I live in the UK and have been trading for several years, I spread bet with Core Spreads, their spreads are tight and I have no problem with them. I'm hoping you can advise me as to why all UK traders don't spread bet, why pay tax if you do not have to? Am I missing something? The start of next year I will be funding my account with £100,000 is this too much to spread bet with, do I need to trade CFD's, if so why? I would be most grateful if any professional trader can help me out as I'm a little confused. Many thanks.
