CFD and Spread Betting

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
