Spreadbet web platform
We’ve made our spread betting platform as easy to use as possible, but that doesn’t mean it’s not filled with lots of advanced trading features.
Use our web platform to easily access the global financial markets from your computer, through any of the popular browsers. You won’t need to download and install any software, just login online and you can start spread betting.

Create your own trading dashboard
Click once to pick up and move anything on your screen to create your own customised layout. Found something to trade? Drag and drop to create a quote panel and you’re ready to go.

Drag and drop library
Our intuitive product library helps you find the products you’re interested in spread betting quickly and easily. Sort our extensive range of products with our straightforward navigation menu – you can browse by product type, sector, region, country, performance or volatility. If you know what you’re looking for simply type the product name into the search box. You can even search by popular nicknames like ‘cable’ for USD/GBP, or by stock ticker codes. When you’ve found the product you want to spread bet on, simply drag and drop it onto your dashboard or into a watchlist.
Choose your stake size and manage your risk through the order ticket before you spread bet. You can customise a full range of risk management features right on the order ticket, such as stop losses, trailing stops and take profit orders. Or let the platform suggest a stop loss for each trade, based on the margin amount for that position. This is known as transaction based stop loss.
We've put together handy factsheets for every product in our library. Everything you’ll want to know is covered, from the basics, like trading hours, margin rates and spreads, through to real-time news and insights on how other market forces can influence prices.
We stream the Reuters news service live into our platform so you can get all the breaking news from around the globe as and when it happens. You need never miss an important announcement again.
Our team of market analysts, in conjunction with Reuters news service, write updates throughout the day on market activity, breaking news and big announcements that could inform your strategy. The style is direct and to-the-point, and our updates cover general market conditions, equities in focus, economic and company announcements, commodities and foreign exchange news.
You can focus your spread betting by creating and personalising your own watchlists so you can easily monitor the performance of the products you’re most interested in. Just drag and drop prices into an existing watchlist, or create a new one directly from the product library. To personalise your watchlists even more you can change the colour of the title bar to reflect priorities, and you can easily reorder lists by dragging the products up or down into a new position.
