How to Spread Bet on Ladbrokes

How to Spread Bet on Ladbrokes?

If an investor is looking to invest in companies like Ladbrokes then one option could be to spread trade on the Ladbrokes share price.

Looking at a spread betting site like Selftrade Markets, you can see they are offering the Ladbrokes Rolling Daily market at 178.9p - 179.7p. This means an investor could spread bet on the Ladbrokes share price:

  Ladbrokes Spread Betting Example Rising above 179.7p, or
  Ladbrokes Trading Example Falling below 178.9p

Whilst financial spread trading on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. So, if your stake was £5 per penny and the Ladbrokes share price moves 34p then that would change your bottom line by £170. £5 per penny x 34p = £170.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

This is a Rolling Daily Market which means that it does not have a closing date. If you decide to leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will simply roll over to the next trading day.

If a spread bet is rolled over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Ladbrokes Trading Example Move up - then you are normally charged a small financing fee, or
  Ladbrokes Trading Example Move down - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Ladbrokes Rolling Daily - Equities Trading Example

So, if you take the above spread of 178.9p - 179.7p and assume that:
  • You have analysed the equities market, and
  • Your research suggests the Ladbrokes shares are likely to move higher than 179.7p
Then you might buy at 179.7p and invest, let’s say, £15 per penny.

So, you gain £15 for every penny that the Ladbrokes shares go above 179.7p. On the other hand, such a bet also means you will make a loss of £15 for every penny that the Ladbrokes market goes below 179.7p.

Put another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is worked out by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

With this in mind, if after a few trading sessions the stock started to rise you might decide to close your trade so that you can lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, determined by the spread betting firm, could change to 185.8p - 186.6p. In order to close your position you would sell at 185.8p. Therefore, with the same £15 stake this trade would result in a profit of:

P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = (185.8p - 179.7p) x £15 per penny stake
P&L = 6.1p x £15 per penny stake
P&L = £91.50 profit

Financial spread betting on shares doesn't always go to plan. With this example, you had bet that the share price would rise. Of course, it can also decrease.

If the Ladbrokes share price began to drop then you might choose to close your position in order to limit your losses.

If the market fell to 172.6p - 173.4p you would close your spread bet by selling at 172.6p. This would result in a loss of:

P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = (172.6p - 179.7p) x £15 per penny stake
P&L = -7.1p x £15 per penny stake
P&L = -£106.50 loss

Note: Ladbrokes Rolling Daily market quoted as of 31-Oct-12.
