Losses can exceed deposits
Finspreads’ revamped site allows clients to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by financial spread betting and speculate on the movement of equities, stock markets, forex and commodities on a new, easy-to-use and powerful trading platform, Advantage Web.
There are 3 types of account:
- Beginner’s accounts – these have been developed for customers with limited industry experience enabling them to start trading with stake sizes from just 10p per point.
- Standard accounts – these have a minimum stake size of only 50p per point and access to the full range of 12,000 plus markets offered.
- Limited Risk accounts – these allow customers to trade with the safety of knowing that they can’t lose more than the funds they have deposit.
Your losses are magnified in exactly the same way as your gains if the market moves against you and can result in losses exceeding your initial outlay. Ensure you fully understand the risks involved before trading.
Mobile Spread BettingMany spread bettors, particularly those in day trading and short term trading, find that they need access to their spread betting account when they’re on the go. This is where iPhone™ spread betting and mobile trading come in.
Finspreads’ mobile trading platform and spread betting iPhone app give you comprehensive, secure access to your trading platform. It also connects you with the full range of markets and order types available online, even when you’re not at your desk.
Tight SpreadsCompetitive margins and tight spreads mean cost effective spread betting. Searching for the tightest spreads and the best margins can make a considerable difference to your profits.
Spreads at Finspreads range from 2 points on major indices such as the FTSE 100, CAC and the Dax, to 3 points on currencies such as Euro/Sterling and Sterling/Dollar. The spread for Euro/Dollar is just 2 points. Finspreads also offers margin rates that let you maximise the benefits of leverage without compromising your investment potential.
Risk ManagementA key factor in successful spread betting is being able to understand and manage the risks involved. There are a number of tools available to help you do this. Finspreads, for example, offers competitive rates, stop losses and guaranteed stop losses which all contribute to well-managed spread betting.
Finspreads Spread Betting TrainingAside from trading with minimal risk, the best way of learning spread betting is by listening to the experts. Whether you choose to do this online or in person doesn’t matter, it will play an integral part in your spread betting education.
Finspreads offers many portals for you to learn spread betting in more detail. These include platform tutorials as well as free spread betting seminars at company offices.
Finspreads also offers the Trading Academy Course, which is a comprehensive spread betting education programme for new customers.
Low StakesTraders should always look for the spread betting platforms that offer the smallest minimum stake sizes.
Those new to spread betting who enrol in the Finspreads’ Trading Academy Course can start spread trading from as little as 10p per point for 8 weeks. Even once traders have completed the course, Finspreads’ minimum stake on certain markets starts from 50p per point, one of the most competitive spread betting rates available.
