Twitter Spread Bets

Twitter Financial Spread Betting Example



Should you decide to spread bet on US shares such as Twitter then, on visiting a platform like FinancialSpreads.com, at the time of writing you'd find a price of $44.23 - $44.31.

Therefore, you could speculate on Twitter to move higher than $44.31 or to move lower than $44.23.

With spread betting, you speculate on every unit the market rises or falls. With the Twitter market a unit is $0.01 of the equity's price movement.

So let's say you decide to trade 3 for every cent Twitter increases or decreases.


Buying - Spread Betting on the Market to Increase



If you bought Twitter at $44.31 and the equity rose then the quote might become $44.62 - $44.70. If this were the case, you might decide to close your bet for a profit by selling at $44.62.

Profit/Loss = (settlement level of the market - initial level of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($44.62 - $44.31) x 3 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = $0.31 x 3 per cent
Profit/Loss = 93 profit

Markets do of course fall, if the equity were to fall to, for example, $43.96 - $44.04, you may want to close your bet to limit your losses. In that case, you would sell at $43.96.

You would do this with the same 3 per cent stake:

Profit/Loss = (settlement level of the market - initial level of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($43.96 - $44.31) x 3 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = -$0.35 x 3 per cent
Profit/Loss = -105 loss


Selling - Spread Betting on the Market to Decrease



One of the benefits of placing a spread bet is that you can short the markets, i.e. bet that the markets will drop.

At the start of the example, the market was priced at $44.23 - $44.31.

If you shorted Twitter at $44.23 and the equity went down then you might see the price move to $43.89 - $43.97. Assuming this was the case, you could close your trade at $43.97.

Profit/Loss = (initial level of the market - settlement level of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($44.23 - $43.97) x 3 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = $0.26 x 3 per cent
Profit/Loss = 78 profit

On the other hand, if the equity had moved up to, for example, $44.45 - $44.53, you might want to close your bet to restrict your losses. If so, you would buy the market at $44.53.

With the same 3 per cent stake:

Profit/Loss = (initial level of the market - settlement level of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($44.23 - $44.53) x 3 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = -$0.30 x 3 per cent
Profit/Loss = -90 loss
