The Plus 500 chart that we use above is typically based on the underlying Sainsburys futures price (not the spot market).

A spreads account will also let you have access to shorter term spot markets. Users should note that opening an account is subject to status and credit checks.

If you want to trade then remember that CFD trading and financial spread betting involve a high level of risk and it's possible to incur losses that exceed your initial investment.

Will Sainsburys Have to Wait Until the End of 2015 Before Seeing a Bounce?

With the supermarket expected to report slowing Christmas sales, IG talk to David Battersby from Redmayne-Bentley about the strategy going forward and the potential for shrinking margins.

Mr Battersby believes that any changes that Tesco will have to make could well be forced on the rest of the sector in order to maintain competitiveness.

How to Spread Bet on Sainsburys

How to Spread Bet on Sainsburys?

If you are going to speculate on UK listed companies such as Sainsburys then one solution is a spread bet on the Sainsburys share price.

Looking at a site like InterTrader, you can see they have put the Sainsburys Rolling Daily market at 358.6p - 359.2p. This means you could spread bet on the Sainsburys share price:

  Sainsburys Trading Example Increasing above 359.2p, or
  Sainsburys Spread Betting Example Decreasing below 358.6p

When making a spread bet on FTSE 350 shares you trade in £x per penny. As a result, if you staked £3 per penny and the Sainsburys share price moves 35p then that would be a difference to your P&L of £105. £3 per penny x 35p = £105.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

Note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and therefore unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no settlement date. If your trade is open at the end of the day, it just rolls over into the next day.

If you do roll over a position and you are spread betting that the market will:

  Sainsburys Spread Betting Example Go up - then you will be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Sainsburys Spread Betting Example Go down - then you'll usually receive a small credit to your account

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Sainsburys Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Betting Example

If you think about the above spread of 358.6p - 359.2p and assume:
  • You have done your equities analysis, and
  • Your research suggests that the Sainsburys share price is likely to push above 359.2p
Then you could choose to buy at 359.2p and risk, for the sake of argument, £15 per penny.

This means that you win £15 for every penny that the Sainsburys shares increase and go higher than 359.2p. On the other hand, such a bet also means you will make a loss of £15 for every penny that the Sainsburys market moves below 359.2p.

Looked at another way, if you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is worked out 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 days the shares moved higher then you might want to close your spread bet to lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread might move to 370.0p - 370.6p. You would settle your position by selling at 370.0p. Accordingly, with the same £15 stake you would make a profit of:

Profit = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = (370.0p - 359.2p) x £15 per penny stake
Profit = 10.8p x £15 per penny stake
Profit = £162.00 profit

Speculating on shares, whether by spread trading or otherwise, can work against you. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Naturally, it might decrease.

If the Sainsburys stock had fallen then you might decide to close/settle your position to stop any further losses.

Should the spread fall back to 349.5p - 350.1p you would close your position by selling at 349.5p. That would mean you would make a loss of:

Loss = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = (349.5p - 359.2p) x £15 per penny stake
Loss = -9.7p x £15 per penny stake
Loss = -£145.50 loss

Note: Sainsburys Rolling Daily spread betting price quoted as of 19-Oct-12.
