How to Spread Bet on Phoenix Group?
If an investor decides to invest in firms such as Phoenix Group then one solution could be to place a spread bet on the Phoenix Group share price.
Looking at a spread trading platform like Capital Spreads, you can see that they are showing the Phoenix Group Rolling Daily market at 635.2p - 639.3p. As a result, an investor can spread bet on the Phoenix Group shares:
Increasing higher than 639.3p, or
Decreasing lower than 635.2p
When financial spread trading on FTSE 350 equities you trade in £x per penny. So, if you chose to have a stake of £4 per penny and the Phoenix Group share price changes by 28p then there would be a difference to your P&L of £112. £4 per penny x 28p = £112.
Rolling Daily Equities Markets
You should note that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market', therefore unlike a futures market, there is no settlement date. Therefore, if you decide not to close your trade by the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next day.
If your bet is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:
Go up - then you will often be charged a small financing fee, or
Go down - then you'll often receive a small payment to your account

Phoenix Group Rolling Daily - Shares Trading Example
If we continue with the spread of 635.2p - 639.3p and make the assumptions that:
Then you may choose to go long of the market at 639.3p and invest, for the sake of argument, £5 per penny.
- You have completed your research, and
- You think that the Phoenix Group share price looks like it will increase and go above 639.3p
Therefore, you win £5 for every penny that the Phoenix Group shares move higher than 639.3p. On the other hand, such a bet also means you will make a loss of £5 for every penny that the Phoenix Group market moves below 639.3p.
Looked at another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are found 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.
As a result, if after a few trading sessions the stock rose then you might consider closing your trade and therefore lock in your profits.
Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, set by the spread betting company, might move up to 661.4p - 665.5p. You would close your trade by selling at 661.4p. As a result, with the same £5 stake you would make:
Profit / loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (661.4p - 639.3p) x £5 per penny stake
Profit / loss = 22.1p x £5 per penny stake
Profit / loss = £110.50 profit
Speculating on equities, by spread betting or otherwise, is not simple. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Of course, the share price might fall.
If the Phoenix Group shares weakened, against your expectations, then you might decide to settle/close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.
So if the market dropped to 620.1p - 624.2p then this means you would settle/close your trade by selling at 620.1p. As a result, your loss would be:
Profit / loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (620.1p - 639.3p) x £5 per penny stake
Profit / loss = -19.2p x £5 per penny stake
Profit / loss = -£96.00 loss
