How to see Spread bet expiry dates?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I've been led to believe that spread bet positions always have expiry dates. Can anyone tell me how you can see these dates as I've had a really good look around and cannot see them.

Thanks in advance,

Kevin.

There's an 'i' (info) button on the trading ticket showing the information you require

just to add to bigdeal's reply SBs can be either cash/daily funded bet or futures/forward which have a separate chart accessed from the dropdown box next to the chart title.

for cash/dfb there is no expiry but you paid an overnight interest fee, this charge does not apply to futures/forwards which have a larger spread instead.

    • *parp!*  Ooh what's that smell!  
    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
