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

  Siemens Rolling Cash Sell

9594.4
Buy

9618.6


Here is a brief guide to how the market works:

Spread Betting MarketSiemens Rolling Cash
Price (Spread)9594.4c - 9618.6c
This Means ThatNow you can take a position on the Siemens Rolling Cash market going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 9618.6c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 9594.4c

This market is a 'Rolling' market meaning that it does not have an expiry date. If you decide not to close your position and the trading session ends then your trade will roll over into the next trading day.

Note: if a trade does roll over then you will normally either receive or pay a small fee for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to move lower or higher. For further details see Rolling Spread Betting.
Units (Points) TradedSpread trades on the Siemens market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Siemens moves 35.0c then you would lose or gain 35 times your stake.

Simplified ExampleFor example, if you chose a stake of £2 per cent and Siemens changes by 31.0c, you would win or lose £2 per cent x 31.0c = £62.


Worked Trading Example - Going Long of Siemens

Spread trading on the European share to rise in value

You Select Whether to Buy or Sell Siemens to push:

  Spread Betting Higher than 9618.6c? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 9594.4c?

You Might Decide to Go Long   Spread Betting Higher than 9618.6c
You Decide Your Stake Size, Choosing £2 per cent
What Now?
  • You will make £2 for every cent Siemens moves above 9618.6c
  • Your spread bet loses £2 for each cent Siemens moves below 9618.6c
If You Are Speculating on a Market to Rise Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Example 1
Siemens pushes higher and the spread trading market is revised and set at 9690.7c - 9714.9c. Therefore you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   9690.7   9714.9
Close and Take a Profit? At this point, you can decide to let your position run or close it to lock in your profit. In this example you decide to close your position by selling at 9690.7c.
Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(9690.7c - 9618.6c) x £2 per cent
72.1c x £2 per cent
Your P&L = £144.20 profit
 
Example 2
Siemens moves lower and the spread betting market moves to 9539.2c - 9563.4c, therefore you'd see:   9539.2   9563.4
Restrict Your Loss? You may opt to leave your bet open or close it in order to restrict your loss. For this example, you decide to close your bet and sell the market at 9539.2c.
Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(9539.2c - 9618.6c) x £2 per cent
-79.4c x £2 per cent
Your P&L = -£158.80 loss


Spread Trading Example - Going Short of Siemens

Spread betting on the European share to go down in value

You Work Out Whether to Buy or Sell Siemens to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 9618.6c? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 9594.4c?

Let's Assume You Decide to Go Short   Spread Betting Lower than 9594.4c
You Decide How Much to Risk, Let's Say You Opt For £3 per cent
So What Next?
  • Your spread bet loses £3 for each cent Siemens pushes above 9594.4c
  • You will make £3 for each cent Siemens goes lower than 9594.4c
When Spread Betting on a Market to Go Down Your P&L = (Initial Price - Closing Price) x stake
 
Example 3
Siemens drops and the market is adjusted and moved to 9509.0c - 9533.2c. I.e. the market moves to:   9509.0   9533.2
Take a Profit? You could choose to leave your position open or close it in order to take a profit. In this instance you choose to settle your bet by buying the market at 9533.2c.
Your P&L = (Initial Price - Closing Price) x stake
(9594.4c - 9533.2c) x £3 per cent
61.2c x £3 per cent
Your P&L = £183.60 profit
 
Example 4
Siemens moves higher and the financial spread betting market adjusts and moves to 9637.5c - 9661.7c. Therefore Financial Spreads would show:   9637.5   9661.7
Time to Restrict Your Loss?You can opt to let your bet run or close it, i.e. close your spread bet and restrict your losses. For this example, you decide to settle your bet and buy at 9661.7c.
Your P&L = (Initial Price - Closing Price) x stake
(9594.4c - 9661.7c) x £3 per cent
-67.3c x £3 per cent
Your P&L = -£201.90 loss
