How to Spread Bet on Dixons Carphone

How to Spread Bet on Dixons Carphone?

If an investor wants to speculate on UK listed companies such as Dixons Carphone then one solution could be spread trading on the Dixons Carphone share price.

Looking at a site like FinancialSpreads, you can see that they have priced the Dixons Carphone Rolling Daily market at 364.26p - 365.14p. Therefore, an investor could spread bet on the Dixons Carphone shares:

  Dixons Carphone Spread Trading Example Increasing higher than 365.14p, or
  Dixons Carphone Trading Example Decreasing lower than 364.26p

When financial spread trading on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. So, if you staked £4 per penny and the Dixons Carphone share price changes by 35p then that would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of £140. £4 per penny x 35p = £140.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

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

If you do let your position roll over into the next day and are spread betting on the market to:

  Dixons Carphone Trading Example Go up - then you'll normally be charged a small financing fee, or
  Dixons Carphone Trading Example Go down - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

Dixons Carphone Rolling Daily - Shares Trading Example

Now, if you consider the above spread of 364.26p - 365.14p and assume that:
  • You've done your equities research, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think that the Dixons Carphone shares are likely to increase and go above 365.14p
Then you might decide that you are going to buy at 365.14p and risk £10 per penny.

So, you gain £10 for every penny that the Dixons Carphone shares push higher than 365.14p. Nevertheless, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of £10 for every penny that the Dixons Carphone market falls lower than 365.14p.

Put another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

With this in mind, if after a few days the shares started to rise you might decide to close your position so that you can secure your profit. So if the market moved up then the spread might change to 378.83p - 379.71p. To settle/close your trade you would sell at 378.83p. Therefore, with the same £10 stake your profit would be:

Your profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (378.83p - 365.14p) x £10 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = 13.69p x £10 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = £136.90 profit

Trading equities, by spread trading or otherwise, is not always simple. In this example, you wanted the share price to go up. However, it can also fall.

If the Dixons Carphone stock dropped then you could close your position in order to limit your losses.

Should the spread fall back to 353.27p - 354.15p you would sell back your position at 353.27p. That would mean you would make a loss of:

Your profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (353.27p - 365.14p) x £10 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = -11.87p x £10 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = -£118.70 loss
