Spread betting with FinancialSpreads.com couldn't be simpler. Please note that you will need an email address as contract notes are sent via email and your statement is only available online. The following User Manual gives you a step-by-step guide on how to trade online with FinancialSpreads.com.
- Please note that every trade generates an automatic stop loss, which you can amend after you’ve opened a trade or at a later date via your Order Book or Open Positions. Whilst these stops will be filled at the level you request, in the rare event of the market gapping you’ll be filled at the next best level.

Trading platform overview
Our trading platform has been designed to make your trading experience as simple as possible.
You will find links to the products that we offer broken down by type of product for example, indices, shares, foreign exchange etc. If you cannot find the product that you want, you can use our Search facility.
On the bottom left hand side of the screen you will see your account number. You will need this if you contact us to make a trade or for any other query on your account.
Split trading screen
In the view below you can see the trading screen is split into two main sections. In this example you can see Popular Markets on top screen. You can navigate to other markets via the top navigation bar and they will display in the top window.
On the bottom half of the trading screen you can display other tabs such as the Open Positions, Order Book, Trade History or Account Transactions.
You can move the bar in the middle of the screen up or down so you can view more of the markets in the top half of the screen or more of the view chosen by you in the bottom half of the screen.
Select a product and make a trade
There are a couple of ways you can search for a market:
1). Navigating from the drop down menus
If, for example, you want to find gold, you would need to click on the Commodities tab on the top navigation bar. This will then bring up a list of all the commodities we offer in a drop down list so you can refine your selection.
2). Using the Search facility
If you cannot find the product you wish to trade, please use the search facility at the top of the screen.
Type in the name of the product you would like to see and then press the search button. All matches will appear in the top part of the trading screen.
