A Guide to Financial Spread Betting on Vodafone

As an example, let's suppose that you go on the Financial Spreads site and see the current price is:

  Vodafone Rolling Cash Sell

232.49
Buy

232.86


Here's an example of how it works:

Spread Trading Market:Vodafone Rolling Cash
Quote (The Spread):232.49p - 232.86p
This Means:You can spread bet on the Vodafone Rolling Cash market to move:

  Spread Betting Higher than 232.86p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 232.49p

This is a 'Rolling' market and so there is no settlement date for this trade. If you decide not to close your position and the trading session ends then your trade will automatically roll over to the next trading session.

If a trade does roll over then you will either be charged or credited for overnight financing depending upon the direction of your position. For further details also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Traded Units:Spread trades on the Vodafone market are priced in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Vodafone changes by 50p then you would win/lose 50 times your stake.
Stake (Trade Size):You choose what to risk per penny, e.g. £2 per penny, £4 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Short Staking Exercise:If, as an example, your stake is £4 per penny and Vodafone moves 33p, you would lose / win £4 per penny x 33p = £132.

Lock in a Profit? You could decide to keep your trade open or close it and take your profit. In this case you choose to close your position by selling the market at 242.17p.

9.31p x £15 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = £139.65 profit
 
Example 2
Vodafone drops and the spread trading market is revised and changes to 224.71p - 225.08p, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   224.71   225.08
