A Guide to Financial Spread Betting on AXA

Let's suppose you log on to the FinancialSpreads site and see a quote of:

  AXA Rolling Cash Sell

2095.4
Buy

2100.6


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

Market:AXA Rolling Cash
Spread Trading Price:2095.4c - 2100.6c
How the Spread Works:You can take a position on the AXA Rolling Cash market to push:

  Spread Betting Above 2100.6c, or
  Spread Betting Below 2095.4c

This is a 'Rolling' spread bet which means that there is no final closing date for this trade. If you decide not to close your position and the trading 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 be credited or charged for overnight financing based on whether you are betting on the market to rise or fall. For more details also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Units (Points) Traded:Trades on the AXA market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if AXA moves by 45.0c then you would lose or gain 45 multiples of your stake.
Stake Size per Unit:You work out how much you would like to risk per cent, e.g. £1 per cent, £5 per cent, £20 per cent etc.
Simplified Trading Exercise:If you went with a stake of £4 per cent and AXA moves 23.0c, you would lose or win £4 per cent x 23.0c = £92.


Worked Trading Example - Taking a Bullish View of AXA

Spread trading on the European share to go up

You Now Select Whether to Go Long or Short: AXA going:

  Spread Betting Above 2100.6c? or
  Spread Betting Below 2095.4c?

You Might Choose to Buy:   Spread Betting Above 2100.6c
You Decide Your Stake Size, Opting for: £4 per cent
Now What Happens?
  • You make a gain of £4 for every cent AXA goes higher than 2100.6c
  • You lose £4 for each cent AXA pushes lower than 2100.6c
When Betting on a Market to Go Up Your P/L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Situation 1
AXA rises and the market adjusts and moves to 2142.6c - 2147.8c. Therefore you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   2142.6   2147.8
Close for a Profit? You can decide to keep your spread bet open or close it, i.e. close your position to lock in your profit. For this example, you opt to settle your bet and sell the market at 2142.6c.
Your P/L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
(2142.6c - 2100.6c) x £4 per cent
42.0c x £4 per cent
Your P/L = £168.00 profit
 
Trading Situation 2
AXA slips and the spread trading market is revised and set at 2052.3c - 2057.5c, therefore Financial Spreads would show:   2052.3   2057.5
Close and Limit Your Loss? At this point, you may choose to keep your trade open or close it and restrict your loss. For this example, you opt to close your trade by selling the market at 2052.3c.
Your P/L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
(2052.3c - 2100.6c) x £4 per cent
-48.3c x £4 per cent
Your P/L = -£193.20 loss


Trading Example - Going Short of AXA

Spread betting on the European share to move down

You Now Work Out Whether to Go Long or Short: AXA to move:

  Spread Betting Above 2100.6c? or
  Spread Betting Below 2095.4c?

Let's Assume You Choose to Sell:   Spread Betting Below 2095.4c
You Decide Your Stake, Selecting: £3 per cent
So What Next?
  • You lose £3 for each cent AXA pushes higher than 2095.4c
  • You make a gain of £3 for each cent AXA decreases lower than 2095.4c
If You Are Speculating on a Market to Go Down Your P/L = (Opening Price - Settlement Price) x stake
 
Trading Situation 3
AXA moves lower and the financial spread betting market is adjusted and moved to 2054.6c - 2059.8c. Therefore you'd see:   2054.6   2059.8
Lock in a Profit? At this point, you may opt to keep your position open or close it in order to take a profit. In this case you choose to close your bet and buy the market at 2059.8c.
Your P/L = (Opening Price - Settlement Price) x stake
(2095.4c - 2059.8c) x £3 per cent
35.6c x £3 per cent
Your P/L = £106.80 profit
 
Trading Situation 4
AXA moves higher and the spread betting market is adjusted to 2131.2c - 2136.4c. So you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   2131.2   2136.4
Time to Limit Your Loss?You could opt to leave your position open or close it, i.e. close your position and restrict your loss. In this example you decide to settle your position by buying at 2136.4c.
Your P/L = (Opening Price - Settlement Price) x stake
(2095.4c - 2136.4c) x £3 per cent
-41.0c x £3 per cent
Your P/L = -£123.00 loss
