  Carnival Rolling Cash Sell

2896.0
Buy

2902.0


This is a guide to how the market works

Spread Betting MarketCarnival Rolling Cash
Spread Trading Price2896.0p - 2902.0p
How the Trade WorksYou can spread bet on the Carnival Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Above 2902.0p, or
  Spread Betting Below 2896.0p

This market is a 'Rolling' market so it does not have an expiry date. If you decide not to close your position and the trading session ends then your trade will roll over into the next trading day.

Note that if a trade does roll over then you will either be credited or debited for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to go up or down. For further information also see Rolling Spread Bets.

Let's Say You Want to Buy   Spread Betting Above 2902.0p
You Select Your Stake Size, Let's Assume You Select £2 per penny
So What Next?
  • You gain £2 for every penny Carnival pushes higher than 2902.0p
  • Your spread bet loses £2 for each penny Carnival goes lower than 2902.0p
If You Buy a Market Your P&L = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Trading Situation 1
Carnival pushes higher and the spread betting market is revised and set at 2965.8p - 2971.8p, so you'd see:   2965.8   2971.8
Take a Profit? At this point, you could decide to leave your position open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to lock in your profit. In this example you decide to close your trade and sell at 2965.8p.
Your P&L = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(2965.8p - 2902.0p) x £2 per penny
63.8p x £2 per penny
Your P&L = £127.60 profit
 
Trading Situation 2
Carnival falls and the financial spread betting market changes to 2825.1p - 2831.1p. So you would see this on Financial Spreads:   2825.1   2831.1
Restrict the Loss? You may opt to let your position run or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to restrict your losses. In this case you opt to settle your position by selling the market at 2825.1p.
Your P&L = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(2825.1p - 2902.0p) x £2 per penny
-76.9p x £2 per penny
Your P&L = -£153.80 loss
