Spread betting basics

Understanding Spread Betting

With spread betting you can trade on rising and falling markets. Instead of buying or selling an actual share or futures contract, you simply make a bet per point movement in the market price.


You can now get 100% market-neutral spread betting from InterTrader Direct, via web-based platform or MT4. (This link will take you away from InterTrader.com where you can set up a separate InterTrader Direct GFSC-regulated account.)

From £50 up to £10,000 trading credit

Your trading credit is 10% of your first deposit over £500

You will need to place trade(s) with a total stake of at least double the trading credit amount (and therefore risk considerably more than the amount of trading credit), in order to convert the trading credit to cash and withdraw the funds. Excludes equity trading. New clients only. We recommend you read the Full T&Cs.

Spread betting tax benefits

For UK taxpayers, profits from spread betting are not subject to Capital Gains Tax or stamp duty. Please note that tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and may change in the future.
