Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that there is no closing date for this market. If you decide to leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will simply roll over to the next session.

- Move lower – then you will often receive a small payment to your account

Bovis Homes Rolling Daily Equities Spread Trading Example
If we take the spread of 627.7p – 630.8p and make the assumptions:
- You have done your market analysis, and
- Your research leads you to feel that the Bovis Homes shares are likely to move above 630.8p
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at 630.8p and risk, for the sake of argument, £5 per penny.
With such a bet you win £5 for every penny that the Bovis Homes shares increase and go higher than 630.8p. Nevertheless, you will make a loss of £5 for every penny that the Bovis Homes market goes below 630.8p.
Put another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is calculated by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.
With this in mind, if after a few days the shares rose then you might want to close your position in order to lock in your profit.
As an example, should the market rise, the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to 652.6p – 655.7p. You would close your spread bet by selling at 652.6p. Therefore, with the same £5 stake:
Profit = (Closing Level – Opening Level) x stake
Profit = (652.6p – 630.8p) x £5 per penny stake
Profit = 21.8p x £5 per penny stake
Profit = £109.00 profit
Trading equities can fail to go to plan. With this example, you wanted the share price to rise. Of course, it can also fall.
If the Bovis Homes spread betting market had started to fall then you might choose to close your trade to limit your losses.
Should the spread drop to 605.6p – 608.7p then this means you would settle/close your trade by selling at 605.6p. As a result, your loss would be:
Loss = (Closing Level – Opening Level) x stake
Loss = (605.6p – 630.8p) x £5 per penny stake
Loss = -25.2p x £5 per penny stake
Loss = -£126.00 loss
