Apple Spread Bets

Apple Financial Spread Betting Example



If you're thinking about financial spread betting on US equities like Apple then, looking at a platform like InterTrader.com, you would currently find a price of $96.02 - $96.14.

As a result, you could bet on Apple to move higher than $96.14 or to move lower than $96.02.

If you are spread trading, you speculate on every unit the market goes up or down. With the Apple market a unit is $0.01 of the US share's price movement.

So for this example, let's say you want to bet 2 for every cent Apple increases or decreases.


Spread Betting on the Market to Rise



If you bought Apple at $96.14 and the US shares increased then the quote might become $96.81 - $96.93. In that case, you could close your position at $96.81.

Your P&L = (final price of the market - initial price of the market) x stake per cent
Your P&L = ($96.81 - $96.14) x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = $0.67 x 2 per cent
Your P&L = 134 profit

Markets can also fall, if the US shares had moved down to, for example, $95.56 - $95.68, you could choose to close your trade to restrict your losses. If that happened, you would sell back at $95.56.

With the same 2 per cent stake:

Your P&L = (final price of the market - initial price of the market) x stake per cent
Your P&L = ($95.56 - $96.14) x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = -$0.58 x 2 per cent
Your P&L = -116 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Fall



A major advantage of spread betting is that you can short sell the markets, i.e. bet that the markets are going to drop.

At the beginning of this example, the market was $96.02 - $96.14.

If you short sold Apple at $96.02 and the US shares fell then the quote might be re-priced at $95.30 - $95.42. Therefore, you could close your trade for a profit at $95.42.

Your P&L = (initial price of the market - final price of the market) x stake per cent
Your P&L = ($96.02 - $95.42) x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = $0.60 x 2 per cent
Your P&L = 120 profit

However, if the US shares were to rise to $96.42 - $96.54, you may decide to close your bet to prevent further losses. If so, you'd buy the market at $96.54.

You would close your bet with the same 2 per cent stake:

Your P&L = (initial price of the market - final price of the market) x stake per cent
Your P&L = ($96.02 - $96.54) x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = -$0.52 x 2 per cent
Your P&L = -104 loss
