As an example, let's assume you sign into FinancialSpreads.com and the current price is:

1198.2
Buy

1200.8


Here's a guide to how it works...

MarketExperian Rolling Cash
Spread1198.2p - 1200.8p
This MeansYou can take a position on the Experian Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Above 1200.8p, or
  Spread Betting Below 1198.2p

This is a 'Rolling' spread betting market which means that there is no final closing date. If you don't close your trade and the session ends then your trade will roll over to the next trading session.

If a trade does roll over then you will normally either receive or be charged interest for overnight financing depending upon whether you are betting on the market to move lower or higher. For further information see Rolling Spread Bets.
Trading UnitsSpread bets on the Experian market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Experian moves by 30p then you would win / lose 30 times your stake.

Staking ExampleIf your stake is £3 per penny and Experian moves 21p, you would lose or gain £3 per penny x 21p = £63.

Online spread betting on the share to rise in value

You Decide to Go Long or Short Experian to move:

  Spread Betting Above 1200.8p? or
  Spread Betting Below 1198.2p?

Let's Assume You Want to Buy   Spread Betting Above 1200.8p
You Decide How Much to Risk, Choosing £3 per penny
So What Happens Now?
  • You win £3 for every penny Experian moves higher than 1200.8p
  • You will lose £3 for each penny Experian moves below 1200.8p
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Rise Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Trading Scenario 1
Experian goes higher and the spread betting market is revised and changes to 1242.8p - 1245.4p, so you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   1242.8   1245.4
Time to Take Your Profit? At this point, you may choose to keep your spread bet open or close it and take a profit. In this example you opt to settle your position and sell the market at 1242.8p.
Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
(1242.8p - 1200.8p) x £3 per penny
42.0p x £3 per penny
Your P&L = £126.00 profit
 
Trading Scenario 2
Experian decreases and the financial spread betting market is revised and set at 1152.8p - 1155.4p, i.e. you would see:   1152.8   1155.4
Time to Restrict Your Loss? At this point, you can decide to let your spread bet run or close it, i.e. close your trade and limit your loss. In this instance you decide to settle your position by selling the market at 1152.8p.
Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
(1152.8p - 1200.8p) x £3 per penny
-48.0p x £3 per penny
Your P&L = -£144.00 loss
