How to Spread Bet on Easyjet?
Should you want to speculate on UK companies such as Easyjet then one option could be to place a spread bet on the Easyjet share price.
Looking at a financial spread betting website like FinancialSpreads, we can see that they are currently showing the Easyjet Rolling Daily market at 623.7p - 625.8p. This means that you can put a spread bet on the Easyjet share price:
Moving higher than 625.8p, or
Moving lower than 623.7p
When making a spread bet on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, if you decide to have a stake of £4 per penny and the Easyjet shares move 21p then that would alter your profit/loss by £84. £4 per penny x 21p = £84.
Rolling Daily Shares Markets
One thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that it does not have a settlement date. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it just rolls over into the next day.
If your spread bet is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:
Move higher - then you are charged a small overnight financing fee, or
Move lower - then you'll usually receive a small credit to your account

Easyjet Rolling Daily - Equities Trading Example
So, if you think about the above spread of 623.7p - 625.8p and assume:
Then you might decide to buy a spread bet at 625.8p and invest, for example, £4 per penny.
- You've done your market research, and
- Your research leads you to feel the Easyjet shares look like they will move higher than 625.8p
With such a bet you make a profit of £4 for every penny that the Easyjet shares increase and move above 625.8p. Having said that, such a bet also means that you will lose £4 for every penny that the Easyjet market goes lower than 625.8p.
Thinking of this in a slightly different 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 initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.
Therefore, if after a few days the stock moved higher then you might want to close your spread bet to lock in your profit.
So if the market rose then the spread might move to 648.6p - 650.7p. You would settle your position by selling at 648.6p. Therefore, with the same £4 stake you would make a profit of:
P&L = (Closing Value - Initial Value) x stake
P&L = (648.6p - 625.8p) x £4 per penny stake
P&L = 22.8p x £4 per penny stake
P&L = £91.20 profit
Trading shares, by spread betting or otherwise, is not always simple. In this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. However, it might decrease.
If the Easyjet shares fell then you might choose to close your spread bet to limit your losses.
So if the market pulled back to 599.2p - 601.3p then you would settle your trade by selling at 599.2p. That would mean you would lose:
P&L = (Closing Value - Initial Value) x stake
P&L = (599.2p - 625.8p) x £4 per penny stake
P&L = -26.6p x £4 per penny stake
P&L = -£106.40 loss
