How to Spread Bet on Debenhams

How to Spread Bet on Debenhams?

If you decide to invest in firms like Debenhams then one solution could be spread betting on the Debenhams share price.

Looking at a platform like Capitalspreads, you can see they have priced the Debenhams Rolling Daily market at 120.2p - 120.8p. Therefore, you can put a spread bet on the Debenhams shares:

  Debenhams Spread Betting Example Going higher than 120.8p, or
  Debenhams Trading Example Going lower than 120.2p

Whilst spread betting on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. So, should you choose to risk £5 per penny and the Debenhams shares move 36p then there would be a difference to your P&L of £180. £5 per penny x 36p = £180.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no closing date. If your trade is open at the end of the day, it just rolls over to the next day.

If your spread bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Debenhams Trading Example Increase - then you are normally charged a small financing fee, or
  Debenhams Trading Example Decrease - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Debenhams Rolling Daily - Equities Trading Example

So, if we consider the spread of 120.2p - 120.8p and assume that:
  • You have done your analysis, and
  • Your analysis leads you to feel the Debenhams shares will move higher than 120.8p
Then you could buy a spread bet at 120.8p and risk, for the sake of argument, £20 per penny.

So, you make a profit of £20 for every penny that the Debenhams shares go above 120.8p. However, it also means that you will make a loss of £20 for every penny that the Debenhams market falls below 120.8p.

Put another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are 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.

With this in mind, if after a few hours the shares moved higher then you could consider closing your position in order to secure your profit. As an example, if the market increased then the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to 126.2p - 126.8p. You would close your trade by selling at 126.2p. Therefore, with the same £20 stake you would make:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = (126.2p - 120.8p) x £20 per penny stake
P&L = 5.4p x £20 per penny stake
P&L = £108.00 profit

Trading shares doesn't always work out as you would have liked. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would rise. However, the share price might go down.

If the Debenhams stock weakened, against your expectations, then you might decide to settle/close your position in order to limit your losses.

Should the market drop to 116.1p - 116.7p then you would sell back your position at 116.1p. If so, this would result in a loss of:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = (116.1p - 120.8p) x £20 per penny stake
P&L = -4.7p x £20 per penny stake
P&L = -£94.00 loss

Note - Debenhams Rolling Daily spread correct as of 31-Oct-12.
