Chevron Spread Betting Example

Chevron Spread Bets
If you are interested in financial spread betting on stocks such as Chevron then, on visiting a company like FinancialSpreads.com, at the moment you’d see a quote of $127.33 – $127.49.

That means you could speculate on Chevron to go above $127.49 or go below $127.33.

With spread betting, you speculate on every unit the market increases or decreases; in the case of the Chevron market a unit is $0.01 of the US equity’s price movement.

Let’s say, for this instance, you choose to stake £2 for every cent Chevron moves up or down.


Speculating on the Market to Go Up

If you were to buy Chevron at $127.49 and the US equity increased then the price could move to $128.19 – $128.35. If so, you might decide to close your trade for a profit at $128.19.

Your Profits (or Losses) = (settlement value of the market – opening value of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = ($128.19 – $127.49) x £2 per cent stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = $0.70 x £2 per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = £140 profit

The markets can of course fall, if the US equity had fallen to, as an example, $126.71 – $126.87, you could close your bet to restrict your losses. If this were the case, you would sell at $126.71.

So, with the same £2 per cent stake:

Your Profits (or Losses) = (settlement value of the market – opening value of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = ($126.71 – $127.49) x £2 per cent stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = -$0.78 x £2 per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = -£156 loss


Speculating on the Market to Go Down

One of the advantages of spread trading is that investors can go short of the markets, i.e. bet that the markets are going to drop.

At the beginning of this example, the price was $127.33 – $127.49.

If you went short of Chevron at $127.33 and the US equity went down then the quote might be re-priced at $126.57 – $126.73. If that happened, you could close your position for a profit at $126.73.

Your Profits (or Losses) = (opening value of the market – settlement value of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = ($127.33 – $126.73) x £2 per cent stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = $0.60 x £2 per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = £120 profit

However, if the US equity were to rise up to $127.83 – $127.99, you may decide to close your trade to limit your losses. Assuming this was the case, you would buy at $127.99.

You would do this with the same £2 per cent stake:

Your Profits (or Losses) = (opening value of the market – settlement value of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = ($127.33 – $127.99) x £2 per cent stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = -$0.66 x £2 per cent
Your Profits (or Losses) = -£132 loss
