UK Spread Betting Brokers

The brokers above operate in the UK and offer spread betting services. They also offer CFD services.

Spread betting versus CFD trading

Spread betting and CFD (Contracts for Difference) trading are based around the movement the value of a market. CFD trading is based on contracts to exchange the difference between the value of a market at the beginning of a trade and the value at the end.

Spread betting is a speculation on the value of a market at the beginning of the trade and at the end. The difference in points is multiplied by the stake size. In neither case does the trader own the underlying market.

Although spread betting is offered to customers in the UK, customers from outside of these countries and in the UK can trade CFDs.

Spreads

Spread betting spreads can be fixed or variable, as can CFD spreads. However some brokers, as may be seen from the table above, offer low fixed spreads for spread betting. The headline spread figure is for Forex spreads, typically for EUR/USD. Spreads for other products can be lower.
