The FCA outlines new proposals to crack down on financial spread betting, has this come as a shock to the industry?
The Financial Conduct Authority has outlined new proposals to crack down on financial spread betting. Financial spread-betting products known as "contracts for difference" are agreements that allow two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. However they are notoriously risky- with an investigation by the FCA finding that 82% of investors lost money on them. Shares in spread betting companies fell dramatically today after the news. To find out more about the measures proposed, Simon was joined by Jake Green Regulation Partner at law firm Ashurst.

FCA to crackdown on spread betting - with Billy Bambrough
Spread betting firms plunged 30% earlier today after the Financial Conduct Authority announced new regulations for the sector. Chief among their fears was that customers using these products didn't understand them properly and as a result weren't aware of the risks involved. Share Radio's Juliette Foster speaks to Billy Bambrough, City A.M.'s deputy news editor, to help illuminate what these products are, what the new rules entail, and which firms will be affected the most by the change.

The Weeks Update: Debt - whose burden?
Private debt in the UK stands at £1.5 trillion, according to the latest figures from "The Money Charity" which educates people in managing their finances. The average adult now owes almost £30,000 or just over 113% of their annual earnings, while outgoings from mortgages, loans and credit cards constitute 82% of what the entire economy produces in a year. Yet behind the numbers lurk individual stories of hardship along with concerns about the impact of debt on the economy's long-term ability to function. So is it time for governments to change their perception of debt and to stop seeing it as the sole responsibility of those who are struggling to pay their way? Joining Share Radio's Juliette Foster and our economics correspondent Professor John Weeks is Dr. Johanna Montgomerie, Deputy Director at the Political Economy Research Centre at Goldsmiths University.

Ceci n'est pas une Brexit - with John Barrass
It's day 2 of the Supreme Court hearing on Prime Minister Theresa May's bid to take Britain out of the European Union without a parliamentary vote. While the lawyers slug it out, Chancellor Philip Hammond says the government hasn't dismissed the idea of Britain paying into the EU budget even after leaving the bloc. He claims it's the only way that British companies will be able to access Europe's single market in a post-Brexit world. However Michel Barnier, Europe's Chief Negotiator, says countries outside the bloc can never have the same rights and benefits as those within. So the message to Mr Hammond: "Collez-le dans votre pipe et fumez la" - which in English means "Stick it in your pipe and smoke it!" For more analysis Share Radio's Juliette Foster was joined in the studio by John Barrass, the non smoking Deputy Chief Executive of the Wealth Management Association.
