Minimum Deposit Spread Betting Accounts

Nothing could be further from the truth these days at is possible to make a small deposit with your debit or credit card and start trading straight away though.

One thing to bear in mind though is that it is all very well being able to make a small deposit into your account but you won’t be able to make a trade unless you have covered the margin requirements. Even though these margin requirements are often on the generous side, especially if betting with some of the smaller brokers out there, there is nothing worse than spotting a trading opportunity and then realizing that you don’t have the funds in place to cover the bet.
