Not too long after the 2012 White House race Sporting Index disappeared from the political betting scene. This was to be much regretted. I’m a huge spread betting fan and just love the way that political futures can be traded like stocks and shares.
Well SPIN has found the Scottish Referendum irresistible. It has become a massive, in political betting terms, market and across the board the bookies are reporting high levels of activity.
There are two SPIN spread markets:-
Independence Index: 4.8 â€“ 6.3 (Yes = 25, No = 0)
Turnout percentage: 78 â€“ 79
Hopefully this will be a precursor to the firm operating its usual General Election spread betting markets.
