What Is Spread Betting?
Spread betting is the betting on the price movement of foreign currency, metals, oil and other securities.
Security brokers, who provide securities for trading, quote two prices, a bid and offer price. The difference between the two is the spread. Spread betting involves the speculation on the changes in price; there is no owning of the underlying stock.
