Financial Spread Betting on Travelers

As an example, let's say you log on to FinancialSpreads and the spread betting platform is showing a quote of:

  Travelers Rolling Cash Sell

10809.0
Buy

10818.0


Here is an example of how it works

The Spread Betting MarketTravelers Rolling Cash
Spread10809.0¢ - 10818.0¢
This MeansNow you can trade on the Travelers Rolling Cash market going:

  Spread Betting Above 10818.0¢, or
  Spread Betting Below 10809.0¢

This is a 'Rolling' trade so it does not have a settlement date. If you haven't closed your trade and the session ends then your position will automatically roll over into the next trading session.

If a trade does roll over then you will either have to pay or receive a small fee for overnight financing depending upon whether you are betting on the market to move lower or higher. For more information also see Rolling Spread Bets.

Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
(10904.5¢ - 10818.0¢) x £2 per cent
86.5¢ x £2 per cent
Your P&L = £173.00 profit
