A Guide to Spread Trading on Kingfisher

For example, let's say you log on to the FinancialSpreads website and the trading platform is showing a quote of:

  Kingfisher Rolling Cash Sell

344.16
Buy

344.84


Here is a brief example of how it works.

The MarketKingfisher Rolling Cash
Spread344.16p - 344.84p
This MeansYou can trade on the Kingfisher Rolling Cash market to push:

  Spread Betting Above 344.84p, or
  Spread Betting Below 344.16p

This is a 'Rolling' spread bet which means that there is no settlement date for this trade. If you haven't closed your trade and the trading session ends then your position will automatically roll over into the next trading day.

If the trade is rolled over then you will either have to pay or receive interest for overnight financing depending on whether you are betting on the market to go down or up. For further information also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Traded UnitsSpread bets on the Kingfisher market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Kingfisher changes by 40p then you would lose or gain 40 times your stake.
Stake per UnitYou choose how much you want to stake per penny, e.g. £1 per penny, £5 per penny, £10 per penny etc.
Short Staking ExerciseIf you decided on a stake of £3 per penny and Kingfisher moves 22p, you would gain or lose £3 per penny x 22p = £66.
