First let's not kid ourselves - I'm going to put in an early health warning to say that spread betting is not for everyone - you can make very large gains but equally big losses. Using gearing increases the risk, no doubt about that but as long as you know what you're doing and understand the risk you will be all right. Strangely, I find the bigger your portfolio gets, the more risk-averse you become.

Before starting remember spread betting and day trading in general is risky: in other words if you can't afford to lose it, you can't afford to risk it!
