Guide To Financial Spread Betting

By Nigel Howell

On Tuesday of this week we had to endure another budget in the UK. It was the first one from the coalition government and it was an emergency one. One of the key things in there for investors and traders was the increase in capital gains tax.

This will hit seasoned traders quite hard as they are likely to make profits well in excess of the threshold allowance. This is not something that concerns me too much as I do my trading through financial spread betting.

This is not the only advantage of financial spread betting. Another is one that you could’ve take advantage of yesterday’s falling markets as well. The markets don’t trade up all the time and yesterday was no exception. You could have taken a short position and taken advantage of the declines.

While the stock markets were falling there was another market that was rising. The currency market and the pound started to show some strength. If you had wanted to you could have closed your short position on the stock market and moved the money into the pound. With financial spread betting you can do all of that from the same account.

People want to invest for their futures. Looking at yesterday you would be surprised if there was any money left to support people in their old age. The problem is that people say they don’t have enough money to invest. That is not a problem with financial spread betting, a couple of hundred pounds is all you need.

Just before you disappear and open an account please be aware that there are risks involved. Investments can fall in value and trading this way involves leverage so you can lose a lot of money.

Yesterday confirmed to me something I already knew really. Not that the UK economy was in trouble but that financial spread betting is the best way for me to get the most out of my trading.

Nigel has traded and invested using financial spread betting for a long time. If you would like to know more go to his blog. You will also learn how to select from all the spread betting companies there are available to you.
