Spread Betting

The Financial Spread Betting HandbookThe Financial Spread Betting Handbook by Malcolm Pryor

This book is strongly recommend this book to anyone who is planning on starting spread betting. Malcolm Pryor writes in an easy to follow style without being patronising or verbose. He covers everything that a novice needs to know in order to make the decision about whether spread betting is going to be for them. He offers practical advice with an emphasis on risk management and suggests some trading strategies which are simple to understand.

Good is the way he continually refers to the characteristics of a successful spread better compared to those of someone who isn't. For this reason I would also recommend this book for someone who has been trading for a while but would like to improve their win ratio.

The book is full of helpful tips and each chapter has a concise summary of the points made. The chapter entitled "Common and Really Expnsive Spread Betting Errors" is a real gem and worth the price of the book itself. People gain much from reading this book and I am sure that others whether novice or experienced traders will also be impressed with its clarity and comprehensive coverage of the subject of Spread Betting.
