'Markets. They go up. They go down. How difficult can it be'? Sally Nicoll begins her spread betting journey with magnificently misplaced optimism.

"Bets and the City" is based on Sally's enormously popular column for Finspreads. In between the funny bits, there's some really useful information: never take a holiday in Cornwall when you're speculating on sterling against the dollar; why you should resist the temptation to be kind to your mother; sensible advice from the man who lost $10 million in a single trading session; why women make better traders than men; and, the simple trade that enables you to turn your computer into a cash register.
