  Bayer Rolling Cash Sell

12672.3
Buy

12702.7


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

Spread Trading MarketBayer Rolling Cash
Quote (The Spread)12672.3c - 12702.7c
This Means ThatYou can take a position on the Bayer Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 12702.7c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 12672.3c

This is a 'Rolling' spread betting market and so there is no expiry date for this spread bet. If you decide not to close your trade and the session ends then your position will automatically roll over to the next trading day.

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will normally either receive or pay a small fee for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to fall or rise. For further details see Rolling Spread Bets.
Trading UnitsBets on the Bayer market are priced in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Bayer moves 35.0c then you would win / lose 35 multiples of your stake.
Stake Size per UnitYou choose how much you want to trade per cent, e.g. £3 per cent, £5 per cent, £20 per cent etc.
Brief ExampleFor example, if your stake is £2 per cent and Bayer changes by 30.0c, you would win/lose £2 per cent x 30.0c = £60.
