How to Spread Bet on Aviva

Let's suppose you look at Financial Spreads and see the live quote is:

  Aviva Rolling Cash Sell

540.62
Buy

541.88


This is a brief example of how it works...

Spread Trading Market:Aviva Rolling Cash
Price (Spread):540.62p - 541.88p
What This Means:You can take a position on the Aviva Rolling Cash market going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 541.88p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 540.62p

This is a Rolling spread bet and so there is no final closing date. If you decide not to close your trade and the session ends then your trade will automatically roll over to the next session.

Note that if the trade is rolled over then you will either receive or be charged a small fee for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to go up or down. For additional information also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Units (Points) Traded:Spread trades on the Aviva market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Aviva moves 40p then you would win / lose 40 multiples of your stake.
Stake Size per Unit:You decide how much you would like to trade per penny, e.g. £3 per penny, £8 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Brief Example:If, as an example, you decided on a stake of £5 per penny and Aviva moves by 27p, you would lose or win £5 per penny x 27p = £135.


Worked Trading Example - Taking a Bullish View of Aviva

Spread betting on the UK share to move up

You Now Consider Whether to Buy or Sell: Aviva to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 541.88p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 540.62p?

Let's Assume You Choose to Buy:   Spread Betting Higher than 541.88p
You Select Your Stake Size, Choosing: £10 per penny
So Now What Happens?
  • You gain £10 for every penny Aviva increases above 541.88p
  • Your spread bet loses £10 for each penny Aviva decreases below 541.88p
When Speculating on a Market to Increase Your P/L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 1
Aviva increases and the spread betting market is moved to 560.85p - 562.11p. So you would see this on Financial Spreads:   560.85   562.11
Take a Profit? At this point, you may choose to leave your spread bet open or close it for a profit. For this example, you opt to close your bet by selling the market at 560.85p.
Your P/L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(560.85p - 541.88p) x £10 per penny
18.97p x £10 per penny
Your P/L = £189.70 profit
 
Trading Example 2
Aviva goes lower and the market is adjusted and moved to 525.62p - 526.88p. Therefore you'd see:   525.62   526.88
Close and Limit the Loss? You can opt to leave your trade open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to limit your losses. In this instance you decide to close your trade by selling at 525.62p.
Your P/L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(525.62p - 541.88p) x £10 per penny
-16.26p x £10 per penny
Your P/L = -£162.60 loss

So What Now?
  • Your spread bet loses £5 for each penny Aviva increases higher than 540.62p
  • You gain £5 for each penny Aviva goes lower than 540.62p
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Go Down Your P/L = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 3

Your P/L = £156.10 profit
