How to Spread Bet on 3M

How to Spread Bet on 3M?

If you decide to invest in firms like 3M then one option could be spread betting on the 3M share price.

Logging into, we can see they are currently pricing the 3M Rolling Daily market at $102.60 - $102.73. This means that you can put a spread bet on the 3M shares:

  3M Spread Betting Example Going above $102.73, or
  3M Spread Trading Example Going below $102.60

Whilst financial spread trading on S&P 500 shares you trade in £x per cent. Therefore, if you decided to risk £3 per cent and the 3M shares move $0.34 then that would be a difference to your bottom line of £102. £3 per cent x $0.34 = £102.

You can also invest in this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

It is important to note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no closing date. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it just rolls over to the next trading session.

If your bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  3M Spread Trading Example Increase - then you normally pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  3M Spread Trading Example Decrease - then you will usually receive a small credit to your account

For a more detailed example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

3M Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Trading Example

So, if we continue with the spread of $102.60 - $102.73 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have done your analysis, and
  • Your research suggests the 3M share price looks like it will increase and move above $102.73
Then you may decide to buy at $102.73 for a stake of, letís say, £3 per cent.

With such a spread bet you win £3 for every cent that the 3M shares move higher than $102.73. Nevertheless, it also means that you will lose £3 for every cent that the 3M market decreases below $102.73.

Considering this from another angle, should you buy a spread bet then your P&L is calculated by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

If after a few days the stock rose then you might want to close your trade to secure your profit. So if the market increased then the spread, determined by the spread betting firm, could change to $103.24 - $103.37. You would settle your position by selling at $103.24. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake you would calculate your profit as:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = ($103.24 - $102.73) x £3 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = $0.51 x £3 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = 51¢ x £3 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = £153 profit

Financial spread betting is not always simple. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would go up. Naturally, it might fall.

If the 3M share price weakened, against your expectations, then you might decide to settle/close your trade in order to limit your losses.

So if the spread dropped to $102.32 - $102.45 you would settle your position by selling at $102.32. Accordingly, your loss would be:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = ($102.32 - $102.73) x £3 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -$0.41 x £3 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -41¢ x £3 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -£123 loss
