Punters have been trying to beat the man for centuries and spread betting is no different.  In the case of spread betting brokerage arbitrage is appears that scales are against the customer.

There are countless cases of punters finding loop holes in the dealing systems of various stock and spread betting brokers and (quite innocently) trading to take advantage of them.  After all arbitrage between markets is a legitimate trading strategy.  However, as with casinos, the house will win when it comes down to it.  Don’t bother as this sort of behaviour can be seen as market manipulation and may result in fines.

Stick to the basic principles of buying low and selling high. It’s not fair but it’s the facts.
