McDonalds Spread Betting Example

McDonalds Spread Bets
If you are thinking about financial spread betting on US stocks like McDonalds then, looking at a trading platform like InterTrader, at the moment you’d get a price of $94.23 – $94.34.

This means you can speculate on McDonalds to move higher than $94.34 or to move lower than $94.23.

When placing a spread bet, investors trade on every unit the market goes up or down. Specifically, for the McDonalds market a unit is $0.01 of the equity’s price movement.

As an example, let’s say you want to trade £2 for every cent McDonalds increases or decreases.


Spread Betting on the Market to Rise

If you were to buy McDonalds at $94.34 and the equity went up then the quote might become $94.91 – $95.02. If that were to happen, you could close your position at $94.91.

Profits (or Losses) = (final price of the market – opening price of the market) x stake per cent
Profits (or Losses) = ($94.91 – $94.34) x £2 per cent stake
Profits (or Losses) = $0.57 x £2 per cent
Profits (or Losses) = £114 profit

On the other hand, if the equity decreased to, for example, $93.86 – $93.97, you could close your bet to limit your losses. If this were the case, you’d make a sell trade at $93.86.

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

Profits (or Losses) = (final price of the market – opening price of the market) x stake per cent
Profits (or Losses) = ($93.86 – $94.34) x £2 per cent stake
Profits (or Losses) = -$0.48 x £2 per cent
Profits (or Losses) = -£96 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Fall

One of the many benefits of spread betting is that investors can short sell the markets, i.e. bet that the markets will fall.

To start with, the market was priced at $94.23 – $94.34.

If you were to sell McDonalds at $94.23 and the equity fell then the quote could become $93.50 – $93.61. In that case, you might choose to close your bet for a profit by buying at $93.61.

Profits (or Losses) = (opening price of the market – final price of the market) x stake per cent
Profits (or Losses) = ($94.23 – $93.61) x £2 per cent stake
Profits (or Losses) = $0.62 x £2 per cent
Profits (or Losses) = £124 profit

The markets can of course rise, if the equity increased to $94.65 – $94.76, you may decide to close your position to restrict your losses. If that happened, you’d buy at $94.76.

Therefore, with the same £2 per cent stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (opening price of the market – final price of the market) x stake per cent
Profits (or Losses) = ($94.23 – $94.76) x £2 per cent stake
Profits (or Losses) = -$0.53 x £2 per cent
Profits (or Losses) = -£106 loss
