How to Spread Bet on Melrose

How to Spread Bet on Melrose?

If you want to speculate on UK listed companies such as Melrose then one option could be to spread trade on the Melrose share price.

Looking at InterTrader, we can see they have priced the Melrose Rolling Daily market at 245.0p - 245.7p. This means an investor could spread trade on the Melrose share price:

  Melrose Spread Betting Example Going higher than 245.7p, or
  Melrose Spread Trading Example Going lower than 245.0p

Whilst spread betting on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. So, if you chose to have a stake of £4 per penny and the Melrose share price changes by 36p then that would make a difference to your profit/loss of £144. £4 per penny x 36p = £144.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that there is no closing date for this market. You do not have to close your position, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it will simply roll over to the next session.

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

  Melrose Spread Trading Example Go higher - then you are charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Melrose Spread Trading Example Go lower - then you will usually receive a small credit to your account

To see a fully worked example read Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Melrose Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Trading Example

So, if we think about the spread of 245.0p - 245.7p and make the assumptions:
  • You have analysed the stock market, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think the Melrose share price will increase and move higher than 245.7p
Then you may decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at 245.7p and invest, for the sake of argument, £15 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win £15 for every penny that the Melrose shares push above 245.7p. On the other hand, it also means you will make a loss of £15 for every penny that the Melrose market moves below 245.7p.

Looking at this from another angle, 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.

If after a few trading sessions the stock rose then you might consider closing your spread bet in order to secure your profit. As an example, should the market rise, the spread, determined by the spread betting firm, could change to 256.1p - 256.8p. To settle/close your trade you would sell at 256.1p. Accordingly, with the same £15 stake this trade would make you a profit of:

Profit = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit = (256.1p - 245.7p) x £15 per penny stake
Profit = 10.4p x £15 per penny stake
Profit = £156.00 profit

Speculating on equities, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not simple. In this case, you had bet that the share price would increase. However, it can also go down.

If the Melrose share price had started to fall then you could choose to close your spread bet in order to restrict your losses.

If the spread dropped to 236.1p - 236.8p then this means you would sell back your position at 236.1p. If so, that would mean you would lose:

Loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Loss = (236.1p - 245.7p) x £15 per penny stake
Loss = -9.6p x £15 per penny stake
Loss = -£144.00 loss

Note - Melrose Rolling Daily spread betting price correct as of 19-Oct-12.
