How to Spread Bet on Rexam

For example, let's suppose you look at FinancialSpreads and see something like:

  Rexam Rolling Cash Sell

544.6
Buy

546.4


Here is a brief guide to how it works...

The Spread Betting Market:Rexam Rolling Cash
The Price:544.6p - 546.4p
What This Means:Now you can take a position on the Rexam Rolling Cash market to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 546.4p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 544.6p

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

If a trade rolls over then you will either be charged or receive a small fee for overnight financing based upon whether you are speculating on the market to decrease or increase. For further information see Rolling Spread Bets.
Traded Units:Spread bets on the Rexam market are priced in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Rexam changes by 55p then you would win / lose 55 multiples of your stake.
Stake Size:You work out how much you want to stake per penny, e.g. £3 per penny, £4 per penny, £20 per penny etc.
Simplified Trading Exercise:If, for example, you chose a stake of £4 per penny and Rexam moves by 22p, you would lose or gain £4 per penny x 22p = £88.

Online spread betting on the equity to rise in value

You Now Work Out Whether to Buy or Sell: Rexam to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 546.4p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 544.6p?

Let's Assume You Buy:   Spread Betting Higher than 546.4p
You Select Your Stake Size, Let's Assume You Select: £5 per penny
Now What?
  • You win £5 for each penny Rexam pushes above 546.4p
  • You will lose £5 for every penny Rexam moves below 546.4p
If You Are Buying a Spread Bet Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Example 1
Rexam increases and the spread trading market is adjusted and moved to 569.6p - 571.4p, i.e.   569.6   571.4
Take Your Profit? You could choose to keep your bet open or close it and lock in a profit. For this example, you opt to close your bet by selling the market at 569.6p.
Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(569.6p - 546.4p) x £5 per penny
23.2p x £5 per penny
Your P&L = £116.00 profit
 
Example 2
Rexam drops and the market is revised and is set at 519.6p - 521.4p. Therefore you'd see:   519.6   521.4
Restrict Your Loss? At this point, you can choose to let your trade run or close it to limit your loss. In this example you choose to close your trade by selling at 519.6p.
Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(519.6p - 546.4p) x £5 per penny
-26.8p x £5 per penny
Your P&L = -£134.00 loss

Spread trading on the equity to move down

You Now Consider Whether to Buy or Sell: Rexam to push:

  Spread Betting Higher than 546.4p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 544.6p?

Let's Assume You Choose to Sell:   Spread Betting Lower than 544.6p
You Choose Your Stake Size, Opting for: £4 per penny
What Happens Now?
  • You will lose £4 for every penny Rexam goes higher than 544.6p
  • You win £4 for every penny Rexam falls lower than 544.6p
When Speculating on a Market to Decrease Your P&L = (Initial Price - Closing Price) x stake
 
Example 3
Rexam pushes lower and the spread betting market moves to 505.8p - 507.6p. So you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   505.8   507.6
Time to Lock in a Profit? You may opt to leave your spread bet open or close it, i.e. close your position to lock in your profit. For this example, you choose to close your bet by buying at 507.6p.
Your P&L = (Initial Price - Closing Price) x stake
(544.6p - 507.6p) x £4 per penny
37.0p x £4 per penny
Your P&L = £148.00 profit
 
Example 4
Rexam goes higher and the financial spread betting market is revised and moved to 585.5p - 587.3p, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   585.5   587.3
Close and Limit the Loss?At this point, you could choose to keep your spread bet open or close it in order to limit your losses. In this example you choose to settle your bet and buy the market at 587.3p.
Your P&L = (Initial Price - Closing Price) x stake

Your P&L = -£170.80 loss
