A Guide to Spread Betting on Volkswagen

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

  Volkswagen Rolling Cash Sell

20889.1
Buy

20950.9


Here is a brief example of how it works

Spread Betting MarketVolkswagen Rolling Cash
Spread Betting Quote20889.1c - 20950.9c
How the Trade WorksYou can bet on the Volkswagen Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 20950.9c, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 20889.1c

This is a Rolling trade so it does not have a closing date. If you decide not to close your trade and the session ends then your trade will roll over to the next trading session.

Note that if the trade is rolled over then you will either be credited or debited for overnight financing depending on the direction of your position. For additional information see Rolling Spread Betting.
Points (Units) TradedTrades on the Volkswagen market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Volkswagen moves 55.0c then you would lose / win 55 times your stake.
Stake SizeYou choose how much you want to trade per cent, e.g. £2 per cent, £5 per cent, £15 per cent etc.
Simplified Trading ExerciseFor example, if your stake is £2 per cent and Volkswagen changes by 35.0c, you would lose or gain £2 per cent x 35.0c = £70.


Spread Trading Example - Taking a Long Position on Volkswagen

Spread betting on the equity to rise in value

You Choose Whether to Buy or Sell Volkswagen going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 20950.9c? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 20889.1c?

Let's Assume You Buy   Spread Betting Higher than 20950.9c
You Select Your Stake, Let's Say You Choose £2 per cent
So What Now?
  • You win £2 for every cent Volkswagen increases above 20950.9c
  • You will lose £2 for each cent Volkswagen decreases lower than 20950.9c
When Betting on a Market to Rise Your P&L = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
 
Situation 1
Volkswagen rises and the market is revised and set at 21055.7c - 21117.5c. So you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   21055.7   21117.5
Time to Lock in a Profit? You may choose to keep your bet open or close it, i.e. close your spread bet for a profit. In this instance you decide to settle your position and sell the market at 21055.7c.
Your P&L = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(21055.7c - 20950.9c) x £2 per cent
104.8c x £2 per cent
Your P&L = £209.60 profit
 
Situation 2
Volkswagen falls and the spread betting market is moved to 20856.6c - 20918.4c. Therefore you'd see this on Financial Spreads:   20856.6   20918.4
Close and Limit the Loss? At this point, you may decide to keep your trade open or close it, i.e. close your trade to restrict your loss. In this case you choose to close your position by selling at 20856.6c.
Your P&L = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
(20856.6c - 20950.9c) x £2 per cent
-94.3c x £2 per cent
Your P&L = -£188.60 loss
