How to Financial Spread Bet on British Land

For example, let's suppose that you sign into FinancialSpreads.com and the current price is:

  British Land Rolling Cash Sell

828.4
Buy

830.1


Here is an example of how it works...

Spread Betting Market:British Land Rolling Cash
Price (Spread):828.4p - 830.1p
How the Market Works:Now you can trade on the British Land Rolling Cash market to move:

  Spread Betting Above 830.1p, or
  Spread Betting Below 828.4p

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

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will either receive or pay interest for overnight financing based on whether you are betting on the market to go up or down. For more details also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Points (Units) Traded:Financial spread bets on the British Land market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if British Land changes by 45p then you would win or lose 45 multiples of your stake.
Stake (Trade Size):You decide your stake per penny, e.g. £2 per penny, £8 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Short Staking Example:For example, if you had a stake of £3 per penny and British Land moves by 27p, you would lose/win £3 per penny x 27p = £81.


Spread Betting Example - Going Long of British Land

Spread trading on the UK share to increase

You Now Select Whether to Buy or Sell: British Land moving:

  Spread Betting Above 830.1p? or
  Spread Betting Below 828.4p?

Let's Assume You Go Long:   Spread Betting Above 830.1p
You Choose Your Stake, Opting for: £10 per penny
So What Happens Next?
  • You win £10 for every penny British Land rises higher than 830.1p
  • You will lose £10 for each penny British Land falls lower than 830.1p
When Buying a Market Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Example 1
British Land pushes higher and the market adjusts and moves to 848.8p - 850.5p, i.e. you would see:   848.8   850.5
Lock in a Profit? At this point, you could opt to leave your spread bet open or close it, i.e. close your trade to lock in your profit. In this instance you opt to settle your bet by selling at 848.8p.
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
(848.8p - 830.1p) x £10 per penny
18.7p x £10 per penny
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = £187.00 profit
 
Example 2
British Land goes lower and the financial spread betting market is adjusted and moved to 813.5p - 815.2p. So you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   813.5   815.2
Time to Restrict Your Loss? You can decide to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet and restrict your losses. In this case you choose to settle your trade by selling the market at 813.5p.
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
(813.5p - 830.1p) x £10 per penny
-16.6p x £10 per penny
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = -£166.00 loss
