Is is possible to bet against the index? I am using bullbearings.co.uk to play with spreadbetting and can place bets on individual stocks, but what about the entire index?

TIA

It pains me to say this SuitYou, but the best thing that i can say to you is "stick to what you know.Leave speculating to experts".

Any idiot can do it. I made 2k before 9am and you're much smarter than me.

Stick half on red, half on black & repeat. Youll double one half every go and you'll never lose!

Errr, click Sell rather than Buy when you place your spreadbet. Yes, it is that simple. I make £9K a day, before breakfast. You cannot lose!

Open an account with IG Index (www.igindex.co.uk)

If you day trading, bet using the daily index bets.

If you holding for weeks or months use the index futures bets.

Bullbearings isn't that good for demoing a lot of stuff. I recommend GFT, get a demo account first and learn on that. Try not to risk more than 2% of your account on any one trade.
