LONDON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Volatility is very important in financial spread betting
(http://www.cityindex.co.uk/spread-betting/). Without it, there wouldn’t be enough movement in the markets for
traders to capitalise on. Unfortunately, unforeseen volatility moving against you can result in losses that exceed your
initial deposit. So as a trader, how can you prepare for the unexpected?
Many spread bettors use a combination of fundamental and technical analysis to foresee price movements.
Fundamental analysis assesses the economy and individual company data to determine the value of a stock, whereas
technical analysis focuses on price movements and volumes of trades.
City Index (http://www.cityindex.co.uk/) offers a free daily market commentary and professional charting software to
make your market analysis as effective and efficient as possible.
Mobile trading is an increasingly popular way for traders to spot and react to sudden changes in the markets. Joshua
Raymond, City Index market strategist, is a big advocate of mobile trading. “Spread bettors traditionally seek out
volatility to create trading opportunities, and with this comes quick price changes. It is crucial that a spread bettor is
able to react quickly, by both monitoring live prices and trading whenever they see an opportunity, on the go.”
A great way to practice trading strategies without losing any real capital is with a spread betting demo account from

Spread betting and CFD trading are leveraged products which can result in losses greater than your initial deposit.
Ensure you fully understand the risks.
