How to Spread Bet on Alcoa

How to Spread Bet on Alcoa?

Should you want to invest in firms such as Alcoa then one option could be spread betting on the Alcoa share price.

Looking at a financial spread betting website like Capitalspreads, you can see that they are pricing the Alcoa Rolling Daily market at $8.89 - $8.92. This means an investor could put a spread bet on the Alcoa share price:

  Alcoa Spread Trading Example Rising above $8.92, or
  Alcoa Spread Betting Example Falling below $8.89

When spread betting on US shares you trade in x per cent. Therefore, if you invest 4 per cent and the Alcoa shares move $0.24 then that would make a difference to your profit/loss of 96. 4 per cent x $0.24 = 96.

Note that you can also trade this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

You should note that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no closing date. If your position is still open at the end of the day, it just rolls over into the next day.

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

  Alcoa Spread Betting Example Go up - then you'll pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  Alcoa Spread Betting Example Go down - then you'll often receive a small payment to your account

For a fully worked example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Alcoa Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Betting Example

If we consider the spread of $8.89 - $8.92 and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your equities analysis, and
  • You think the Alcoa shares look like they will move higher than $8.92
Then you may decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at $8.92 and invest 10 per cent.

With such a spread bet you win 10 for every cent that the Alcoa shares push above $8.92. Conversely, however, it also means that you will lose 10 for every cent that the Alcoa market moves lower than $8.92.

Looked at another way, should you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

Therefore, if after a few trading sessions the shares rose then you might want to close your position in order to guarantee your profit. So if the market moved up then the spread might move to $9.07 - $9.10. You would close your position by selling at $9.07. So, with the same 10 stake your profit would come to:

Profit = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit = ($9.07 - $8.92) x 10 per cent stake
Profit = $0.15 x 10 per cent stake
Profit = 15¢ x 10 per cent stake
Profit = 150 profit

Speculating on shares, by spread betting or otherwise, is not always easy. With this example, you had bet that the share price would rise. Nevertheless, the share price might decrease.

If the Alcoa share price decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could close your position in order to restrict your losses.

So if the spread pulled back to $8.75 - $8.78 then you would sell back your position at $8.75. If so, that would mean you would lose:

Loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Loss = ($8.75 - $8.92) x 10 per cent stake
Loss = -$0.17 x 10 per cent stake
Loss = -17¢ x 10 per cent stake
Loss = -170 loss

Note - Alcoa Rolling Daily spread betting price correct as of 06-Feb-13.
