I started in the interbank market whilst on a gap year in Sydney in 1987 with Prebons on the spot aussie desk. Moved back to London couple of years later with Prebon London before going to Tulletts both in London and New York, then moved to a broker in Luxembourg half owned by Tulletts and spent a few (very) happy years there doing usd/dem went to IG then another spread bet company in London and finally to where i am now, a fca and cysec regulated stp spreadbetting and cfd company. I run the company as ceo - we're busy and profitable and continuously struggling to stay compliant in this ever increasingly difficult industry. i don't bet (except poker).

Previously said no to Timsk when asked to do an interview because i don't want my identity to be known. I've seen people i know step out of the shadows on trade2win and get shouted down and i don't want that to happen to me but i'm happy to answer what i can, when i can.

thanks.

good question.

We took a look at all of the open positions we currently have and found that 74% of them have a stop loss order attached and 77% have a limit order attached.

Hi highbury

Have you ever heard of anybody paying tax on spread betting winnings?
