Financial Spread Betting on Melrose

Let's assume that you log on to the Financial Spreads site and the live price is:

  Melrose Rolling Cash Sell

277.61
Buy

278.29


Here's a guide to how it works

Market:Melrose Rolling Cash
The Spread:277.61p - 278.29p
How the Trade Works:You can spread bet on the Melrose Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 278.29p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 277.61p

This is a 'Rolling' spread bet and so there is no settlement date. If you haven't closed your position and the trading session ends then your position will roll over to the next session.

Note: if the trade is rolled over then you will either receive or pay interest for overnight financing based upon the direction of your trade. For additional information also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Traded Units:Spread trades on the Melrose market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Melrose changes by 45p then you would win / lose 45 times your stake.
Stake per Unit:You choose how much you would like to stake per penny, e.g. £1 per penny, £5 per penny, £20 per penny etc.
Short Staking Exercise:If, as an example, you chose a stake of £4 per penny and Melrose moves 27p, you would lose or gain £4 per penny x 27p = £108.

Financial spread betting on the equity to go up in value

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

  Spread Betting Higher than 278.29p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 277.61p?

Let's Say You Want to Buy:   Spread Betting Higher than 278.29p
You Decide Your Stake, Let's Say You Choose: £10 per penny
What Happens Now?
  • You make a profit of £10 for each penny Melrose moves above 278.29p
  • You lose £10 for every penny Melrose falls below 278.29p
If You Buy a Market Your Trading Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 1
Melrose climbs and the spread trading market is revised and set at 288.73p - 289.41p, i.e. the market moves to:   288.73   289.41
Lock in Your Profit? You may opt to keep your spread bet open or close it, i.e. close your position to lock in a profit. In this case you decide to close your bet and sell at 288.73p.
Your Trading Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(288.73p - 278.29p) x £10 per penny
10.44p x £10 per penny
Your Trading Profits/Losses = £104.40 profit
 
Trading Example 2
Melrose falls and the financial spread betting market is moved to 266.46p - 267.14p:   266.46   267.14
Close and Restrict the Loss? You can choose to leave your position open or close it, i.e. close your position to restrict your loss. In this example you choose to close your bet and sell the market at 266.46p.
Your Trading Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(266.46p - 278.29p) x £10 per penny

Your Trading Profits/Losses = -£118.30 loss
