Disney Spread Betting Example

Disney Spread Bets
If you decide to spread bet on shares like Disney then, looking at a platform like FinancialSpreads.com, you’d find a quote of $86.55 – $86.64.

As a result, you can bet on Disney to go above $86.64 or go below $86.55.

With spread betting, investors speculate on every unit the market goes up or down. With the Disney market a unit is $0.01 of the US equity’s price movement.

For example, let’s say you want to trade £2 for every cent Disney goes up or down.


Buying – Speculating on the Market to Go Up

If you were to buy Disney at $86.64 and the US equity increased then the quote might change to $87.55 – $87.64. In that case, you could close your trade for a profit at $87.55.

Profit/Loss = (closing value of the market – opening value of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($87.55 – $86.64) x £2 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = $0.91 x £2 per cent
Profit/Loss = £182 profit

On the other hand, if the US equity were to fall to, for example, $85.81 – $85.90, you may decide to close your position to prevent further losses. If that were to happen, you would sell the market at $85.81.

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

Profit/Loss = (closing value of the market – opening value of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($85.81 – $86.64) x £2 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = -$0.83 x £2 per cent
Profit/Loss = -£166 loss


Selling – Speculating on the Market to Go Down

One benefit of placing a spread bet is that investors can short the markets, i.e. speculate that the markets will fall.

The original market was priced at $86.55 – $86.64.

If you short sold Disney at $86.55 and the US equity fell then the quote might be re-priced at $85.64 – $85.73. Therefore, you might decide to close your trade for a profit by buying at $85.73.

Profit/Loss = (opening value of the market – closing value of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($86.55 – $85.73) x £2 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = $0.82 x £2 per cent
Profit/Loss = £164 profit

Markets do of course rise, if the US equity had moved up to, for example, $87.21 – $87.30, you might want to close your position to restrict your losses. If that happened, you would buy the market at $87.30.

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

Profit/Loss = (opening value of the market – closing value of the market) x stake per cent
Profit/Loss = ($86.55 – $87.30) x £2 per cent stake
Profit/Loss = -$0.75 x £2 per cent
Profit/Loss = -£150 loss
