A Guide to Spread Trading on BNP Paribas

As an example, let's say you sign into the Financial Spreads site and the live quote is:

  BNP Paribas Rolling Cash Sell

4858.6
Buy

4870.4


Here's an example of how it works.

Market:BNP Paribas Rolling Cash
The Spread Betting Quote:4858.6c - 4870.4c
What This Means:Now you can trade on the BNP Paribas Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 4870.4c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 4858.6c

This is a 'Rolling' trade which means that there is no final closing date. If you don't close your position and the trading session ends then your position will automatically roll over into the next trading day.

If a trade does roll over then you will normally either receive or be charged interest for overnight financing based upon the direction of your position. For more details see Rolling Spread Bets.
Traded Units:Bets on the BNP Paribas market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if BNP Paribas moves by 40.0c then you would lose or gain 40 multiples of your stake.
Stake:You decide how much you are going to trade per cent, e.g. £2 per cent, £5 per cent, £20 per cent etc.
Brief Example:As an example, if your stake is £5 per cent and BNP Paribas changes by 33.0c, you would lose/win £5 per cent x 33.0c = £165.
