Financial Spread Betting on Sage

Let's imagine that you look at the Financial Spreads website and the trading platform is showing a price of:

  Sage Rolling Cash Sell

469.77
Buy

470.63


Here's a guide to how it works.

The MarketSage Rolling Cash
Price (Spread)469.77p - 470.63p
How the Spread WorksNow you can trade on the Sage Rolling Cash market to push:

  Spread Betting Above 470.63p, or
  Spread Betting Below 469.77p

This market is a Rolling market meaning that it does not have a closing date. If you haven't closed your position and the trading session ends then your position will roll over into the next session.

If a trade does roll over then you will normally either receive or be charged interest for overnight financing depending on the direction of your bet. For more information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Traded UnitsSpread bets on the Sage market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Sage moves 50p then you would win/lose 50 multiples of your stake.
Stake (Trade Size)You work out your stake per penny, e.g. £2 per penny, £8 per penny, £20 per penny etc.
Staking ExampleAs an example, if you chose a stake of £2 per penny and Sage moves by 32p, you would lose / win £2 per penny x 32p = £64.


Worked Spread Trading Example - Taking a Long Position on Sage

Financial spread betting on the equity to go up

You Decide to Go Long or Short Sage to move:

  Spread Betting Above 470.63p? or
  Spread Betting Below 469.77p?

Let's Say You Choose to Go Long   Spread Betting Above 470.63p
You Decide Your Stake, Choosing £15 per penny
So Now What Happens?
  • You will win £15 for each penny Sage pushes higher than 470.63p
  • You will lose £15 for every penny Sage moves lower than 470.63p
When You Buy a Spread Bet Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Trading Scenario 1
Sage climbs and the spread trading market adjusts and moves to 482.87p - 483.73p. Therefore you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   482.87   483.73
Take a Profit? You could opt to let your spread bet run or close it, i.e. close your position for a profit. In this case you opt to settle your position and sell the market at 482.87p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(482.87p - 470.63p) x £15 per penny
12.24p x £15 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = £183.60 profit
 
Trading Scenario 2
Sage goes lower and the spread betting market becomes 457.22p - 458.08p:   457.22   458.08
Time to Restrict the Loss? You could opt to leave your spread bet open or close it, i.e. close your trade to restrict your loss. In this case you opt to close your trade by selling at 457.22p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(457.22p - 470.63p) x £15 per penny
-13.41p x £15 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = -£201.15 loss

  • You will win £15 for every penny Sage goes lower than 469.77p
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Go Down Your Profits/Losses = (Initial Price - Final Price) x stake

Your Profits/Losses = £155.70 profit
