Financial spread betting offers an opportunity to speculate on financial instruments such as shares, currencies, and indices without having to invest directly in them. Buying and selling on the financial markets usually involves hefty payments to brokers. Buying and selling stocks and indices is also subject to capital gains tax which, combined with broker fees, could cancel out any gains that you make from making successful predictions. By taking the middleman out of the equation, financial spread betting firms are able to offer cheaper investment opportunities to some smart investors.
