How to Spread Bet on Tesco

How to Spread Bet on Tesco?

If you decide to invest in UK listed companies like Tesco then one possibility could be spread betting on the Tesco share price.

Logging onto Capitalspreads, we can see they have priced the Tesco Rolling Daily market at 317.8p - 318.3p. Therefore, you can spread bet on the Tesco shares:

  Tesco Trading Example Going higher than 318.3p, or
  Tesco Spread Betting Example Going lower than 317.8p

When spread betting on FTSE 350 shares you trade in £x per penny. As a result, should you choose to invest £3 per penny and the Tesco shares move 35p then that would alter your bottom line by £105. £3 per penny x 35p = £105.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that unlike a futures market, there is no closing date. If your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it just rolls over to the next trading session.

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

  Tesco Spread Betting Example Rise - then you will usually be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Tesco Spread Betting Example Fall - then you will normally receive a small credit to your account

For more information see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Tesco Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example

Now, if you consider the above spread of 317.8p - 318.3p and make the assumptions that:
  • You've done your analysis, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think that the Tesco share price will go higher than 318.3p
Then you could decide that you want to go long of the market at 318.3p and invest £10 per penny.

This means that you win £10 for every penny that the Tesco shares move above 318.3p. Nevertheless, such a bet also means that you will lose £10 for every penny that the Tesco market decreases lower than 318.3p.

Looking at this from another angle, if you were to ‘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 difference in price by your stake.

Therefore, if after a few trading sessions the shares started to rise you might decide to close your trade to lock in your profit. So if the market rose then the spread, set by the spread betting company, could change to 328.5p - 329.0p. To settle/close your trade you would sell at 328.5p. So, with the same £10 stake you would calculate your profit as:

Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Your P&L = (328.5p - 318.3p) x £10 per penny stake
Your P&L = 10.2p x £10 per penny stake
Your P&L = £102.00 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread betting or not, doesn't always go to plan. In this example, you had bet that the share price would go up. Naturally, it could go down.

If the Tesco stock began to fall then you might decide to settle/close your spread bet in order to restrict your losses.

If the market fell to 306.4p - 306.9p then you would close your spread bet by selling at 306.4p. Accordingly, your loss would be:

Your P&L = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Your P&L = (306.4p - 318.3p) x £10 per penny stake
Your P&L = -11.9p x £10 per penny stake
Your P&L = -£119.00 loss

Note: Tesco Rolling Daily spread betting market quoted as of 19-Oct-12.
