Smile Spread Betting. Just Tax Cuts Or........

Most of the times I only hear this advantage of spread betting because it falls under the category of gambling and not investing.

What other advantages do u see in it?

Vegas offers a type of spread betting where the odds makers attempt to neutralize the risk reward ratio across a series of bets so that gamblers will favor the odds that help to hedge the casino's exposure.

Re: Spread Betting. Just Tax Cuts Or........

I do not know about the USA but in the UK spread betting is a good way of circumnavigating capital gains tax which in itself is a healthy margin on top of potential profits.

In regards to gambling like many of these financial products spread betting has been hijacked to some extent by the gambling industry. However in isolation it is solely a financial product that is especially worthwhile when operated through a legitimate provider such as IG or CityIndex in the UK. Then the advantages become company (and critically Spread) specific.

Just my two cents :-D
