Where Can I Find Live Prices and Charts for Kingfisher?

The live CFDs chart and prices below will offer readers a handy overview of the Kingfisher share price.

The chart above is provided by Plus 500 and usually follows the underlying Kingfisher futures price (not the daily market).

If you'd like to look at spread trading prices/charts for Kingfisher, one option is to use a financial spread betting account.

This would also let you access shorter-term daily markets. Users should note that all such accounts are normally dependent on status, credit and suitability checks.

Should your application be approved then, when you log in, you will be able to view the live trading prices and charts. These are normally free. The catch is that you'll probably get the odd sales letter and/or call from the relevant broker.

If you decide to trade then, before starting, be aware that CFDs and spread trading do carry a significant level of risk and it's possible to incur losses that exceed your initial investment.

Kingfisher Struggles as DIY Sales Decline

Sales at the retailer have continued to decline, with the outlook remaining bleak, as milder weather conditions failed to boost DIY sales.

How to Spread Bet on Kingfisher

How to Spread Bet on Kingfisher?

If an investor is looking to invest in UK listed companies such as Kingfisher then one option is to spread trade on the Kingfisher share price.

Looking at a spread betting site like Capitalspreads, you can see they are currently showing the Kingfisher Rolling Daily market at 284.8p - 285.4p. This means you can put a spread bet on the Kingfisher share price:

  Kingfisher Trading Example Increasing higher than 285.4p, or
  Kingfisher Spread Trading Example Decreasing lower than 284.8p

Whilst financial spread betting on FTSE 350 equities you trade in x per penny. As a result, should you decide to risk 4 per penny and the Kingfisher shares move 27p then that would alter your P&L by 108. 4 per penny x 27p = 108.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

One important thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal futures market, there is no settlement date. If your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it will stay open and roll over into the next day.

If you do roll over a trade and you are spread betting that the market will:

  Kingfisher Spread Trading Example Rise - then you'll usually be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Kingfisher Spread Trading Example Fall - then you'll usually receive a small credit to your account

If you would like a fully worked example then see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Kingfisher Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Trading Example

If we take the spread of 284.8p - 285.4p and make the assumptions that:
  • You have analysed the company, and
  • Your analysis suggests the Kingfisher share price looks like it will go higher than 285.4p
Then you may buy at 285.4p for a stake of 15 per penny.

So, you win 15 for every penny that the Kingfisher shares increase and go above 285.4p. Of course, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of 15 for every penny that the Kingfisher market moves below 285.4p.

Considering this from another angle, if you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

If after a few days the share price rose then you might consider closing your trade in order to guarantee your profit. As an example, should the market rise, the spread might change to 292.6p - 293.2p. You would close your trade by selling at 292.6p. Accordingly, with the same 15 stake this trade would make you a profit of:

Profit = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = (292.6p - 285.4p) x 15 per penny stake
Profit = 7.2p x 15 per penny stake
Profit = 108.00 profit

Spread betting on shares can work against you. In the above example, you wanted the share price to increase. Of course, the share price could decrease.

If the Kingfisher shares weakened, against your expectations, then you might decide to settle/close your trade in order to limit your losses.

Should the market fall back to 279.3p - 279.9p then you would close your spread bet by selling at 279.3p. This would result in a loss of:

Loss = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = (279.3p - 285.4p) x 15 per penny stake
Loss = -6.1p x 15 per penny stake
Loss = -91.50 loss

Note: Kingfisher Rolling Daily spread taken as of 19-Oct-12.
