How to Spread Bet on Cisco

How to Spread Bet on Cisco?

If you are going to invest in companies such as Cisco then one option is to spread trade on the Cisco share price.

Looking at a site like InterTrader, you can see that they are currently showing the Cisco Rolling Daily market at $20.99 - $21.04. As a result, an investor could spread trade on the Cisco share price:

  Cisco Trading Example Increasing higher than $21.04, or
  Cisco Spread Trading Example Decreasing lower than $20.99

Whilst spread betting on US shares you trade in £x per cent. So, if you chose to invest £2 per cent and the Cisco share price moves $0.36 then that would make a difference to your profits (or losses) of £72. £2 per cent x $0.36 = £72.

You can also spread bet on this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. $x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

You should note that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market', therefore unlike a futures market, there is no settlement date. Should your trade be left open at the end of the trading day, it will just roll over into the next day.

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

  Cisco Spread Trading Example Rise - then you are usually charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Cisco Spread Trading Example Fall - then you will usually receive a small credit to your account

For more information see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Cisco Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Trading Example

So, if you consider the above spread of $20.99 - $21.04 and make the assumptions:
  • You have analysed the company, and
  • You feel that the Cisco shares are likely to increase and move above $21.04
Then you might choose to go long of the market at $21.04 for a stake of £4 per cent.

Therefore, you make a profit of £4 for every cent that the Cisco shares move higher than $21.04. On the other hand, it also means you will lose £4 for every cent that the Cisco market decreases below $21.04.

Looked at another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

With this in mind, if after a few hours the shares moved higher then you could consider closing your spread bet in order to guarantee your profit. So if the market increased then the spread might change to $21.40 - $21.45. In order to close/settle your position you would sell at $21.40. Therefore, with the same £4 stake your profit would be:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = ($21.40 - $21.04) x £4 per cent stake
P&L = $0.36 x £4 per cent stake
P&L = 36¢ x £4 per cent stake
P&L = £144 profit

Spread betting doesn't always go to plan. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would go up. Nevertheless, the share price could fall.

If the Cisco share price decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could choose to close your position in order to limit your losses.

Should the spread pull back to $20.71 - $20.76 then this means you would close your spread bet by selling at $20.71. So your loss would be calculated as:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = ($20.71 - $21.04) x £4 per cent stake
P&L = -$0.33 x £4 per cent stake
P&L = -33¢ x £4 per cent stake
P&L = -£132 loss

Note - Cisco Rolling Daily equities market taken as of 06-Feb-13.
