Sectors

Take advantage of strength or weakness in a particular industry with a sector spread bet or CFD.

We offer more than 35 UK and Australian sectors, including banking, mining and general retailers.

When might you trade on sectors?

  • To take a position based on knowledge or news about a particular sector
  • To hedge against weakness in a sector within a strong overall index

Benefits

  • Protect against company-specific news that could see an individual stock buck the overall trend of the sector
  • Target gains within a specific sector rather than dilute profits with an overall index position
  • There tends to be less volatility across a whole sector than in individual shares

Exchange traded products (ETPs)

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are investment products that aim to replicate the movements of a particular stock index.

Exchange traded commodities (ETCs) work in a similar way, either tracking specific commodities or an index of diversified commodities.

When might you trade on ETPs?

  • To track a basket of shares or goods with a single transaction
  • ETPs can have capital gains tax advantages over funds and index trackers*
  • ETPs are sometimes the only way to access exotic markets



Benefits

  • Combine what would otherwise be several trades in a single transaction
  • Continuous pricing means you can trade at any time during market hours
  • ETFs have the same level of flexibility and transparency as shares

See our ETP costs and details within the spread betting shares list and CFD shares list.
