How to Spread Bet on Barratt?
Should an investor want to invest in companies such as Barratt then one possibility could be to spread bet on the Barratt share price.
Logging onto FinancialSpreads.com, you can see they are valuing the Barratt Rolling Daily market at 189.9p - 190.7p. As a result, an investor can spread trade on the Barratt shares:
Moving above 190.7p, or
Moving below 189.9p
When spread trading on FTSE 350 shares you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, if you chose to have a stake of £3 per penny and the Barratt share price moves 30p then that would make a difference to your profits (or losses) of £90. £3 per penny x 30p = £90.
Rolling Daily Shares Markets
Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that in contrast with futures markets, there is no settlement date. If your position is still open at the end of the day, it will roll over to the next session.
If your trade is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:
Increase - then you usually pay a small overnight financing fee, or
Decrease - then a small payment is often credited to your account

Barratt Rolling Daily - Shares Trading Example
So, if we think about the above spread of 189.9p - 190.7p and assume:
Then you might decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at 190.7p and risk, for example, £15 per penny.
- You've completed your analysis of the company, and
- Your research leads you to feel that the Barratt shares are likely to increase and move higher than 190.7p
So, you gain £15 for every penny that the Barratt shares move above 190.7p. However, you will make a loss of £15 for every penny that the Barratt market decreases below 190.7p.
Put another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is calculated by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.
If after a few sessions the share price started to increase then you might want to close your position in order to secure your profit.
As an example, if the market increased then the spread, set by the spread trading company, might change to 198.1p - 198.9p. You would close/settle your spread bet by selling at 198.1p. Accordingly, with the same £15 stake your profit would be calculated as:
Profit / loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (198.1p - 190.7p) x £15 per penny stake
Profit / loss = 7.4p x £15 per penny stake
Profit / loss = £111.00 profit
Speculating on equities, by spread betting or otherwise, is not always easy. In this example, you had bet that the share price would rise. Naturally, the share price can also fall.
If the Barratt stock weakened, against your expectations, then you could close your position to stop any further losses.
Should the spread drop to 182.1p - 182.9p then this means you would settle your trade by selling at 182.1p. So your loss would be calculated as:
Profit / loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (182.1p - 190.7p) x £15 per penny stake
Profit / loss = -8.6p x £15 per penny stake
Profit / loss = -£129.00 loss
