Financial Spread Betting on Walt Disney

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

  Walt Disney Rolling Cash Sell

10383.0
Buy

10390.0


Here is a brief example of how it works:

Spread Betting Market:Walt Disney Rolling Cash
The Price:10383.0¢ - 10390.0¢
This Means That:Now you can speculate on the Walt Disney Rolling Cash market going:

  Spread Betting Above 10390.0¢, or
  Spread Betting Below 10383.0¢

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

Note: if a trade rolls over then you will either pay or receive a small fee for overnight financing depending upon the direction of your spread bet. For additional details also see Rolling Spread Betting.
Points (Units) Traded:Financial spread bets on the Walt Disney market are made in £x per cent price movement.

E.g. if Walt Disney moves by 30.0¢ then you would lose or win 30 times your stake.

Brief Staking Exercise:For example, if you have a stake of £2 per cent and Walt Disney changes by 34.0¢, you would lose / win £2 per cent x 34.0¢ = £68.
