Many experts suggest that the flexibility of spread betting is one of the main factors in the rise in popularity of the derivative over the last few years.
Of course, one could cite a range of reasons for the derivative's rise, such as 24 hour spread betting, and the ability to trade on a huge range of markets, including shares, commodities, stock market indices and forex markets. Nevertheless, judging by the number of short term trades, the flexible trading is definitely a positive.
When spread betting, investors can opt for 'Futures Spread Bets', i.e. trades that typically expire in one-to-three months. Investors can also opt for a daily trade that closes at the end of the day, or they can choose daily trades that can continue into the next day, otherwise known as 'Rolling Daily Spread Bets'.
Most spread betting providers now offer some form of rolling daily bets on their most popular markets. These trades continue, or 'rollover', into the next day for a small fee unless they are closed by the investor or a trading order such as a Limit Order or Stop Loss Order.
That is why spread betting site CleanFinancial.com has introduced a brand new guide to rolling daily spread bets.
"At CleanFinancial.com we understand the significance of rolling daily spread bets to our visitors," said CleanFinancial.com editor Jenna Cutly. "Many spread bettors who visit our site prefer short term trades but want the flexibility of trades that can rollover to the next trading day.
"However, like all areas of spread betting, traders should understand the risks, as well as the opportunities, of rolling daily markets, which is why we've released this handy guide to rolling daily markets."
The guide covers a range of information about rolling daily markets, answering questions such as 'what is a rolling daily spread bet?' and 'why trade rolling daily spread bets?'
However the guide also covers more advanced areas, such as 'Dividend Adjustments' and 'Overnight Financing'.
