Baidu Spread Betting Example

Baidu Spread Bets
If you are interested in spread betting on US equities such as Baidu then, on visiting a platform like InterTrader, you’d see a price of $216.20 – $217.08.

This means you can speculate on Baidu to move above $217.08 or move below $216.20.

If you are spread trading, you speculate on every unit the market increases or decreases. With the Baidu market a unit is $0.01 of the stock’s price movement.

For example, let’s say you decide to stake £1 for every cent Baidu increases or decreases.


Spread Betting on the Market to Increase

If you were to buy Baidu at $217.08 and the stock went up then the spread could change to $218.56 – $219.44. Assuming this was the case, you might choose to close your bet for a profit by selling at $218.56.

Your Profit/Loss = (final price of the market – initial price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($218.56 – $217.08) x £1 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = $1.48 x £1 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = £148 profit

The markets do of course fall, if the stock had fallen to $215.45 – $216.33, you could close your trade to prevent further losses. If that happened, you would sell at $215.45.

Therefore, with the same £1 per cent stake:

Your Profit/Loss = (final price of the market – initial price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($215.45 – $217.08) x £1 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = -$1.63 x £1 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = -£163 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Decrease

One advantage of spread betting is that you can short the markets, i.e. bet that the markets are going to fall.

When we began this example, the price was $216.20 – $217.08.

If you were to go short of Baidu at $216.20 and the stock went down then the market might be re-priced at $213.70 – $214.58. In that case, you could close your bet by buying at $214.58.

Your Profit/Loss = (initial price of the market – final price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($216.20 – $214.58) x £1 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = $1.62 x £1 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = £162 profit

Of course, if the stock had moved up to $217.10 – $217.98, you might decide to close your bet to restrict your losses. If this were the case, you’d buy the market at $217.98.

So, with the same £1 per cent stake:

Your Profit/Loss = (initial price of the market – final price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($216.20 – $217.98) x £1 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = -$1.78 x £1 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = -£178 loss
