Ladbrokes Financial Spreads
Ladbrokes, one of the world’s leading gaming companies, has announced the launch of a new, financial spread trading service on its website.
The Ladbrokes Financial Spreads offering, developed in conjunction with WorldSpreads, is unique as it operates on a dual platform giving both new and experienced spread trading customers the option of using a service specifically tailored to their needs.
Like other spread trading services Ladbrokes Financial Spreads offers new investors the assurance of limiting their losses to the amount they have deposited in their Ladbrokes account by using the “Standard Platform”.
Other advantages of the Standard Platform include:
- Free Guaranteed Stops
- Spreads as low as 1 point, and
- The ability to buy or sell movements such as the day change on any one of the 18 most popular indices and currencies including FTSE 100, DAX 30, Wall Street and NASDAQ
Ladbrokes Financial Spreads Advanced Platform
An experienced spread trader can switch to the “Advanced Platform” which has features including Trailing Stops to enable automatic management of your account.
The Advanced Platform also enables investors to trade using “Contingent Orders” where a trade is not activated until another separate order is executed (for example a buy order is not triggered until a separate sell order is completed).
With the Advanced Platform an investor can also be both long and short in the same market at the same time.
The range of markets also extends beyond the leading indices to stock prices of the UK top 100 and 250 as well as leading Irish, European, US and South African companies. It is also possible to speculate on the futures of these markets.
Ladbrokes has over 765,000 active customers and the new spread trading service is aimed at appealing to these customers as well as new customers seeking an easy to understand financial spread trading service.
John O’Reilly, MD, Ladbrokes, said, “Ladbrokes customers now have the option of spread trading using a choice of platforms tailored to their level of experience and knowledge. We are committed to offering our customers the widest possible range of opportunities and Ladbrokes spread trading is the latest demonstration of that commitment.”
Ladbrokes offers a single online wallet across sportsbook, casino, poker, bingo and financial spreads. As such money can be placed in a financial spread trading account at all times, not just when markets are open.

At the time of writing, Ladbrokes Financial Spreads is also offering customers up to £300 cashback on net losses made in the first 8 weeks of opening a spread trading account. Terms and conditions apply.
