Lloyds Spread Betting Example

Lloyds Spread Bets
If you are interested in financial spread betting on equities such as Lloyds then, looking at a platform like FinancialSpreads.com, you would currently get a price of 72.804p – 72.896p.

As a result, you could speculate on Lloyds to go above 72.896p or go below 72.804p.

When placing a spread bet, investors trade on every unit the market increases or decreases; in the case of the Lloyds market a unit is 1p of the share’s price movement.

Let’s say you choose to trade £20 for every penny Lloyds increases or decreases.


Spread Betting on the Market to Increase

If you were to go long of Lloyds at 72.896p and the shares increased then the spread could change to 77.270p – 77.362p. If so, you could close your position for a profit by selling at 77.270p.

Profits (or Losses) = (closing level of the market – opening level of the market) x stake per penny
Profits (or Losses) = (77.270p – 72.896p) x £20 per penny stake
Profits (or Losses) = 4.374p x £20 per penny
Profits (or Losses) = £87.48 profit

Markets do of course fall, if the shares had decreased to, as an example, 67.793p – 67.885p, you may decide to close your trade to limit your losses. If that happened, you would sell at 67.793p.

Therefore, with the same £20 per penny stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (closing level of the market – opening level of the market) x stake per penny
Profits (or Losses) = (67.793p – 72.896p) x £20 per penny stake
Profits (or Losses) = -5.103p x £20 per penny
Profits (or Losses) = -£102.06 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Decrease

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

If you recall, initially the market was priced at 72.804p – 72.896p.

If you short sold Lloyds at 72.804p and the shares went down then you might see the price drop to 67.907p – 67.999p. Assuming this was the case, you could close your trade at 67.999p.

Profits (or Losses) = (opening level of the market – closing level of the market) x stake per penny
Profits (or Losses) = (72.804p – 67.999p) x £20 per penny stake
Profits (or Losses) = 4.805p x £20 per penny
Profits (or Losses) = £96.10 profit

However, if the shares were to rise to, as an example, 78.318p – 78.410p, you could close your position to prevent further losses. If this were the case, you’d buy at 78.410p.

So, with the same £20 per penny stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (opening level of the market – closing level of the market) x stake per penny
Profits (or Losses) = (72.804p – 78.410p) x £20 per penny stake
Profits (or Losses) = -5.606p x £20 per penny
Profits (or Losses) = -£112.12 loss
