You Now Work Out Whether to Buy or Sell Aggreko going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 1684.2p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 1679.8p?

Let's Say You Go Long   Spread Betting Higher than 1684.2p
You Choose How Much to Risk, Choosing £1 per penny
So Now What?
  • You will make a profit of £1 for each penny Aggreko goes higher than 1684.2p
  • You lose £1 for every penny Aggreko goes lower than 1684.2p
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Increase Your Profits (or Losses) = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Scenario 1
Aggreko goes higher and the spread trading market is revised and changes to 1758.3p - 1762.7p, i.e. the market moves to:   1758.3   1762.7
Take a Profit? At this point, you may opt to leave your bet open or close it to take a profit. For this example, you choose to close your trade by selling the market at 1758.3p.
Your Profits (or Losses) = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(1758.3p - 1684.2p) x £1 per penny
74.1p x £1 per penny
Your Profits (or Losses) = £74.10 profit
 
Scenario 2
Aggreko pushes lower and the spread betting market adjusts and moves to 1600.0p - 1604.4p, therefore you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   1600.0   1604.4
Close and Limit Your Loss? You can decide to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to limit your loss. In this case you decide to settle your bet and sell the market at 1600.0p.
Your Profits (or Losses) = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(1600.0p - 1684.2p) x £1 per penny
-84.2p x £1 per penny
Your Profits (or Losses) = -£84.20 loss
