Spread Betting Strategies
Spread betting strategies come in many different shapes and sizes, and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ rule that can be applied. The various strategies and techniques that more experienced traders implement are designed to make it easier to predict potentially profitable trades, and to make longer-term profits more achievable, yet devising a strategy in the first instance can be a difficult and time consuming process – particularly for those just starting out. Traders of all levels of experience implement trading strategies in order to introduce some routine and rules into their trading.
When should you leave a position? Should you short or go long? Where, if at all, should you set your stops? With a set strategy, you’re attempting to stack the odds in your favour in a bid to eliminate much of the guesswork, ideally paving the way for more consistent and ultimately more profitable trading. So how might a trading strategy start to take shape?
To make the process slightly easier, here is a quick look at some of the more popular spread betting strategies employed by spread traders from all walks of life to improve their chances of placing more frequent winning bets.
