Even when you’ve read in excess of quite a few articles about financial spread betting, there will be so much more to it than that. It’s not as easy as many people think it is to grasp and there’s not one article that could explain everything there is to learn about it. The name itself gives a whole lot of cause for being misunderstood. “Spread Betting” isn’t about cloak-and-dagger betting on numerous items with money run around by guys in trench coats and dark glasses. It doesn’t talk about a bunch of suits yelling at the tops of their voices to let you have your orders in.

What spread betting will be all about is the stance you are taking about the stock market. There are not any shares owned with this form of activity. It’s not like short trades where you have got to get stocks to produce money. Just make a legal account with a broker and you can start with the spread betting . It simply involves your personal personal opinion on how the marketplace will behave or react at a specific time. Will it go up or down or remain still? How far up or down do you think that it’s moving? Intuition is an inferior way of doing these things; these decisions need to be made based on a lot of research. You’ll then be placing your money within a pool with other people who are speculating on the same stock; this would be where it’ll stay until you’re taking it out.

What’s different about spread betting is you don’t own the shares you are betting on. You’re simply speculating on what the share will do and never on the company itself. Then it won’t really matter that the company makes good or not, the speculator still makes the money. Whatever you would like to bet on, you can. It’s not just stocks or shares but any market instrument. Stock indexes, commodities, foreign currency echange – they’re all open to speculation. And one can find no taxes levied on your winnings, an awesome situation for anybody who likes to win .

This topic has been all the rage for over a decade now. I think I understand why. Most households are dual income, lots of “latch key” kids, workers and professionals in the US always seem to be among the highest in the world in terms of hours worked per week, etc. Too much work, lots of family issues to contend with, a desire to have what is now an underdeveloped social life. I get it. But is work-life imbalance really driven by the large number of hours we work? Not really. A lack of balance is not simply about too many hours. It is really about the stress associated with those hours. Good news, stress associated with work-life imbalance can be addressed. The effect of the number of hours on you is primarily determined by:

1. Your fit with your current role and or boss and or vocation. I hope most of you who are reading this are in the front third of your careers! You can “fit,” well or poorly, with your current role, boss or vocation. In the ideal situation you are a department head (role) for Suzy (your boss) over a group of staff accountants (accounting is the vocation) and you love everything about it. Unfortunately, some of you do not want to be the department head (or you feel you are stuck there and are unable to move higher), you do not like your boss and you can’t even recall how you convinced yourself accounting was the field for you. My point here is that if you will think about how much of the stress you have is due to poor fit (as opposed to lack of “balance”) you can begin the journey of exploring ways to find better fit.

2. Your willingness and ability to grow. Assuming you have decent fit, you very likely face many other challenging work-related issues. The amount of work, difficult relationships, uncertainty about many outcomes ahead of you, etc. Welcome to the club. How well you practice personal professional improvement 101 says a lot about how much you’ll stress out. This refers to systems of time management, self motivation and goal setting, seeking and using mentors and feedback, finding innumerable forms of training and learning, finding adequate time away from the office, and so on.

Yes, each of these two topics is huge! Having said that – they are your targets. Start thinking, reading and planning to find better fit. Guess what? When you have decent fit, the personal improvement part becomes really easy. You no longer strive for work-life balance when you love your work. Good luck!
