554.11
Buy

555.89


Here is a brief example of how it works

MarketIAG Rolling Cash
The Price554.11p - 555.89p
This MeansNow you can take a position on the IAG Rolling Cash market to push:

  Spread Betting Higher than 555.89p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 554.11p

This is a 'Rolling' spread betting market and so there is no expiry date for this spread bet. If you decide not to close your position and the session ends then your trade will automatically roll over into the next session.

Note: if the trade is rolled over then you will either be credited or debited for overnight financing based on whether you are speculating on the market to go down or up. For additional details see Rolling Spread Betting.
