Spread Betting Leverage

One of the most attractive features of spread betting over share dealing and other forms of asset purchases is the minimal margin that companies require when opening trades.  Trading on leverage gives the trader the opportunity to open positions that are worth much larger sums of money than they have deposited in their accounts.  When used sensibly, by utilising stop losses and limit orders, leverage gives the opportunity to make huge profits to traders that otherwise wouldn’t have such gains available.
