Spreads

Question

Hi Guys I've started a spread betting account for a hobby and to learn. I have a question i hope someone can answer. When I'm trading indices or forex the spread is shown between the sell and buy positions but when i want to trade a company alone it is not. Where do i find that info so i know where i will land when i open the position? 

Thanks

Hi , thanks for the post and welcome!

 

If you are trading shares on a spread betting account, you should still see a slight difference between the buy and sell prices when the underlying market is open.  Our spreads are as low as possible, and are calculated as a percentage premium.  Full details for share spreads can be found on our website here.  Perhaps you were looking at prices when the underlying market has been closed?

 

It's a good idea to do a few practice trades on your demo account so you can really get a feel for where your trade is executed and the movement between the buy and sell prices.

 

I hope this helps, but if you have any more questions please just ask!

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi - unfortunately that wouldn't be possible because of the nature of the OTC offering of spread betting. If you wanted to deal via a CFD, and you were looking specifically at shares, then you'd be able to place your deal inside the spread and become best bid/offer, however there is no guarantee that you would be filled straight away.

    • hahaha, Chris Hopson, CEO of NHS Providers, says "We need to get ahead of the virus" and suspects "We will need to vaccinate the population year in, year out" for the next "five, 10, 15 years" and urges Government to plan autumn booster vaccine rollout. 💉💉💉💲💲💲🤪🤪🤪   forget it, I'm perfectly satisfied with my own immune system thanks very much
