How to Spread Bet on Vodafone

How to Spread Bet on Vodafone?

If an investor wants to invest in UK listed companies such as Vodafone then one possibility could be spread betting on the Vodafone share price.

Looking at a spread trading platform like FinancialSpreads, we can see they are pricing the Vodafone Rolling Daily market at 176.9p - 177.2p. This means you can put a spread bet on the Vodafone shares:

  Vodafone Trading Example Moving above 177.2p, or
  Vodafone Spread Betting Example Moving below 176.9p

Whilst financial spread betting on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. So, should you decide to risk £5 per penny and the Vodafone share price moves 31p then that would change your P&L by £155. £5 per penny x 31p = £155.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that unlike a normal 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 session.

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

  Vodafone Spread Betting Example Rise - then you will often be charged a small financing fee, or
  Vodafone Spread Betting Example Fall - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

To find out more about Rolling Daily Markets read our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Vodafone Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example

So, if we think about the spread of 176.9p - 177.2p and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your equities analysis, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think that the Vodafone share price will move above 177.2p
Then you could buy a spread bet at 177.2p and risk, let’s say, £20 per penny.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of £20 for every penny that the Vodafone shares go higher than 177.2p. However, you will lose £20 for every penny that the Vodafone market falls lower than 177.2p.

Put another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

Therefore, if after a few hours the shares rose then you might consider closing your spread bet in order to lock in your profit. So if the market moved up then the spread might move to 182.5p - 182.8p. To close your trade you would sell at 182.5p. Therefore, with the same £20 stake your profit would be calculated as:

Profit = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit = (182.5p - 177.2p) x £20 per penny stake
Profit = 5.3p x £20 per penny stake
Profit = £106.00 profit

Speculating on shares, by spread betting or otherwise, doesn't always work out as you would have liked. In the above example, you wanted the share price to increase. Naturally, it can also decrease.

If the Vodafone stock decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could close your position to stop any further losses.

So if the market dropped to 171.0p - 171.3p you would close your position by selling at 171.0p. That would mean you would lose:

Loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Loss = (171.0p - 177.2p) x £20 per penny stake
Loss = -6.2p x £20 per penny stake
Loss = -£124.00 loss

Note: Vodafone Rolling Daily spread quoted as of 19-Oct-12.
