A Guide to Spread Betting on Telefonica

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

  Telefonica Rolling Cash Sell

1319.7
Buy

1323.3


Here is an example of how it works:

Spread Trading Market:Telefonica Rolling Cash
Price (Spread):1319.7c - 1323.3c
What This Means:You can speculate on the Telefonica Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Above 1323.3c, or
  Spread Betting Below 1319.7c

This is a Rolling spread betting market which means that there is no final closing date for this trade. If you don't close your position and the trading session ends then your trade will roll over to the next trading session.

Note: if a trade does roll over then you will either pay or receive a small fee for overnight financing depending on the direction of your spread bet. For more details also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Trading Units:Spread bets on the Telefonica market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Telefonica moves 35.0c then you would win or lose 35 multiples of your stake.
Trade Size:You choose how much you are going to trade per cent, e.g. £1 per cent, £5 per cent, £20 per cent etc.
Brief Staking Example:With that in mind, if your stake is £3 per cent and Telefonica changes by 24.0c, you would win/lose £3 per cent x 24.0c = £72.
