How to Spread Bet on William Hill

How to Spread Bet on William Hill?

If you are going to speculate on UK listed companies like William Hill then one possibility could be spread trading on the William Hill share price.

Looking at a financial spread betting site like FinancialSpreads, we can see that they are showing the William Hill Rolling Daily market at 337.0p - 338.2p. This means you can spread bet on the William Hill share price:

  William Hill Trading Example Increasing higher than 338.2p, or
  William Hill Spread Trading Example Decreasing lower than 337.0p

Whilst financial spread trading on UK shares you trade in x per penny. Therefore, if you invested 3 per penny and the William Hill share price moves 36p then that would make a difference to your bottom line of 108. 3 per penny x 36p = 108.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and therefore it does not have a settlement date. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

If your spread bet is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:

  William Hill Spread Trading Example Increase - then you will normally be charged a small financing fee, or
  William Hill Spread Trading Example Decrease - then a small payment is often credited to your account

For more information see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

William Hill Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Trading Example

If we think about the spread of 337.0p - 338.2p and make the assumptions that:
  • You've done your analysis of the markets, and
  • You think the William Hill share price looks like it will go above 338.2p
Then you may go long of the market at 338.2p and risk 10 per penny.

With such a bet you make a profit of 10 for every penny that the William Hill shares rise higher than 338.2p. Having said that, it also means that you will make a loss of 10 for every penny that the William Hill market decreases lower than 338.2p.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, if you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are found by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

If after a few days the share price started to increase then you might think about closing your trade and therefore guarantee your profits. So if the market rose then the spread, set by the spread betting company, might move up to 351.7p - 352.9p. In order to close your spread bet you would sell at 351.7p. Accordingly, with the same 10 stake your profit would come to:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (351.7p - 338.2p) x 10 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 13.5p x 10 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 135.00 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread betting or otherwise, can fail to go to plan. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would rise. Naturally, it can also decrease.

If the William Hill stock fell then you might choose to close your trade in order to restrict your losses.

So if the spread fell to 326.4p - 327.6p then you would settle your position by selling at 326.4p. If so, your loss would be calculated as:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (326.4p - 338.2p) x 10 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -11.8p x 10 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -118.00 loss

Note: William Hill Rolling Daily spread betting price correct as of 31-Oct-12.
