How to Spread Bet on Experian?
Should you decide to invest in companies like Experian then one possibility could be spread betting on the Experian share price.
Looking at a financial spread betting site like FinancialSpreads, we can see that they are valuing the Experian Rolling Daily market at 1078.4p - 1081.6p. Therefore, you can spread bet on the Experian shares:
Going higher than 1081.6p, or
Going lower than 1078.4p
When financial spread betting on FTSE 350 shares you trade in £x per penny. So, should you decide to invest £2 per penny and the Experian share price moves 39p then that would alter your profits (or losses) by £78. £2 per penny x 39p = £78.
Rolling Daily Equities Markets
One important thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no settlement date. If you leave your trade open at the end of the day, it simply rolls over to the next trading day.
If your position does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:
Go up - then you'll often be charged a small financing fee, or
Go down - then you will normally receive a small credit to your account
For a fully worked example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.
Experian Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Betting Example
If you continue with the spread of 1078.4p - 1081.6p and make the assumptions:
Then you may go long of the market at 1081.6p and risk, for the sake of argument, £5 per penny.
- You've completed your analysis of the company, and
- Your analysis leads you to feel that the Experian shares will increase and move higher than 1081.6p
So, you make a profit of £5 for every penny that the Experian shares rise above 1081.6p. Of course, such a bet also means that you will lose £5 for every penny that the Experian market falls below 1081.6p.
Considering this from another angle, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L 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 price difference by your stake.
With this in mind, if after a few hours the stock started to increase then you might think about closing your trade so that you can guarantee your profit.
As an example, if the market increased then the spread could change to 1114.0p - 1117.2p. In order to close/settle your position you would sell at 1114.0p. So, with the same £5 stake:
Profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (1114.0p - 1081.6p) x £5 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 32.4p x £5 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = £162.00 profit
Trading shares, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not always simple. In this case, you had bet that the share price would rise. Nevertheless, it can also go down.
If the Experian shares decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you might choose to close your position in order to limit your losses.
So if the spread pulled back to 1051.9p - 1055.1p then you would close your position by selling at 1051.9p. Therefore, you would make a loss of:
Profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (1051.9p - 1081.6p) x £5 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -29.7p x £5 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -£148.50 loss
Note - Experian Rolling Daily spread betting market accurate as of 19-Oct-12.
