    1. As Mentioned Frboee Financial Spread Betting Is Not Gambling. It Depends How You Use It. You Can Use Spread Betting To Hedge Your Portfolio And It's Surely Not Gambling. Many Retail Traders In The UK Use Spread Betting To Add Some Flavour To Investing And Use Some Of The Funds To Speculate On Small Movements In Stocks.2. Stay Away From Forex For The Time Being As Even If You Bet A31 Per Point You Can Easily End Up With A3200+ Loss In One Day. Why Don't You Start Trading FTSE100 Index Or FTSE100 Shares As They Are Less Volatile. Also Try To Stay Away From Commodities.3. If You Are New To Spread Betting Then I'd Advise You Start With Max A3200 And Start Trading With The Smallest Possible Bets And As Your Confidence Growth You Can Start Increasing Stakes.4. Victor Chandler Have Good Trading Platform And Are White Label For London Capital Group. You Might Want To Consider InterTrader As Well As They Use The Same Platform But Offer 10% First Deposit Bonus. Shop Around And Don't Just Open Account With The First Broker You Find.
