Definition of 'Spread Betting'

A type of speculation that involves taking a bet on the price movement of a security. A spread betting company quotes two prices, the bid and offer price (also called the spread), and investors bet whether the price of the underlying stock will be lower than the bid or higher than the offer. The investor does not own the underlying stock in spread betting, they simply speculate on the price movement of the stock.

Thanks a lot for the definition.

In which country these spread betting are popular ? Isn't it illegal because you are simply betting.

I guess it is allowed in some countries only.
