Using Stock Market Index Spread Betting Prices



FTSE 100 Example

At the moment, the price of the FTSE 100 Rolling Daily market is 6010.0 - 6011.0 with spread trading companies such as Tradefair.

Like many major stock market indices, an investor can bet on the FTSE 100 either increasing or decreasing. With this FTSE 100 Rolling Daily market, investors can speculate on:

a) The FTSE 100 to increase higher than 6011.0, or
b) The FTSE 100 to decrease lower than 6010.0.

It should be noted that with the FTSE 100 market you trade in £X per point, where a point is 1 point of FTSE 100 movement. As a brief example, if you had a stake of £6 per point and the FTSE 100 index moves 5 points then you would see a change to your P&L of £30.

FTSE 100 Stock Market Index Trading Example

For example, letís assume you see the live price on a spread betting website and it shows a spread of 6010.0 - 6011.0. So, having done your market research, you might feel that the FTSE 100 is going to go above 6011.0. As a result:
  1. You believe that the FTSE 100 should rise
  2. As a result, you choose to go long of, or buy, the market at 6011.0 and you risk £3 per point
  3. The index rises and so the spread changes to 6050.1 - 6051.1
  4. With the new price you could choose to take your profit and settle your position. In order to do this you would sell at 6050.1
  5. You bought the spread bet at 6011.0
  6. Profit = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
  7. Profit = (6050.1 - 6011.0) x £3 per point stake
  8. Profit = 39.1 x £3 per point stake
  9. Profit = £117.30 profit
Spread trading does not always go to plan. If the trade didnít work as planned, and had the FTSE 100 decreased in value, with the spread moving down to 5977.9 - 5978.9, then you could decide to close your position and prevent further losses. You would do this by selling at 5977.9.
  1. You bought the market at 6011.0
  2. Loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
  3. Loss = (5977.9 - 6011.0) x £3 per point stake
  4. Loss = -33.1 x £3 per point stake
  5. Loss = -£99.30 loss
Please note that with a Rolling Daily Spread Bet if you Roll a bet over to the next day you may incur a charge or income for each day that the trade is continued. To learn more please read: Rolling Daily Spread Betting Charges.

Using Shares Spread Betting Prices



Vodafone Example

The current price of the Vodafone Rolling Daily market is 180.0p - 180.3p with FinancialSpreads.com.

Like the majority of leading equities listed on the stock exchanges, investors can spread bet on the Vodafone shares to rise or fall in value. With this Vodafone Rolling Daily market, you can place a spread bet on:

a) Vodafone shares to move higher than 180.3p, or
b) Vodafone shares to move lower than 180.0p.

Note that with the Vodafone market you trade in £X per penny, where a penny is 1p of Vodafone share price movement. As a brief example, if you invested £10 per penny and the Vodafone share price moves 5p then that would make a difference to your profits/losses of £50.

Vodafone Shares Trading Example

For example, letís assume you see the live price on an online spread betting website and it gives a spread of 180.0p - 180.3p. So, after your market research, you might think that the Vodafone shares will move higher than 180.3p. This implies:
  • You think the Vodafone share price will increase
  • Therefore, you want to go long of the market at 180.3p and you risk £15 per penny
  • The price of the shares rises and the spread becomes 185.7p - 186.0p
  • Therefore, you can choose to take your profit and settle your position by selling at 185.7p
  • Initial buy price = 180.3p
  • P&L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
  • P&L = (185.7p - 180.3p) x £15 per penny
  • P&L = 5.4p x £15 per penny
  • P&L = £81.00 profit
Spread bets donít always go to plan. If the trade did not move as predicted, and had the Vodafone shares decreased in value, with the spread decreasing to 174.4p - 174.7p, then you may choose to close your bet and prevent any more losses. To do this you would sell at 174.4p.
  • Price you bought the spread bet at: 180.3p
  • P&L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
  • P&L = (174.4p - 180.3p) x £15 per penny
  • P&L = -5.9p x £15 per penny
  • P&L = -£88.50 loss
Note that with a Rolling Daily Financial Spread Bet if you Roll a bet over to the subsequent day you may incur a charge or income for each day that the trade is still open. For more information read: Rolling Daily Spread Betting Charges.

GBP/USD Example

At the moment, the price of the GBP/USD Rolling Daily market is $1.60500 - $1.60520 with spread trading firms such as Inter Trader.

Like the majority of forex rates, investors can bet on the GBP/USD pair to go up or go down. With this GBP/USD Rolling Daily market, an investor can spread bet on:

a) The GBP/USD rate to move higher than $1.60520, or
b) The GBP/USD rate to move lower than $1.60500.

Note that with the GBP/USD market you trade in £X per point, where a point is $0.00010 of the GBP/USD exchange rate movement. As an example, if you had a stake of £4 per point and the GBP/USD market were to move by $0.00080 then your profits/losses would change by £32. $0.00080 = 8 points. 8 points x £4 per point = £32.

GBP/USD Foreign Exchange Trading Example

  1. You believe the GBP/USD exchange rate should rise
  2. Therefore, you decide you are going to go long of the market at $1.60520 and you invest £2 per point
  3. The FX rate rises with the spread becoming $1.61002 - $1.61022
  4. As a result, you can choose to take a profit and settle your position. To do this you would sell at $1.61002
  5. Your initial buy price = $1.60520
  6. P&L = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
  7. P&L = ($1.61002 - $1.60520) x £2 per point
  8. P&L = $0.00482 x £2 per point
  9. P&L = 48.2 points x £2 per point
  10. P&L = £96.40 profit
Investments donít always go to plan. If the trade did not work as predicted, and had the GBP/USD FX pair decreased, with the market going down to $1.59958 - $1.59978, then you may choose to settle your bet and prevent any further losses. In order to do this you would sell at $1.59958.
  1. Initial buy price: $1.60520
  2. P&L = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
  3. P&L = ($1.59958 - $1.60520) x £2 per point
  4. P&L = -$0.00562 x £2 per point
  5. P&L = -56.2 points x £2 per point
