Spread Betting Demo

Spread betting is a way of speculating on the markets. You can start with smaller amounts of money, before committing more when you’re comfortable.

Before committing any funds, you can opt to try a spread betting demo platform. This gives you a chance to practice trading on a risk-free basis. You can apply for your free Accendo Markets spread betting demo account here.

Spread Betting Demo

We all feel a little unnerved when starting out on a new venture, even those experienced traders who have previously used other methods of trading will appreciate a bit of support before branching out into a new field. That is why we are offering this free spread betting demo in order to provide our clients, or potentially new clients, with the opportunity to get the feel of the product before trading live. When you sign up for the spread betting demo it will give you an allowance of fictional money to trade with, so that you can practice your trading strategy with no risk and no loss to yourself.

Successful traders always ensure that they have a suitable trading plan and effective risk management strategy in place.

About Spread Betting

Spread betting is speculating on the movement of stocks and shares; that is speculating on whether the market price will rise (going long) or fall (going short). Therefore, you can make money even if the market price falls if that’s the way you have made the call. Of course you can also lose money if the price rises when you have gone short, or falls when you went long. So, as the spread betting demo will show you, when you spread bet you don’t own anything; you simply speculate on which way you think the market price will move, up or down.

Spread betting provides investors with a variety of markets to trade in, including shares, commodities, currencies and indices, allowing traders and investors to go beyond the equity markets. And spread betting is a remarkably cost-effective method of trading, here’s why:

• Tax free profits*
• Currently no stamp duty*
• No commission payable

It is important that investors are aware that spread betting is a risky product; trades can go against you. Bearing this in mind, you should only speculate an amount that you can afford to lose. Some losing trades should be expected, but the objective is for wins to exceed losses. Spread betting is widely used by professional traders and retail clients because it provides a higher risk/reward value. Signing up for our free spread betting demo will give you the opportunity to gain a little experience with our virtual funds, before you commit to investing real money.
