Brokers Offering Spread Betting on MT4

The industry’s standard platform MetaTrader 4 (MT4), supported by most brokers, normally does not include a spread betting option. Brokers, however, may customize it in such a way as to enable it.

The spread betting market is concentrated in the UK and a few other European countries, as in others, such as US, Japan, and Australia, it is declared illegal. Due to the fact that it is categorized as a bet, no capital gain tax and stamp duty are charged on this trade.

Still, there aren’t many brokers offering this option. Here is a list of forex brokerages, currently providing spread betting on MT4:

Alpari UK
