Financial Spread Betting on BBVA

For example, let's suppose you log on to the Financial Spreads site and the trading platform is showing a quote of:

  BBVA Rolling Cash Sell

848.0
Buy

850.1


Here is a brief example of how the market works...

Spread Trading MarketBBVA Rolling Cash
Spread Betting Price848.0c - 850.1c
This Means ThatNow you can spread bet on the BBVA Rolling Cash market to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 850.1c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 848.0c

This is a 'Rolling' trade and so there is no closing date for this trade. If you decide not to close your trade and the trading session ends then your trade will automatically roll over into the next trading session.

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will normally either receive or be charged interest for overnight financing based on the direction of your position. For further information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Points (Units) TradedBets on the BBVA market are priced in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if BBVA changes by 35.0c then you would lose/win 35 multiples of your stake.
Stake per UnitYou choose how much you would like to risk per cent, e.g. £3 per cent, £4 per cent, £15 per cent etc.
Staking ExampleFor example, if you went with a stake of £2 per cent and BBVA moves by 22.0c, you would lose or win £2 per cent x 22.0c = £44.

Let's Say You Want to Buy   Spread Betting Higher than 850.1c

So What Next?
  • You will make £4 for each cent BBVA rises higher than 850.1c

Lock in a Profit? You can choose to let your trade run or close it and lock in your profit. In this case you decide to settle your trade by selling at 885.0c.
Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
(885.0c - 850.1c) x £4 per cent
34.9c x £4 per cent
Your P&L = £139.60 profit
 
Trading Situation 2
BBVA drops and the market is adjusted to 820.3c - 822.4c, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   820.3   822.4
Limit Your Loss? At this point, you may opt to leave your position open or close it in order to restrict your loss. In this instance you opt to settle your bet by selling the market at 820.3c.
Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
(820.3c - 850.1c) x £4 per cent
