How to Spread Bet on Anglo American

How to Spread Bet on Anglo American?

If an investor wants to invest in firms such as Anglo American then one solution could be to place a spread bet on the Anglo American share price.

Logging onto Selftrade Markets, you can see they are showing the Anglo American Rolling Daily market at 1902.5p - 1905.5p. As a result, you can spread bet on the Anglo American share price:

  Anglo American Spread Betting Example Increasing higher than 1905.5p, or
  Anglo American Spread Trading Example Decreasing lower than 1902.5p

Whilst spread betting on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. So, if you invested £3 per penny and the Anglo American share price moves 37p then that would make a difference to your profits (or losses) of £111. £3 per penny x 37p = £111.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

It's important to note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal futures market, there is no closing date. If your position is still open at the end of the day, it will roll over to the next session.

If a spread bet is rolled over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Anglo American Spread Trading Example Increase - then you will usually be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Anglo American Spread Trading Example Decrease - then you will often receive a small payment to your account

To see a fully worked example read Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Anglo American Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Trading Example

So, if you take the spread of 1902.5p - 1905.5p and assume:
  • You have analysed the markets, and
  • Your research suggests that the Anglo American shares will move above 1905.5p
Then you could decide that you are going to buy at 1905.5p for a stake of £2 per penny.

Therefore, you win £2 for every penny that the Anglo American shares rise higher than 1905.5p. Having said that, it also means that you will make a loss of £2 for every penny that the Anglo American market goes below 1905.5p.

Put another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is calculated by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

As a result, if the shares moved higher then you might want to close your trade in order to secure your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to 1958.9p - 1961.9p. To settle/close your trade you would sell at 1958.9p. As a result, with the same £2 stake:

Profits (or losses) = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (1958.9p - 1905.5p) x £2 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 53.4p x £2 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = £106.80 profit

Trading equities, whether by spread betting or otherwise, doesn't always go to plan. In this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Nevertheless, the share price could decrease.

If the Anglo American stock began to fall then you could close your trade in order to restrict your losses.

So if the market fell to 1859.8p - 1862.8p then you would settle your position by selling at 1859.8p. So your loss would be calculated as:

Profits (or losses) = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (1859.8p - 1905.5p) x £2 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -45.7p x £2 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -£91.40 loss

Note - Anglo American Rolling Daily market correct as of 19-Oct-12.
