Financial spread betting offers a potentially tax-free way of buying and selling (including short-selling) stocks, stock indices, commodities and currencies. It can be more cost-effective than share dealing in a traditional stockbroker account, and it need not be any more dangerous. 

Most spread bettors lose money, and many of them give up within six months, but you don’t need to be one of them if you practice “Better Spread Betting”. And if you can make it work (or not fail too badly) during times of market meltdown, then you should be well placed to reap the rewards when the good times roll.

If you think that spread betting is the reckless gambler’s alternative to the more noble art of serious “investing”, think again! If you think you need a lot of money to get started with financial spread betting, think again!

This 150-page book includes tips from spread betting industry experts and popular financial authors including Malcolm Pryor, Robbie Burns (the Naked Trader) and Pete Comley (the Monkey with a Pin).
