    Spread Betting

    Spread betting allows you to trade on the price movements on over 12,000 spread betting markets including indices, shares, currencies, commodities and more.

    As a derivatives product, there is potential to profit from a market irrespective of whether it is rising or falling.

    If you go long (buy); your profits will rise in line with any increase in that price. If you go short (sell), your profits will rise in line with any fall.

    Similarly, if you go long on the price and the underlying stock price falls, you will incur losses.

    CFD Trading

    CFD trading is the act of exchanging the difference between the opening and closing price of a Contract for Difference (CFD), which is an agreement between two parties.

    Similar to spread betting, CFD trading is a derivatives product, and as such, traders can speculate on the price movements of over 12,000 financial markets, regardless of whether their chosen market is rising or falling.

    You can go short (sell), allowing you to profit from falling prices, or hedge your portfolio; offsetting any potential loss in value of your physical investments.

    Forex Trading

    Forex Trading is the exchange of one currency for another at an agreed exchange price on the over-the-counter (OTC) market.

    As the world’s most traded market, foreign exchange – commonly known as Forex or FX – is also the world’s most traded; with an average turnover in excess of US$4 trillion per day.

    Currency values rise (appreciate) and fall (depreciate) against each other due to a number of factors such as economics and geopolitics. Forex traders aim to profit from these changes in the value of one currency against another by speculating on which way forex prices are likely to turn in the future.

    Unlike many financial markets, the forex market has no physical location or central exchange and trades 24-hours a day through a global network of businesses, banks and individuals.

    This means that currency prices are constantly fluctuating in value against each other, offering multiple trading opportunities to those choosing to trade forex.
