A Guide to Spread Betting on AT&T

For example, let's assume that you go on the FinancialSpreads website and see the live quote is:

  AT&T Rolling Cash Sell

3458.0
Buy

3463.0


Here's a brief example of how it works:

The Spread Betting MarketAT&T Rolling Cash
The Quote3458.0¢ - 3463.0¢
This Means ThatNow you can bet on the AT&T Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 3463.0¢, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 3458.0¢

This spread betting market is a 'Rolling' market so it does not have an expiry date. If you don't close your trade and the trading session ends then your position will roll over into the next session.

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will normally either have to pay or receive interest for overnight financing based on whether you are speculating on the market to move higher or lower. For additional information see Rolling Spread Betting.
Units TradedSpread betting trades on the AT&T market are priced in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if AT&T moves 35.0¢ then you would win / lose 35 multiples of your stake.
Trade SizeYou work out how much you want to stake per cent, e.g. £1 per cent, £5 per cent, £10 per cent etc.
Staking ExampleIf, for example, you decided on a stake of £3 per cent and AT&T changes by 27.0¢, you would win/lose £3 per cent x 27.0¢ = £81.

Lock in a Profit? You could decide to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your trade to lock in your profit. In this example you opt to settle your trade and sell at 3516.7¢.
Your P/L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(3516.7¢ - 3463.0¢) x £2 per cent
53.7¢ x £2 per cent
Your P/L = £107.40 profit
 
Example 2
AT&T pushes lower and the market is revised and moved to 3416.2¢ - 3421.2¢. I.e. you'd see:   3416.2   3421.2

-46.8¢ x £2 per cent
Your P/L = -£93.60 loss
