Spreads betting

When placing an order via a spread betting account do the brokers make money though out the length of the trade (ie for every pip profit made) or just at the opening stage of the order when the balance is always negative depending on what the spread when the trade is opened

Just seems I make more money on the demo account as that is likely I guess to be a pro trader account with lower spreads and not the standard one

Many thanks in advance


All income due to the SB broker results from the spread between the ask and bid prices. There is no additional fee or charge tacked on at the end when the trade is closed.


I think you just need to read the small print and see what the charges are etc.
