Understanding how market movements affect your profit or loss is vital to understanding spread betting. Our interactive tutorial lets you select a market, choose your stake size and buy or sell the market. You can then watch what happens if the market moves in your favour and if it doesn't.

Isn't spread betting risky?

Spread betting offers many benefits, but it's important to note that it carries a high level of risk to your capital and you can lose more than your initial deposit, so you should only bet with money you can afford to lose and ensure spread betting meets your investment objectives.
