1) Exit Strategy
Some traders focus their analysis on finding the perfect entry price point for their spread bet. While this is important, the price at which you plan to exit the spread bet is of equal value. Concentrating on stop losses and limit orders can be an effective way of managing your trading away from a computer.
2) Timeframe Consideration
Having the ability to react quickly to market movements can make a significant difference in short-term spread betting. For this reason, unless you have constant access to a trading platform and your spread betting account, it may be worth considering more medium to long-term spread betting. For a short-term trader there can be a lot of pressure to frequently check the markets, which can lead to spread betting mistakes and indecision.
3) Mobile Trading
