A Guide to Spread Betting on Verizon

For example, let's suppose you sign into Financial Spreads and are presented with:

  Verizon Rolling Cash Sell

4913.0
Buy

4918.0


This is a guide to how the market works:

Spread Trading MarketVerizon Rolling Cash
Spread4913.0¢ - 4918.0¢
This MeansYou can spread bet on the Verizon Rolling Cash market to go:

  Spread Betting Above 4918.0¢, or
  Spread Betting Below 4913.0¢

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

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will either be credited or debited for overnight financing based upon whether you are betting on the market to rise or fall. For further details see Rolling Spread Betting.
Traded UnitsFinancial spread bets on the Verizon market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Verizon moves by 50.0¢ then you would win / lose 50 times your stake.
Stake Size per UnitYou work out how much you are going to risk per cent, e.g. £3 per cent, £4 per cent, £15 per cent etc.
Short Staking ExerciseWith that in mind, if your stake is £5 per cent and Verizon changes by 30.0¢, you would lose/win £5 per cent x 30.0¢ = £150.

Time to Take a Profit? You may opt to leave your position open or close it to take your profit. In this example you choose to settle your trade and sell the market at 4954.9¢.
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(4954.9¢ - 4918.0¢) x £4 per cent
36.9¢ x £4 per cent
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = £147.60 profit
 
Trading Example 2
Verizon pushes lower and the spread trading market is adjusted and moved to 4886.0¢ - 4891.0¢, i.e.   4886.0   4891.0

Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(4886.0¢ - 4918.0¢) x £4 per cent
-32.0¢ x £4 per cent
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = -£128.00 loss
