LONDON, October 11, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you are already familiar with financial spread betting or an absolute beginner, there is ample reason to try the Trading Academy Course at financial spread betting provider Finspreads (http://www.finspreads.com). Here is your 60 second guide to this comprehensive spread betting education programme:
Small stakes sizes
For eight weeks from the day you sign up, you can spread bet with stake sizes from 10 pence per point, with unlimited access to all the features of the real Finspreads trading platform. All you need to do to gain access to the smaller stake sizes is deposit GBP100 or more into your new spread betting account. After the initial eight weeks from the start of the Trading Academy Course period your minimum spread bet size will rise from 10 pence per point to 50 pence per point.
The most successful spread betters are the ones who understand and manage their risks. By using the tools available - stop losses and guaranteed stop losses, which are explained at http://www.finspreads.com/learn_to_spread_bet/managing_your_risk.aspx - you can ensure that you never lose more than you are prepared to without limiting your profit potential. The Trading Academy Course not only explains the risks of spread betting, but also the tools you can use to limit your potential losses while maximising your potential spread betting rewards.
Spread betting seminars
Finspreads recently introduced a whole new range of interactive spread betting workshops as part of the growth of its education programme. These free workshops take place in a newly-created trading room which gives all attendees their own personal spread betting workstation for the duration of the session. With the spread betting seminars led by experienced speakers and members of the account management team, attendees can then utilise what they have learned through a session of simulated trading. See a list of the upcoming financial spread betting seminars at http://www.finspreads.com/learn_to_spread_bet/spread_betting_seminars.aspx
