How to Spread Bet on Lloyds

How to Spread Bet on Lloyds?

Should you want to speculate on UK listed companies such as Lloyds then one solution could be to spread trade on the Lloyds share price.

Looking at a spread betting site like capital spreads, we can see they have priced the Lloyds Rolling Daily market at 40.5p - 40.8p. Therefore, an investor could spread bet on the Lloyds share price:

  Lloyds Spread Trading Example Increasing above 40.8p, or
  Lloyds Spread Betting Example Decreasing below 40.5p

Whilst making a spread bet on FTSE 350 shares you trade in x per penny. As a result, if you choose to invest 4 per penny and the Lloyds share price moves 26p then that would change your P&L by 104. 4 per penny x 26p = 104.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

One important thing to note is that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market' and therefore unlike a normal futures market, there is no closing date. You do not have to close your trade, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

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

  Lloyds Spread Betting Example Move up - then you normally pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  Lloyds Spread Betting Example Move down - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

Lloyds Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example

So, if you continue with the above spread of 40.5p - 40.8p and make the assumptions that:
  • You have done your analysis of the shares, and
  • Your research leads you to think the Lloyds shares look like they will move above 40.8p
Then you may decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at 40.8p and invest, for example, 25 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win 25 for every penny that the Lloyds shares go higher than 40.8p. Nevertheless, you will make a loss of 25 for every penny that the Lloyds market moves lower than 40.8p.

Looking at this from another angle, if you buy a spread bet then your P&L is calculated by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

Therefore, if after a few hours the stock rose then you might consider closing your spread bet to lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread might change to 44.4p - 44.7p. You would settle your position by selling at 44.4p. Therefore, with the same 25 stake this trade would result in a profit of:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Value - Opening Value) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (44.4p - 40.8p) x 25 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 3.6p x 25 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 90.00 profit

Trading equities, whether by spread trading or otherwise, is not simple. In this example, you had bet that the share price would go up. Of course, the share price might go down.

If the Lloyds share price began to drop then you could choose to close your spread bet to limit your losses.

If the market fell to 36.6p - 36.9p you would settle your position by selling at 36.6p. That would mean you would make a loss of:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Value - Opening Value) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (36.6p - 40.8p) x 25 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -4.2p x 25 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -105.00 loss

Note - Lloyds Rolling Daily spread betting market correct as of 19-Oct-12.
