This is a brief guide to how it works:

Spread Betting Market:Johnson Matthey Rolling Cash

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

If a trade is rolled over then you will either receive or be charged interest for overnight financing based upon whether you are betting on the market to move lower or higher. For further information also see Rolling Spread Betting.
