SpreadBets, the London based financial spread betting site, has relaunched with a comprehensive range of improvements.
The original SpreadBets.org.uk site was created in order to help those investors unfamiliar with spread betting. The site focused on helping investors navigate the pitfalls and complexities of spread betting.
The website has now been fully reworked so that it still helps the existing audience but also caters for more sophisticated traders.
Part of the upgrades include daily trading videos on the latest market movements, weekly technical analysis videos and daily broker recommendations.
According to James White, the website's editor, the site has also increased both the number of trading guides and how useful each guide is.
"The old site was certainly useful for beginners who wanted an introduction to spread betting but it didn't offer other investors that much more. With the new site we have worked hard on giving less experienced investors clearer content and more detailed walk-throughs of how spread betting works.
"However, whereas we used to focus solely on beginners, we have now expanded in order to give experienced traders a useful view of the markets.
"We have always had hundreds of individual pages and guides dedicated to specific markets such as the FTSE 100, EUR/USD, gold, crude oil and so on. These guides have been upgraded and now come with live charts, worked trading explanations, a look at the risks and where investors can practice trading the markets they are unfamiliar with.
"The new site has been extended to cover specific US stocks such as Twitter, Apple, Facebook and Google as well as unusual spread betting markets such as Bitcoin and the Alibaba IPO.
"On top of the revamp to the market guides and the new trading videos, our spread betting company reviews now have user comment sections so that it is easier for users to share their views on the good, and not-so-good, aspects of the various brokers."
SpreadBets is a financial portal that was launched in 2007 and caters to both new and experienced spread bettors. The site covers a number of asset classes including shares, stock market indices, forex, commodities and treasuries. The relaunched site comes with guides to new markets such as Bitcoin and the Alibaba IPO grey market.
