Financial Spread Betting on Bunzl

Let's suppose you sign into the Financial Spreads site and see the current price is:

  Bunzl Rolling Cash Sell

1881.7
Buy

1885.3


This is an example of how it works...

The Spread Betting MarketBunzl Rolling Cash
Quote (The Spread)1881.7p - 1885.3p
How the Market WorksYou can spread bet on the Bunzl Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 1885.3p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 1881.7p

This is a Rolling spread bet and so there is no expiry date for this trade. If you haven't closed your position and the session ends then your position will automatically roll over into the next trading day.

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will normally either receive or pay interest for overnight financing based upon whether you are betting on the market to rise or fall. For more information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Traded UnitsSpread bets on the Bunzl market are priced in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Bunzl moves by 30p then you would win / lose 30 multiples of your stake.
Stake (Trade Size)You choose how much you want to risk per penny, e.g. £2 per penny, £5 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Quick Staking ExampleAs an example, if you chose a stake of £4 per penny and Bunzl changes by 23p, you would lose / win £4 per penny x 23p = £92.


Worked Spread Betting Example - Buying Bunzl

Spread betting on the equity to go higher

You Work Out Whether to Go Long or Short Bunzl to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 1885.3p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 1881.7p?

You Might Decide to Buy   Spread Betting Higher than 1885.3p
You Decide How Much to Risk, Let's Say You Opt For £4 per penny
So Now What Happens?
  • You will make £4 for every penny Bunzl moves higher than 1885.3p
  • You will lose £4 for each penny Bunzl pushes lower than 1885.3p
If You Go Long With a Spread Bet Your Profits (or Losses) = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Scenario 1
Bunzl increases and the market is adjusted to 1927.7p - 1931.3p:   1927.7   1931.3
Time to Take Your Profit? You can choose to let your position run or close it, i.e. close your position for a profit. In this instance you opt to close your bet and sell the market at 1927.7p.
Your Profits (or Losses) = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(1927.7p - 1885.3p) x £4 per penny
42.4p x £4 per penny
Your Profits (or Losses) = £169.60 profit
 
Scenario 2
Bunzl decreases and the spread trading market is revised and changes to 1837.2p - 1840.8p. Therefore Financial Spreads would show:   1837.2   1840.8
Close and Limit Your Loss? At this point, you can choose to leave your position open or close it, i.e. close your position and restrict your loss. In this instance you opt to settle your bet by selling the market at 1837.2p.
Your Profits (or Losses) = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(1837.2p - 1885.3p) x £4 per penny
-48.1p x £4 per penny
Your Profits (or Losses) = -£192.40 loss

  Spread Betting Higher than 1885.3p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 1881.7p?

Now What?
  • You will lose £5 for each penny Bunzl pushes higher than 1881.7p
  • You will make £5 for each penny Bunzl decreases below 1881.7p
When You Sell a Market Your Profits (or Losses) = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake

Take a Profit? You could choose to keep your bet open or close it, i.e. close your trade to lock in a profit. In this example you decide to settle your position by buying the market at 1854.2p.
Your Profits (or Losses) = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake

Your Profits (or Losses) = £137.50 profit
