Financial Spread Betting on Schroders

As an example, let's imagine you look at the FinancialSpreads website and see the current quote is:

  Schroders Rolling Cash Sell

2940.9
Buy

2946.1


This is a guide to how the market works:

Market:Schroders Rolling Cash
The Quote:2940.9p - 2946.1p
This Means That:Now you can take a position on the Schroders Rolling Cash market to move:

  Spread Betting Above 2946.1p, or
  Spread Betting Below 2940.9p

This is a Rolling spread bet which means that there is no final closing date. If you decide not to close your position and the session ends then your trade will automatically roll over into the next trading day.

If a trade rolls over then you will normally either be credited or charged for overnight financing based on whether you are betting on the market to go down or up. For additional details see Rolling Spread Betting.
Points (Units) Traded:Bets on the Schroders market are made in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Schroders moves 45p then you would win or lose 45 multiples of your stake.
Stake per Unit:You work out how much you are going to trade per penny, e.g. £1 per penny, £5 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Short Staking Exercise:If your stake is £4 per penny and Schroders moves by 26p, you would lose / win £4 per penny x 26p = £104.


Worked Example - Taking a Long Position on Schroders

Financial spread betting on the UK share to increase in value

You Select Whether to Buy or Sell: Schroders going:

  Spread Betting Above 2946.1p? or
  Spread Betting Below 2940.9p?

Let's Assume You Go Long:   Spread Betting Above 2946.1p
You Choose Your Stake, Let's Say You Select: £3 per penny
So Now What Happens?
  • You make a gain of £3 for every penny Schroders moves above 2946.1p
  • Your trade loses £3 for each penny Schroders moves lower than 2946.1p
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Go Up Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Trading Situation 1
Schroders moves higher and the market is moved to 3005.0p - 3010.2p:   3005.0   3010.2
Lock in Your Profit? You can choose to let your trade run or close it for a profit. In this case you choose to close your position and sell the market at 3005.0p.
Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(3005.0p - 2946.1p) x £3 per penny
58.9p x £3 per penny
Your P&L = £176.70 profit
 
Trading Situation 2
Schroders moves lower and the financial spread betting market is revised and set at 2894.5p - 2899.7p, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   2894.5   2899.7
Limit the Loss? At this point, you can choose to let your trade run or close it, i.e. close your trade and restrict your losses. In this instance you opt to settle your trade by selling at 2894.5p.
Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(2894.5p - 2946.1p) x £3 per penny
-51.6p x £3 per penny
Your P&L = -£154.80 loss
