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

  Carrefour Rolling Cash Sell

2898.1
Buy

2905.4


This is a brief guide to how it works:

The Spread Betting MarketCarrefour Rolling Cash
The Quote2898.1c - 2905.4c
How the Trade WorksNow you can bet on the Carrefour Rolling Cash market going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 2905.4c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 2898.1c

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

If the trade is rolled over then you will normally either be charged or receive a small fee for overnight financing depending on whether you are speculating on the market to rise or fall. For more details see Rolling Spread Betting.
Traded UnitsSpread betting trades on the Carrefour market are priced in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Carrefour moves 45.0c then you would lose / win 45 multiples of your stake.
StakeYou work out how much you would like to stake per cent, e.g. £1 per cent, £5 per cent, £15 per cent etc.
Brief Staking ExerciseIf you have a stake of £4 per cent and Carrefour moves by 30.0c, you would lose or gain £4 per cent x 30.0c = £120.


Spread Betting Example - Taking a Long Position on Carrefour

Online spread betting on the share to go up in value

You Now Consider Whether to Go Long or Short Carrefour to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 2905.4c? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 2898.1c?

Let's Assume You Go Long   Spread Betting Higher than 2905.4c
You Decide How Much to Risk, Selecting £4 per cent
So What Next?
  • You gain £4 for every cent Carrefour pushes above 2905.4c
  • You will make a loss of £4 for each cent Carrefour falls below 2905.4c
If You Are Betting on a Market to Increase Your P&L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 1
Carrefour pushes higher and the spread trading market is adjusted to 2949.0c - 2956.3c, so you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   2949.0   2956.3
Lock in a Profit? At this point, you could opt to keep your position open or close it, i.e. close your trade to lock in your profit. In this instance you decide to settle your position by selling at 2949.0c.
Your P&L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(2949.0c - 2905.4c) x £4 per cent
43.6c x £4 per cent
Your P&L = £174.40 profit
 
Trading Example 2
Carrefour moves lower and the financial spread betting market is revised and moved to 2856.0c - 2863.3c, therefore Financial Spreads would show:   2856.0   2863.3
Time to Restrict the Loss? You could choose to let your spread bet run or close it, i.e. close your spread bet and limit your loss. In this instance you choose to close your trade and sell the market at 2856.0c.
Your P&L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(2856.0c - 2905.4c) x £4 per cent
-49.4c x £4 per cent
Your P&L = -£197.60 loss

Financial spread betting on the share to decrease

You Now Work Out Whether to Buy or Sell Carrefour moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 2905.4c? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 2898.1c?

Let's Assume You Sell   Spread Betting Lower than 2898.1c
You Choose Your Stake Size, Let's Assume You Choose £5 per cent
Now What Happens?
  • You will make a loss of £5 for each cent Carrefour rises above 2898.1c
  • You gain £5 for each cent Carrefour decreases lower than 2898.1c
If You Are Speculating on a Market to Decrease Your P&L = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 3
Carrefour pushes lower and the spread betting market is moved to 2862.5c - 2869.8c. Therefore Financial Spreads would show:   2862.5   2869.8
Time to Lock in Your Profit? You could decide to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your position for a profit. For this example, you choose to close your trade and buy the market at 2869.8c.
Your P&L = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
(2898.1c - 2869.8c) x £5 per cent
28.3c x £5 per cent
Your P&L = £141.50 profit
 
Trading Example 4
Carrefour rises and the market is revised and is set at 2922.8c - 2930.1c, therefore you would see:   2922.8   2930.1
