This is another financial spread betting question that is highly controversial. Simply put the answer is YES. You can make money, just like you can make money at a casino, or in fixing up a property and re-selling it. Financial Spread Betting is very lucrative if you get it right, but it’s also very pricey if you get it wrong. That’s what makes it so risky. The potential rewards are huge but so are the losses. But if you do your research and you are disciplined and use stop losses…well you can still lose, but you maybe, just maybe have a better chance at winning than the average financial spread betting client.

I first cut my teeth in the Square Mile in the winter of 2002. I was young, fresh-faced and straight out of university; keen but maybe a little naïve about the way the investment world really worked… A few years ago I discover a whole new world of opportunity: spread betting on the financial markets.
