How to Spread Bet on American Express

How to Spread Bet on American Express?

If you decide to speculate on firms such as American Express then one option could be spread trading on the American Express share price.

Looking at a spread betting platform like InterTrader, you can see they are offering the American Express Rolling Daily market at $60.10 - $60.19. Therefore, you can put a spread bet on the American Express shares:

  American Express Spread Betting Example Increasing higher than $60.19, or
  American Express Spread Trading Example Decreasing lower than $60.10

Whilst spread betting on S&P 500 shares you trade in £x per cent. So, if you choose to invest £3 per cent and the American Express shares move $0.30 then that would make a difference to your profits (or losses) of £90. £3 per cent x $0.30 = £90.

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

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that unlike a normal futures market, there is no settlement date. Should your trade be left open at the end of the trading day, it will simply roll over to the next trading day.

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

  American Express Spread Trading Example Go up - then you'll be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  American Express Spread Trading Example Go down - then you will often receive a small payment to your account

If you would like a fully worked example then see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

American Express Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Trading Example

If you continue with the above spread of $60.10 - $60.19 and assume:
  • You've analysed the company, and
  • Your research leads you to feel that the American Express share price will move higher than $60.19
Then you might choose to go long of the market at $60.19 and invest £3 per cent.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of £3 for every cent that the American Express shares increase and move above $60.19. Nevertheless, it also means that you will make a loss of £3 for every cent that the American Express market falls lower than $60.19.

Looking at this from another angle, if you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

As a result, if after a few sessions the shares moved higher then you could consider closing your trade to secure your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, could be adjusted to $60.67 - $60.76. In order to close your position you would sell at $60.67. Therefore, with the same £3 stake this trade would make you a profit of:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = ($60.67 - $60.19) x £3 per cent stake
Profit / loss = $0.48 x £3 per cent stake
Profit / loss = 48¢ x £3 per cent stake
Profit / loss = £144 profit

Speculating on equities, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not always straightforward. In this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Naturally, the share price might go down.

If the American Express share price had started to fall then you might choose to close your trade to limit your losses.

If the spread dropped to $59.66 - $59.75 then you would settle your position by selling at $59.66. Accordingly, your loss would be:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = ($59.66 - $60.19) x £3 per cent stake
Profit / loss = -$0.53 x £3 per cent stake
Profit / loss = -53¢ x £3 per cent stake
Profit / loss = -£159 loss
