Spread betting tips from the UK’s professional trading guide







Trading guides : Spread betting tips : Market outlook


People often think it is extremely difficult to learn to spreadbet successfully. That is not the case! Anyone can learn how to trade by following a series of practical tips and strategies fine tuned into an effective system.

In the 4 years that this website has been online, I have not come across another single website that displays a long track record of accurate and profitable market forecasts such as those presented in the market outlook section. If they could, they would!

If you are really interested in profitable short term trading, then you should bookmark this website right away. Read as many of our articles as you can, check out our trading guides and sign up to have our free market forecast delivered directly into your inbox.

Once you have mastered the basics, you should seriously consider enhancing your trading skills by learning professional trading techniques on our short term trading skills course.

Before delving into the nitty gritty of financial spreads, it is worth clarifying exactly what this website is and is not about.

This website is not just another blog. As you are aware, there are tons of blogs out there rambling on about betting on everything from sports to shares, forex and commodities.

Furthermore, this is not just a pile of basic articles and interviews with brokers. The web is littered with such sites that do absolutely nothing for your trading account. That sort of crap is not going to help you achieve the objective of making money from trading the financial markets. Yes, there is a lot of money to be made in the financial markets...but only for those who really know their stuff.

This particular website is focused on one thing alone: providing you with the best possible information to help you hone your trading skills and learn how to spread bet profitably.

Everything you will ever need for profitable spread trading is right here on this website.

Welcome to spread bet trader, the ultimate professional guide to profitable spreadbetting.
