How to Spread Bet on Ocado

How to Spread Bet on Ocado?

If you want to speculate on companies like Ocado then one solution could be spread trading on the Ocado share price.

Looking at a spread betting website like Financial Spreads, we can see that they have put the Ocado Rolling Daily market at 64.8p - 65.4p. As a result, you can spread bet on the Ocado share price:

  Ocado Trading Example Increasing above 65.4p, or
  Ocado Spread Betting Example Decreasing below 64.8p

Whilst financial spread trading on FTSE 350 equities you trade in x per penny. Therefore, if you choose to have a stake of 4 per penny and the Ocado shares move 24p then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of 96. 4 per penny x 24p = 96.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

This is a Rolling Daily Market which means that it does not have a set settlement date. Should your trade be left open at the end of the trading day, it just rolls over into the next session.

If your position does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Ocado Spread Betting Example Go higher - then you will be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Ocado Spread Betting Example Go lower - then you will normally receive a small credit to your account

For a fully worked example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Ocado Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example

Now, if you think about the spread of 64.8p - 65.4p and make the assumptions that:
  • You've completed your market research, and
  • You think the Ocado share price is likely to go above 65.4p
Then you may decide that you want to buy at 65.4p for a stake of 25 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win 25 for every penny that the Ocado shares push higher than 65.4p. Conversely, however, you will lose 25 for every penny that the Ocado market falls below 65.4p.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, should 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 your stake.

Therefore, if after a few trading sessions the shares rose then you might want to close your position in order to lock in your profit. As an example, should the market rise, the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to 70.0p - 70.6p. You would settle/close your trade by selling at 70.0p. Accordingly, with the same 25 stake your profit would come to:

Your profit / loss = (Settlement Value - Opening Value) x stake
Your profit / loss = (70.0p - 65.4p) x 25 per penny stake
Your profit / loss = 4.6p x 25 per penny stake
Your profit / loss = 115.00 profit

Trading shares doesn't always work out as you would have liked. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Nevertheless, the share price can also decrease.

If the Ocado share price decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could choose to close your trade in order to restrict your losses.

So if the spread dropped to 61.5p - 62.1p then this means you would settle your trade by selling at 61.5p. If so, this would result in a loss of:

Your profit / loss = (Settlement Value - Opening Value) x stake
Your profit / loss = (61.5p - 65.4p) x 25 per penny stake
Your profit / loss = -3.9p x 25 per penny stake
Your profit / loss = -97.50 loss

Note - Ocado Rolling Daily spread betting market taken as of 31-Oct-12.
