Morgan Stanley Spread Betting Example

Morgan Stanley Spread Bets
If you decided to spread bet on equities such as Morgan Stanley then, looking at a website like IG Index, you may find a quote of $31.70 – $31.75.

Therefore, you could speculate on Morgan Stanley to move above $31.75 or move below $31.70.

With spread trading, investors speculate on every unit the market increases or decreases. For the Morgan Stanley market a unit is $0.01 of the US equity’s price movement.

Let’s say, for this example, you want to stake £3 for every cent Morgan Stanley increases or decreases.


Spread Betting on the Market to Go Up

If you were to go long of Morgan Stanley at $31.75 and the US equity increased then the quote could change to $32.13 – $32.18. If so, you could close your position for a profit at $32.13.

Your Profit/Loss = (final price of the market – opening price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($32.13 – $31.75) x £3 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = $0.38 x £3 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = £114 profit

Financial markets also move down, if the US equity were to fall to, for example, $31.42 – $31.47, you could close your position to restrict your losses. If that were to happen, you’d sell the market at $31.42.

Therefore, with the same £3 per cent stake:

Your Profit/Loss = (final price of the market – opening price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($31.42 – $31.75) x £3 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = -$0.33 x £3 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = -£99 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Go Down

One benefit of using a spread bet is that investors can sell the markets.

This market was initially priced at $31.70 – $31.75.

If you shorted Morgan Stanley at $31.70 and the US equity fell then the quote might change to $31.31 – $31.36. Therefore, you might want to close your position for a profit at $31.36.

Your Profit/Loss = (opening price of the market – final price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($31.70 – $31.36) x £3 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = $0.34 x £3 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = £102 profit

However, if the US equity had moved up to, for example, $31.95 – $32.00, you may want to close your trade to limit your losses. In that case, you would buy the market at $32.00.

With the same £3 per cent stake:

Your Profit/Loss = (opening price of the market – final price of the market) x stake per cent
Your Profit/Loss = ($31.70 – $32.00) x £3 per cent stake
Your Profit/Loss = -$0.30 x £3 per cent
Your Profit/Loss = -£90 loss
