Financial Spread Betting on Whitbread

As an example, let's imagine you sign into the FinancialSpreads site and see something like:

  Whitbread Rolling Cash Sell

5001.5
Buy

5013.5


Here's an example of how the market works:

The Spread Betting Market:Whitbread Rolling Cash
The Spread Betting Quote:5001.5p - 5013.5p
How This Works:Now you can spread bet on the Whitbread Rolling Cash market moving:

  Spread Betting Higher than 5013.5p, or
  Spread Betting Lower than 5001.5p

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

Note that if a trade rolls over then you will either have to pay or receive interest for overnight financing depending upon whether you are speculating on the market to move higher or lower. For additional information also see Rolling Spread Bets.
Units Traded:Spread trades on the Whitbread market are priced in £x per penny price movement.

E.g. if Whitbread changes by 45p then you would win/lose 45 times your stake.
Stake:You work out how much you are going to trade per penny, e.g. £3 per penny, £4 per penny, £15 per penny etc.
Brief Example:As an example, if you decided on a stake of £4 per penny and Whitbread moves 29p, you would lose or win £4 per penny x 29p = £116.


Spread Betting Example - Taking a Bullish View of Whitbread

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

You Decide to Go Long or Short: Whitbread going:

  Spread Betting Higher than 5013.5p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 5001.5p?

Let's Assume You Go Long:   Spread Betting Higher than 5013.5p
You Decide Your Stake Size, Selecting: £2 per penny
What Happens Next?
  • You will make £2 for each penny Whitbread moves above 5013.5p
  • You will make a loss of £2 for every penny Whitbread pushes lower than 5013.5p
If You Are Spread Betting on a Market to Go Up Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
 
Trading Example 1
Whitbread rises and the market is revised and changes to 5103.7p - 5115.7p, therefore you would see:   5103.7   5115.7
Close and Take a Profit? At this point, you may decide to keep your position open or close it to take a profit. In this case you choose to settle your position and sell at 5103.7p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(5103.7p - 5013.5p) x £2 per penny
90.2p x £2 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = £180.40 profit
 
Trading Example 2
Whitbread pushes lower and the financial spread betting market is moved to 4913.2p - 4925.2p, so you would see this on Financial Spreads:   4913.2   4925.2
Limit the Loss? At this point, you can decide to let your position run or close it in order to restrict your loss. For this example, you opt to settle your trade by selling the market at 4913.2p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
(4913.2p - 5013.5p) x £2 per penny
-100.3p x £2 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = -£200.60 loss

You Choose to Go Long or Short: Whitbread to go:

  Spread Betting Higher than 5013.5p? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 5001.5p?

Let's Assume You Choose to Go Short:   Spread Betting Lower than 5001.5p

So Now What?
  • You will make a loss of £3 for every penny Whitbread increases higher than 5001.5p
  • You will make £3 for every penny Whitbread moves lower than 5001.5p
If You Are Speculating on a Market to Decrease Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake

Lock in Your Profit? You can opt to let your spread bet run or close it, i.e. close your position to lock in a profit. In this instance you choose to settle your bet and buy at 4934.0p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
(5001.5p - 4934.0p) x £3 per penny
67.5p x £3 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = £202.50 profit
 
Trading Example 4
Whitbread pushes higher and the spread betting market is revised and is set at 5064.5p - 5076.5p. Therefore Financial Spreads would show:   5064.5   5076.5
Time to Limit the Loss?At this point, you could choose to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your position to limit your loss. In this case you decide to close your bet by buying at 5076.5p.
Your Profits/Losses = (Opening Price - Final Price) x stake
(5001.5p - 5076.5p) x £3 per penny
-75.0p x £3 per penny
Your Profits/Losses = -£225.00 loss
