One of the most popular markets for spread betting is on the movement of entire stock markets such as the FTSE, CAC or the Dow Jones Index. An index is created by adding up the stock prices of a certain grouping of securities into one value, and then tracking its movement compared to a base value on a particular date.  It is a fantastic alternative to share dealing as it is tax free. This type of spread bet trading means that you are trading
