A Guide to Spread Trading on Fresnillo

Let's suppose that you look at FinancialSpreads and see a price of:

  Fresnillo Rolling Cash Sell

877.9
Buy

879.6


This is a brief guide to how it works:

The Spread Betting Market:Fresnillo Rolling Cash
Spread:877.9p - 879.6p
How the Trade Works:Now you can bet on the Fresnillo Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 879.6p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 877.9p

This market is a 'Rolling' market which means that there is no expiry date for this trade. If you decide not to close your trade and the session ends then your trade will automatically roll over into the next trading session.

If a trade rolls over then you will normally either be charged or credited for overnight financing depending upon whether you are betting on the market to go up or down. For additional information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Traded Units:Bets on the Fresnillo market are priced in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Fresnillo changes by 35p then you would lose or gain 35 multiples of your stake.
Stake:You choose how much you would like to trade per penny, e.g. £2 per penny, £4 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Simplified Trading Exercise:As an example, if you had a stake of £2 per penny and Fresnillo moves by 24p, you would gain or lose £2 per penny x 24p = £48.

You Now Select Whether to Buy or Sell: Fresnillo moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 879.6p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 877.9p?

Let's Assume You Choose to Go Long:   Spread Betting Higher than 879.6p

So What Happens Next?
  • You make a gain of £4 for each penny Fresnillo increases above 879.6p

When Speculating on a Market to Go Up Your Profits/Losses = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Example 1
Fresnillo moves higher and the spread trading market adjusts and moves to 906.0p - 907.7p, i.e. Financial Spreads would show:   906.0   907.7
Take a Profit? You may decide to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to lock in your profit. For this example, you decide to close your bet by selling the market at 906.0p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
(906.0p - 879.6p) x £4 per penny
26.4p x £4 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = £105.60 profit
 
Example 2
Fresnillo falls and the spread betting market is revised and set at 857.2p - 858.9p, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   857.2   858.9
Limit the Loss? You can choose to keep your trade open or close it and limit your losses. In this example you opt to settle your position and sell the market at 857.2p.

Your Profits/Losses = -£89.60 loss
