How to Spread Bet on Deutsche Telekom

Let's assume you go on the Financial Spreads site and the live quote is:

  Deutsche Telekom Rolling Cash Sell

1594.4
Buy

1599.1


This is a guide to how it works

Market:Deutsche Telekom Rolling Cash
The Price:1594.4c - 1599.1c
How the Market Works:Now you can bet on the Deutsche Telekom Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 1599.1c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 1594.4c

This spread betting market is a 'Rolling' market so it does not have a settlement date. If you don't close your position and the trading session ends then your position will roll over to the next trading day.

Note that if the trade is rolled over then you will normally either receive or pay a small fee for overnight financing depending on whether you are speculating on the market to go up or down. For additional information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Points (Units) Traded:Spread trades on the Deutsche Telekom market are made in £x per cent price movement.

Stake:You decide how much you are going to stake per cent, e.g. £1 per cent, £8 per cent, £10 per cent etc.
Staking Example:For example, if you chose a stake of £2 per cent and Deutsche Telekom moves by 27.0c, you would gain or lose £2 per cent x 27.0c = £54.
