A Guide to Spread Betting on SAP

Let's suppose you go on Financial Spreads and see a quote of:

  SAP Rolling Cash Sell

6087.9
Buy

6102.1


Here is a brief example of how it works

The Spread Betting MarketSAP Rolling Cash
The Spread Trading Price6087.9c - 6102.1c
How the Spread WorksYou can trade on the SAP Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Above 6102.1c, or
  Spread Betting Below 6087.9c

This is a Rolling market and so there is no closing date. If you haven't closed your trade and the session ends then your trade will automatically roll over to the next session.

Note: if a trade is rolled over then you will normally either have to pay or receive a small fee for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to go up or down. For additional information see Rolling Spread Betting.
Units (Points) TradedSpread trades on the SAP market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if SAP moves by 35.0c then you would lose or win 35 times your stake.
Stake SizeYou decide your stake per cent, e.g. £3 per cent, £5 per cent, £15 per cent etc.
Brief Staking ExerciseFor example, if you chose a stake of £3 per cent and SAP changes by 28.0c, you would win/lose £3 per cent x 28.0c = £84.


Worked Trading Example - Taking a Bullish View of SAP

Spread trading on the share to rise in value

You Decide Whether to Buy or Sell SAP to go:

  Spread Betting Above 6102.1c? or
  Spread Betting Below 6087.9c?

Let's Say You Want to Buy   Spread Betting Above 6102.1c
You Choose Your Stake Size, Opting for £3 per cent
So What Happens Now?
  • You win £3 for every cent SAP pushes higher than 6102.1c
  • Your trade loses £3 for each cent SAP pushes below 6102.1c
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Rise Your Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Scenario 1
SAP increases and the spread trading market changes to 6157.0c - 6171.2c:   6157.0   6171.2
Close for a Profit? At this point, you may decide to keep your trade open or close it and take your profit. In this example you choose to close your bet and sell at 6157.0c.
Your Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(6157.0c - 6102.1c) x £3 per cent
54.9c x £3 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = £164.70 profit
 
Trading Scenario 2
SAP moves lower and the spread betting market is revised to 6050.2c - 6064.4c. I.e.   6050.2   6064.4
Time to Restrict the Loss? You can opt to keep your trade open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to limit your losses. For this example, you choose to close your position by selling at 6050.2c.
Your Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(6050.2c - 6102.1c) x £3 per cent
-51.9c x £3 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = -£155.70 loss


Spread Betting Example - Going Short of SAP

Financial spread betting on the share to fall in value

You Choose to Buy or Sell SAP to push:

  Spread Betting Above 6102.1c? or
  Spread Betting Below 6087.9c?

Let's Say You Sell   Spread Betting Below 6087.9c
You Select Your Stake Size, Let's Assume You Select £2 per cent
So What Next?
  • Your trade loses £2 for each cent SAP moves above 6087.9c
  • You win £2 for each cent SAP moves lower than 6087.9c
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Decrease Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Closing Price) x stake
 
Trading Scenario 3
SAP falls and the market is revised and moved to 6010.7c - 6024.9c, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   6010.7   6024.9
Lock in Your Profit? At this point, you can opt to leave your position open or close it and lock in a profit. In this instance you opt to settle your position by buying at 6024.9c.
Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Closing Price) x stake
(6087.9c - 6024.9c) x £2 per cent
63.0c x £2 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = £126.00 profit
 
Trading Scenario 4
SAP rises and the financial spread betting market is adjusted to 6133.2c - 6147.4c. Therefore you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   6133.2   6147.4
Close and Restrict Your Loss?At this point, you could decide to leave your trade open or close it and limit your loss. In this example you opt to settle your bet and buy the market at 6147.4c.
Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Closing Price) x stake
(6087.9c - 6147.4c) x £2 per cent
-59.5c x £2 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = -£119.00 loss
