Here is a brief guide to how the market works...

The MarketAdmiral Rolling Cash

How the Spread WorksNow you can spread bet on the Admiral Rolling Cash market to push:

  Spread Betting Higher than 1465.0p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 1462.0p

This is a 'Rolling' trade which means that there is no closing date for this spread bet. If you don't close your position and the session ends then your position will automatically roll over to the next session.

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will either receive or be charged a small fee for overnight financing based on whether you are betting on the market to go up or down. For more information see Rolling Spread Betting.

53.5p x £2 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = £107.00 profit
