I have recently started spread betting having spent months studying the subject. I started with £300 and within 1 week had lost the whole lot! My best position was £5 in profit. The rest just ran at losses even though I studied the charts for ages. I am concerened about putting more money into this without knowing if it really is as good as the companies say. I read on msn a recent survey of the spread betting firms that said 90% of traders lost their money and that companies such as IG index are seeing massive growth in their profits. Is there anybody out there actually making money spread betting?
