Fixed odds financial betting offers a tax free*, flexible and innovative alternative to trading the financial markets. With fixed odds betting you can bet on the financial markets knowing exactly what you stand to gain or lose from the point you place your trade. This means you can never lose more than your original stake and you always know what you stand to gain.
A fixed odds bet is a bet which pays out a fixed amount if a predicted event occurs within a specified timescale. If the predicted event does not occur within the duration of the bet then all you lose is your original stake (again a fixed amount). The events that you can bet on are more varied with financial fixed odds betting than with any other form of trading. Not only can you bet on the market going up or down, you can bet on the market not going up or not going down, you can bet on the market staying within a range or not staying within a range and much, much more.
Financial fixed odds betting is the simplest way to trade the financial markets. The bets are flexible, transparent and easy to understand. If you're not familiar with trading then fixed odds betting is a great place to start. If you're an experienced trader then fixed odds betting will be a valuable addition to your investing armoury.
