How to Spread Bet on Berkeley Group

How to Spread Bet on Berkeley Group?

If you decide to invest in firms like Berkeley then one possibility is to spread trade on the Berkeley share price.

Looking at a financial spread betting website like Capitalspreads, we can see they are offering the Berkeley Rolling Daily market at 1522.1p - 1526.9p. As a result, you could spread bet on the Berkeley share price:

  Berkeley Spread Trading Example Going higher than 1526.9p, or
  Berkeley Spread Betting Example Going lower than 1522.1p

Whilst making a spread bet on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, should you choose to risk £2 per penny and the Berkeley share price changes by 23p then there would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of £46. £2 per penny x 23p = £46.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a futures market, there is no closing date. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it simply keeps rolling over into the next trading session.

If your trade is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:

  Berkeley Spread Betting Example Rise - then you usually pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  Berkeley Spread Betting Example Fall - then a small payment is normally credited to your account

Berkeley Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example

So, if you consider the above spread of 1522.1p - 1526.9p and make the assumptions:
  • You've done your analysis of the markets, and
  • Your research leads you to think the Berkeley shares are likely to push higher than 1526.9p
Then you might decide that you want to buy at 1526.9p and invest, for the sake of argument, £3 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win £3 for every penny that the Berkeley shares increase and go above 1526.9p. However, it also means that you will make a loss of £3 for every penny that the Berkeley market goes below 1526.9p.

Looked at another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

If after a few days the share price moved higher then you might want to close your spread bet so that you can lock in your profit. If that happened then the spread could change to 1581.9p - 1586.7p. You would close your position by selling at 1581.9p. Therefore, with the same £3 stake your profit would come to:

Profit = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = (1581.9p - 1526.9p) x £3 per penny stake
Profit = 55.0p x £3 per penny stake
Profit = £165.00 profit

Speculating on shares, whether by spread betting or not, can fail to go to plan. In the above example, you wanted the share price to increase. Of course, it can also fall.

If the Berkeley shares had fallen then you could choose to close your spread bet in order to restrict your losses.

So if the spread dropped to 1477.3p - 1482.1p then you would sell back your position at 1477.3p. As a result, your loss would be:

Loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = (1477.3p - 1526.9p) x £3 per penny stake
Loss = -49.6p x £3 per penny stake
Loss = -£148.80 loss

Note - Berkeley Rolling Daily equities market taken as of 31-Oct-12.
