How to Spread Bet on eBay

How to Spread Bet on eBay?

If you are looking to speculate on companies like eBay then one possibility could be to spread trade on the eBay share price.

Looking at a spread betting website like Financial Spreads, you can see that they are currently showing the eBay Rolling Daily market at $56.13 - $56.20. As a result, you can spread bet on the eBay share price:

  eBay Spread Trading Example Increasing higher than $56.20, or
  eBay Spread Betting Example Decreasing lower than $56.13

Whilst spread betting on US equities you trade in x per cent. So, if you decided to invest 3 per cent and the eBay share price moves $0.29 then that would make a difference to your bottom line of 87. 3 per cent x $0.29 = 87.

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

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

This is a Rolling Daily Market which means that unlike a futures market, there is no settlement date. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it will just roll over into the next day.

If you allow your bet to roll over and are spread betting on the market to:

  eBay Spread Betting Example Move up - then you would normally pay a small financing fee, or
  eBay Spread Betting Example Move down - then a small payment is normally credited to your account

eBay Rolling Daily - US Equities Spread Betting Example

If you consider the spread of $56.13 - $56.20 and assume that:
  • You have completed your market research, and
  • You think that the eBay share price will rise above $56.20
Then you might choose to go long of the market at $56.20 and invest, for example, 2 per cent.

So, you gain 2 for every cent that the eBay shares move higher than $56.20. Conversely, however, you will lose 2 for every cent that the eBay market decreases below $56.20.

Looking at this from another angle, if you were to buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are worked out by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

If after a few trading sessions the shares moved higher then you could consider closing your trade and therefore lock in your profits. So if the market moved up then the spread, set by the spread betting company, might move up to $56.96 - $57.03. You would close your spread bet by selling at $56.96. As a result, with the same 2 stake this trade would result in a profit of:

Your Profit / loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Your Profit / loss = ($56.96 - $56.20) x 2 per cent stake
Your Profit / loss = $0.76 x 2 per cent stake
Your Profit / loss = 76¢ x 2 per cent stake
Your Profit / loss = 152 profit

Trading equities, whether by spread betting or not, is not simple. In the above example, you wanted the share price to rise. Naturally, it can also fall.

If the eBay stock weakened, against your expectations, then you might choose to close your spread bet to stop any further losses.

If the market fell to $55.53 - $55.60 then this means you would settle your trade by selling at $55.53. If so, this would result in a loss of:

Your Profit / loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Your Profit / loss = ($55.53 - $56.20) x 2 per cent stake
Your Profit / loss = -$0.67 x 2 per cent stake
Your Profit / loss = -67¢ x 2 per cent stake
Your Profit / loss = -134 loss
