How to Spread Bet on Diageo

How to Spread Bet on Diageo?

Should an investor want to speculate on companies such as Diageo then one possibility could be to place a spread bet on the Diageo share price.

Logging onto, we can see they are valuing the Diageo Rolling Daily market at 1762.6p - 1765.4p. As a result, an investor could spread bet on the Diageo share price:

  Diageo Spread Trading Example Going above 1765.4p, or
  Diageo Spread Betting Example Going below 1762.6p

Whilst making a spread bet on FTSE 350 shares you trade in £x per penny. So, if you decide to invest £4 per penny and the Diageo share price moves 33p then that would make a difference to your P&L of £132. £4 per penny x 33p = £132.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

This is a Rolling Daily Market which means that there is no closing date for this market. If you leave your position open at the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next day.

If you do let your trade roll over into the next day and are spread betting on the market to:

  Diageo Spread Betting Example Increase - then you are normally charged a small financing fee, or
  Diageo Spread Betting Example Decrease - then a small payment is often credited to your account

Diageo Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example

If we continue with the above spread of 1762.6p - 1765.4p and assume:
  • You've completed your stock market research, and
  • Your research suggests that the Diageo shares will increase and go higher than 1765.4p
Then you could decide that you are going to buy at 1765.4p and invest, for the sake of argument, £4 per penny.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of £4 for every penny that the Diageo shares move above 1765.4p. Nevertheless, you will lose £4 for every penny that the Diageo market falls below 1765.4p.

Considering this from another angle, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is worked out by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

Therefore, if after a few sessions the shares moved higher then you could consider closing your position so that you can secure your profit. So if the market rose then the spread, determined by the spread betting firm, could change to 1796.3p - 1799.1p. You would close your spread bet by selling at 1796.3p. So, with the same £4 stake your profit would come to:

Your P&L = (Closing Value - Opening Value) x stake
Your P&L = (1796.3p - 1765.4p) x £4 per penny stake
Your P&L = 30.9p x £4 per penny stake
Your P&L = £123.60 profit

Speculating on equities, whether by spread betting or not, is not always easy. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would increase. However, it can also fall.

If the Diageo share price began to fall then you might decide to settle/close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

So if the market dropped to 1738.9p - 1741.7p then you would settle your trade by selling at 1738.9p. If so, this would result in a loss of:

Your P&L = (Closing Value - Opening Value) x stake
Your P&L = (1738.9p - 1765.4p) x £4 per penny stake
Your P&L = -26.5p x £4 per penny stake
Your P&L = -£106.00 loss

Note: Diageo Rolling Daily spread correct as of 19-Oct-12.
