Both spread betting and CFD trading allow you to go long or short of financial markets while putting down a margin deposit rather than the full value of your position. Intertrader offers both spread betting and CFDs with market-neutral execution. With a spread betting account you bet a certain amount per point movement in the market price, and make or lose that amount for each point the price rises or falls. All bets are made in your account currency regardless of the currency of the underlying market. (More on spread betting.) With a CFD trading account you buy or sell a certain number of contracts which mirror the risk/return of making a physical trade in the market. You trade in the currency of the underlying market and your profit or loss is converted into your account currency if necessary. (More on CFD trading.) Spread betting is exempt from UK capital gains tax and stamp duty, but you should note that this product is only available for UK clients. CFDs are subject to UK capital gains tax but are exempt from stamp duty, and you can offset any losses against other income in the tax year. You should always remember, however, that tax laws are subject to change.
