CFD and Spread Betting

Does any one know what is the difference between Spread Betting and CFD's ? I heard that CFD's are not allowed to UK clients as well - and the Brokers offer them CFD's as in Spread Betting Account ?

Re: CFD and Spread Betting

Spread betting and CFDs are very much identical products. Spread bets are mainly for UK residents where gains from spread betting are tax free. The rest of the world do CFDs - gains are taxable but you can also offset losses.

Re: CFD and Spread Betting

A CFD is an agreement between an investor and a broker to exchange the difference between the value of an underlying asset a share, commodity or stock market index. spread betting is not a method of trading assets, per se, but it does, nevertheless, allow an investor to gamble on the movement of a stock, index, etc. without owning an underlying share.
