spread betting is probably the most difficult game. but given the leverage I like to try it out. as a simple try to see if it is possible to make money from spread betting I have opened a account with Â£150. my aim is to make Â£1000 by end of November. this is just a play, but with real money, be it really small amount. but don't laugh if I lose it all! I will post all my trades at the time of trading. 14th. 1st trade: short FTSE 100 @ 6424.4.. Have placed Â£1 a point.
