.
You only usually need to allocate a small proportion of the value of your position to carry out a trade, so in effect you are able to magnify your return on investment.
Warning: Spread Bets carry a very high level of risk to your capital, so you should only speculate with money you can afford to lose. Prices can move rapidly against your interests and the resulting losses may require further payments to be made. Spread Betting may not be suitable for all customers, so ensure you fully understand the risks involved and seek independent advice if necessary. Tax laws can change.
