How to Spread Bet on Bank of America

How to Spread Bet on Bank of America?

If an investor wants to speculate on companies such as Bank of America then one possibility could be to spread trade on the Bank of America share price.

Logging into FinancialSpreads, we can see that they are pricing the Bank of America Rolling Daily market at $11.89 - $11.92. This means an investor could spread bet on the Bank of America shares:

  Bank of America Spread Trading Example Going higher than $11.92, or
  Bank of America Spread Betting Example Going lower than $11.89

When financial spread trading on S&P 500 equities you trade in x per cent. Therefore, if you invested 3 per cent and the Bank of America share price moves $0.23 then that would make a difference to your P&L of 69. 3 per cent x $0.23 = 69.

Note that you are also able to invest in this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

One thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that it does not have a closing date. If your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it just rolls over to the next day.

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

  Bank of America Spread Betting Example Go up - then you are charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Bank of America Spread Betting Example Go down - then you'll often receive a small payment to your account

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

Bank of America Rolling Daily - US Equities Spread Betting Example

So, if you take the spread of $11.89 - $11.92 and make the assumptions that:
  • You've done your market analysis, and
  • You think the Bank of America share price is likely to move above $11.92
Then you might choose to go long of the market at $11.92 for a stake of, for the sake of argument, 5 per cent.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of 5 for every cent that the Bank of America shares push higher than $11.92. Nevertheless, you will lose 5 for every cent that the Bank of America market decreases below $11.92.

Looked at another way, if 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 price difference by your stake.

As a result, if after a few hours the share price started to increase then you might think about closing your spread bet and therefore lock in your profits. As an example, if the market increased then the spread could change to $12.12 - $12.15. You would close your spread bet by selling at $12.12. So, with the same 5 stake your profit would be calculated as:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = ($12.12 - $11.92) x 5 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = $0.20 x 5 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = 20¢ x 5 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = 100 profit

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

If the Bank of America stock decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could close your spread bet to stop any further losses.

If the spread dropped to $11.74 - $11.77 then this means you would sell back your position at $11.74. As a result, your loss would be:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = ($11.74 - $11.92) x 5 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -$0.18 x 5 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -18¢ x 5 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -90 loss

Note - Bank of America Rolling Daily spread betting market accurate as of 06-Feb-13.
