How to Spread Bet on Intel

As an example, let's imagine that you log on to FinancialSpreads.com and the trading platform is showing a quote of:

  Intel Rolling Cash Sell

3428.0
Buy

3433.0


Here is a guide to how it works

The Market:Intel Rolling Cash
Spread Betting Quote:3428.0¢ - 3433.0¢
How the Market Works:You can spread bet on the Intel Rolling Cash market to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 3433.0¢, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 3428.0¢

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

Note: if a trade does roll over then you will normally either receive or be charged interest for overnight financing based upon whether you are betting on the market to go up or down. To learn more also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Units (Points) Traded:Trades on the Intel market are priced in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Intel changes by 50.0¢ then you would gain or lose 50 multiples of your stake.
Stake (Trade Size):You work out how much you are going to trade per cent, e.g. £3 per cent, £5 per cent, £20 per cent etc.
Quick Staking Example:For example, if you had a stake of £4 per cent and Intel moves by 32.0¢, you would win or lose £4 per cent x 32.0¢ = £128.


Spread Betting Example - Going Long of Intel

Online spread betting on the equity to go up in value

You Now Select Whether to Buy or Sell: Intel going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 3433.0¢? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 3428.0¢?

Let's Assume You Choose to Buy:   Spread Betting Higher than 3433.0¢
You Choose How Much to Risk, Opting for: £2 per cent
So What Next?
  • You will make £2 for each cent Intel pushes higher than 3433.0¢
  • You lose £2 for every cent Intel falls below 3433.0¢
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Increase Your P/L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Situation 1
Intel moves higher and the spread betting market becomes 3491.4¢ - 3496.4¢, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   3491.4   3496.4
Take a Profit? You can opt to keep your trade open or close it, i.e. close your trade for a profit. In this instance you decide to settle your position and sell at 3491.4¢.
Your P/L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(3491.4¢ - 3433.0¢) x £2 per cent
58.4¢ x £2 per cent
Your P/L = £116.80 profit
 
Trading Situation 2
Intel falls and the spread trading market changes to 3366.1¢ - 3371.1¢. Therefore you'd see:   3366.1   3371.1
Close and Limit Your Loss? At this point, you can opt to leave your trade open or close it, i.e. close your position and limit your loss. In this example you decide to settle your position and sell the market at 3366.1¢.
Your P/L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(3366.1¢ - 3433.0¢) x £2 per cent
-66.9¢ x £2 per cent
Your P/L = -£133.80 loss

You Now Decide Whether to Buy or Sell: Intel to push:

  Spread Betting Lower than 3428.0¢?

Let's Say You Decide to Sell:   Spread Betting Lower than 3428.0¢

So What Now?
  • You lose £1 for every cent Intel goes higher than 3428.0¢
  • You will make £1 for every cent Intel goes below 3428.0¢
When Speculating on a Market to Decrease Your P/L = (Opening Price - Closing Price) x stake

148.6¢ x £1 per cent
Your P/L = £148.60 profit
