How to Spread Bet on General Electric

How to Spread Bet on General Electric?

If an investor is looking to invest in firms such as General Electric then one solution is a spread bet on the General Electric share price.

Looking at Financial Spreads, we can see they are currently offering the General Electric Rolling Daily market at $22.32 - $22.37. This means you could spread bet on the General Electric shares:

  General Electric Spread Trading Example Going above $22.37, or
  General Electric Spread Betting Example Going below $22.32

When financial spread trading on US shares you trade in £x per cent. As a result, if you staked £3 per cent and the General Electric shares move $0.29 then that would change your profit/loss by £87. £3 per cent x $0.29 = £87.

You are also able to trade this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. $x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

One important thing to note is that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market' and therefore in contrast with futures markets, there is no closing date. Therefore, if you decide not to close your trade by the end of the day, it will roll over to the next session.

If a bet is rolled over and you are speculating on the market to:

  General Electric Spread Betting Example Go up - then you'll normally be charged a small financing fee, or
  General Electric Spread Betting Example Go down - then a small payment is normally credited to your account

For a more detailed breakdown of Rolling Daily Markets please read our article Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

General Electric Rolling Daily - US Equities Spread Betting Example

If you consider the above spread of $22.32 - $22.37 and assume:
  • You have analysed the equities market, and
  • You think that the General Electric shares are likely to push higher than $22.37
Then you might choose to go long of the market at $22.37 and risk, letís say, £5 per cent.

So, you win £5 for every cent that the General Electric shares move above $22.37. Nevertheless, it also means that you will make a loss of £5 for every cent that the General Electric market goes lower than $22.37.

Looked at another way, if you buy a spread bet then your P&L is 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 the stake.

Therefore, if after a few sessions the shares started to increase then you might think about closing your trade in order to secure your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread might change to $22.62 - $22.67. You would close your trade by selling at $22.62. Therefore, with the same £5 stake you would make a profit of:

Profit = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = ($22.62 - $22.37) x £5 per cent stake
Profit = $0.25 x £5 per cent stake
Profit = 25¢ x £5 per cent stake
Profit = £125 profit

Speculating on equities, whether by spread betting or not, is not always straightforward. In this case, you had bet that the share price would increase. However, the share price could go down.

If the General Electric stock weakened, against your expectations, then you could close your position to limit your losses.

If the market fell to $22.08 - $22.13 then this means you would settle your spread bet by selling at $22.08. That would mean you would make a loss of:

Loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = ($22.08 - $22.37) x £5 per cent stake
Loss = -$0.29 x £5 per cent stake
Loss = -29¢ x £5 per cent stake
Loss = -£145 loss

Note: General Electric Rolling Daily equities market quoted as of 06-Feb-13.
