How to Spread Bet on Twitter

As an example, let's suppose you sign into the Financial Spreads site and see the live quote is:

  Twitter Rolling Cash Sell

4880.0
Buy

4887.0


Here is a guide to how it works:

Spread Betting Market:Twitter Rolling Cash
Spread Betting Quote:4880.0¢ - 4887.0¢
This Means That:You can take a position on the Twitter Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 4887.0¢, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 4880.0¢

This is a Rolling trade which means that there is no expiry date. If you decide not to close your position and the session ends then your trade will roll over to the next session.

Note: if a trade is rolled over then you will normally either be credited or charged for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to decrease or increase. For further information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Traded Units:Spread betting trades on the Twitter market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Twitter moves by 55.0¢ then you would lose / win 55 multiples of your stake.
Stake (Trade Size):You decide how much you want to risk per cent, e.g. £2 per cent, £8 per cent, £15 per cent etc.
Brief Staking Example:If your stake is £4 per cent and Twitter changes by 35.0¢, you would win / lose £4 per cent x 35.0¢ = £140.


Spread Trading Example - Buying Twitter

Online spread betting on the US share to move up in value

You Choose to Go Long or Short: Twitter going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 4887.0¢? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 4880.0¢?

You Might Decide to Buy:   Spread Betting Higher than 4887.0¢
You Select Your Stake Size, Let's Assume You Choose: £2 per cent
What Now?
  • You win £2 for each cent Twitter moves higher than 4887.0¢
  • You lose £2 for every cent Twitter goes below 4887.0¢
If You Are Speculating on a Market to Go Up Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Example 1
Twitter goes higher and the market is adjusted and moved to 4965.2¢ - 4972.2¢:   4965.2   4972.2
Time to Take a Profit? You can choose to let your position run or close it to take a profit. In this example you decide to settle your position and sell the market at 4965.2¢.
Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(4965.2¢ - 4887.0¢) x £2 per cent
78.2¢ x £2 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = £156.40 profit
 
Example 2
Twitter goes lower and the financial spread betting market is adjusted to 4818.6¢ - 4825.6¢, so you'd see:   4818.6   4825.6
Restrict the Loss? At this point, you may decide to let your bet run or close it and limit your loss. For this example, you opt to settle your bet and sell at 4818.6¢.
Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(4818.6¢ - 4887.0¢) x £2 per cent
-68.4¢ x £2 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = -£136.80 loss


Worked Trading Example - Going Short of Twitter

Spread trading on the US share to go down in value

You Consider Whether to Buy or Sell: Twitter to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 4887.0¢? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 4880.0¢?

You Might Want to Sell:   Spread Betting Lower than 4880.0¢
You Decide Your Stake Size, Let's Say You Opt For: £3 per cent
So Now What Happens?
  • You lose £3 for every cent Twitter rises above 4880.0¢
  • You win £3 for every cent Twitter pushes below 4880.0¢
If You Are Betting on a Market to Go Down Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
 
Example 3
Twitter moves lower and the spread betting market is revised and changes to 4830.1¢ - 4837.1¢, i.e. you'd see:   4830.1   4837.1
Time to Lock in a Profit? At this point, you could decide to leave your position open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet to lock in your profit. In this instance you opt to close your position by buying the market at 4837.1¢.
Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
(4880.0¢ - 4837.1¢) x £3 per cent
42.9¢ x £3 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = £128.70 profit
 
Example 4
Twitter increases and the spread trading market is moved to 4910.6¢ - 4917.6¢, therefore you would see this on Financial Spreads:   4910.6   4917.6
Close and Limit Your Loss?You can choose to let your bet run or close it in order to limit your losses. For this example, you choose to settle your position by buying at 4917.6¢.
Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
(4880.0¢ - 4917.6¢) x £3 per cent
-37.6¢ x £3 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = -£112.80 loss
