Here's a brief guide to how the market works...

This Means:You can bet on the Aberdeen Asset Management Rolling Cash market to push:

This is a Rolling spread bet and so there is no settlement date for this trade. If you decide not to close your position and the session ends then your position will automatically roll over into the next session.

Note: if the trade is rolled over then you will normally either have to pay or receive interest for overnight financing based on whether you are speculating on the market to fall or rise. For more details also see Rolling Spread Betting.
