Having to wait for a connection to repair itself can drastically affect your spread betting returns. That is why you should always have contingencies in place for when your online trading platform cannot be reached. Here are three of the spread betting Plan Bs available to you:
Spread betting orders
Mobile spread betting
Telephone provider direct
You can call most spread betting providers’ trading desks direct to place spread bets or orders over the telephone. Although a useful option, this is a less instant way of spread betting than mobile or iPhone trading platforms. That said, you can never have to many contingency plans, so always keep your spread betting provider’s telephone number written down just in case. The City Index trading desk can be contacted at +44(0)845-355-0801.
