Spread betting is a form of betting in which the bettor wins or loses money according to the margin by which the value of a particular outcome varies from the spread of expected values quoted by the bookmaker. Winnings and loses can be much larger than the original stake.
Put simply, spread betting companies will offer our prediction for every market, and it is up to you to decide if you think the final outcome will be higher or lower, more or less, faster or slower. If you think our quote is too low, you would ‘buy’. If you think we are too high, you would ‘sell’.
