Spread betting is very flexible *******www.spread-betting****/ in that it allows you to enter positions a bit at a time and this allows you to close part of your bet and keep the rest running. I sometimes see traders saying they treat spread bets the same as normal share dealings. Well, some spread betters don't! One big advantage of using spreadbets rather than actual share purchases, is that one can make phased exits without incurring duplicated or triplicated broker fees. This can have tremendous psychological value.
