March spread-bet contract

Guest Rockette


Guest Rockette

I have been advised to place a trade on a stock using a March spread-bet contract.

What is a March spread-bet contract and how do I find it on a platform?

Thanks for any help

Hi @Rockette,  that would be a Forward or Futures. Find the stock and click on Forward then click on the March expiry date to bring up the March Forwards chart and Deal/Orders tickets. (sere pic below)

Please be careful.

What is the reasoning behind the person giving you advice? Why are they not placing the trade themselves? Do you trust them? You clearly do not know what a March Spread Bet contract is yet they are asking you to place a traded for a specific time period. Do they know something is going to happen in this period?

Maybe it is nothing but I worry about 'Third Party Insider Dealing'. 

Thanks very much for your reply and concern.

The person giving the advice is an internationally respected trader as part of an advisory service. I'm using a dummy account as I want to test the advice first before committing my money!

Yeh go for it but don’t follow advice blindly. 

(There was a certain level of humour to my reply - be careful! And test like you are doing) 

goo luck and share with community if you want to discuss tactics and have opinions

Thanks very much for your help. I've got it and can proceed OK.

I had the same question as R. However when I looked at rhe site for trading the share it did not have the cash /forward option at the top as indicated above. And what exactly is meant by a March forward contract.

rather than paying overnight charges you can hold until the expiry date without paying them. However

  • you pay a bigger spread
  • you HAVE to close them on (or before) the expiry date. You can 'roll' the contract, however this still means you close the trade, book the profit and loss, and then re buy a new position. The system / IG does this automatically but its still a close/reopen process.

Thank you cryptotrader but I still don't understand why I don't see the option for a forward contract at the top of the page as in the screen shot from Caseynotes

i am trading ana US equity that definitely  should  have a forward contract.

    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
    • As a meme fan, I have been waiting patiently for the Bull trend that happened to BTC recently to get to all the alts and so we can have what we had back then in 2021 to happen again, but time the strength of the uptrend has not been able to match up with what I am expecting and I do hope that the halving will help, but looking at the hype that is usually expected from the meme community. I don't think I'll be able to wait for the trend to resume and so I am taking more steps ahead of the game, taking up all the opportunities I believe would help the price-trend of my holdings, especially for the DOGE memes and I have found this DOGEDAY event ongoing and it really made a lot of sense to me, because if we look at how the DOGE coins have performed in the past. I believe if we can have a Bitcoin day to celebrate the first cryptocurrency, then we should be able to have a DOGEDAY too looking at the success rate of the meme and the support from the community. For me, this is something special that is worth the energy, vibes and hype and worth participating it. There are different sections to the event, which include the Twitter part, where Bitget is sharing $3,00 to those participating( https://twitter.com/bitgetglobal/status/1780495739984150962Twitter Post ) and the telegram event, and I believe this will favour those that love to bet on the price of coins. They are sharing 100BGB tokens for this and the Discord event has a 90BGB token to be shared.  If we can have Bitcoin's day, then this DOGEDAY should be observed in all the DOGE communities and I will admonish meme lovers to observe events like this because it reflects the nature of memecoin and the hype around it.
