Vodafone Spread Betting Example

Vodafone Spread Bets
If you wanted to spread bet on equities such as Vodafone then, looking at a site like IG, you might see a quote of 195.60p – 195.85p.

Therefore, you can speculate on Vodafone to go higher than 195.85p or to go lower than 195.60p.

With spread betting, investors speculate on every unit the market moves up or down. In this case, with the Vodafone market a unit is 1p of the UK share’s price movement.

As an example, let’s say you want to trade £15 for every penny Vodafone moves up or down.


Spread Betting on the Market to Increase

If you were to go long of Vodafone at 195.85p and the UK shares rose then the quote could change to 203.19p – 203.44p. If that were to happen, you might decide to close your position for a profit by selling at 203.19p.

P&L = (settlement level of the market – initial level of the market) x stake per penny
P&L = (203.19p – 195.85p) x £15 per penny stake
P&L = 7.34p x £15 per penny
P&L = £110.10 profit

Nevertheless, if the UK shares had moved down to, as an example, 189.48p – 189.73p, you might decide to close your bet to limit your losses. In that case, you would sell the market at 189.48p.

So, with the same £15 per penny stake:

P&L = (settlement level of the market – initial level of the market) x stake per penny
P&L = (189.48p – 195.85p) x £15 per penny stake
P&L = -6.37p x £15 per penny
P&L = -£95.55 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Decrease

One useful benefit of using a spread bet is that investors can sell the markets, i.e. bet that the markets will go down.

This example was initially priced at 195.60p – 195.85p.

If you were to go short of Vodafone at 195.60p and the UK shares fell then the quote might be re-priced at 186.91p – 187.16p. Therefore, you could close your bet by buying at 187.16p.

P&L = (initial level of the market – settlement level of the market) x stake per penny
P&L = (195.60p – 187.16p) x £15 per penny stake
P&L = 8.44p x £15 per penny
P&L = £126.60 profit

Conversely, if the UK shares increased to, for example, 202.66p – 202.91p, you could close your trade to restrict your losses. If this were the case, you would buy at 202.91p.

You would do this with the same £15 per penny stake:

P&L = (initial level of the market – settlement level of the market) x stake per penny
P&L = (195.60p – 202.91p) x £15 per penny stake
P&L = -7.31p x £15 per penny
P&L = -£109.65 loss
