FCA Regulations and Spread Betting

So let’s begin with news of an FCA crackdown on financial spread betting brokers.

Turning now to one of our top spread betting brokers – InterTrader, who in December 2016 merged their InterTrader Direct brand with their flagship brand InterTrader. Clients who previously traded with InterTrader Direct will not experience any changes in their trading account except that they will need to log on from As the brands were running in parallel for some time, the decision to merge the two was made to simplify their product offering and avoid confusion between the two brands.
