How to Spread Bet on GlaxoSmithKline

How to Spread Bet on GlaxoSmithKline?

Should an investor decide to invest in firms like GlaxoSmithKline then one solution could be spread betting on the GlaxoSmithKline share price.

Looking at Selftrade Markets, you can see they are currently offering the GlaxoSmithKline Rolling Daily market at 1416.2p - 1418.3p. Therefore, an investor can spread trade on the GlaxoSmithKline shares:

  GlaxoSmithKline Spread Trading Example Going above 1418.3p, or
  GlaxoSmithKline Trading Example Going below 1416.2p

When financial spread trading on FTSE 350 equities you trade in £x per penny. So, if you chose to risk £2 per penny and the GlaxoSmithKline share price changes by 25p then that would alter your profits (or losses) by £50. £2 per penny x 25p = £50.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that it does not have a set closing date. Should your trade be left open at the end of the trading day, it will just roll over into the next trading session.

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

  GlaxoSmithKline Trading Example Increase - then you will pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  GlaxoSmithKline Trading Example Decrease - then you will usually receive a small credit to your account

GlaxoSmithKline Rolling Daily - Shares Trading Example

Now, if you take the above spread of 1416.2p - 1418.3p and assume:
  • You've completed your analysis, and
  • Your research suggests that the GlaxoSmithKline share price looks like it will increase and go above 1418.3p
Then you may choose to go long of the market at 1418.3p and risk, letís say, £3 per penny.

So, you win £3 for every penny that the GlaxoSmithKline shares move higher than 1418.3p. Having said that, it also means that you will lose £3 for every penny that the GlaxoSmithKline market falls below 1418.3p.

Looked at another way, should you buy a spread bet then your profit/loss 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 price difference by your stake.

As a result, if after a few sessions the stock started to rise you might decide to close your position to secure your profit. So if the market moved up then the spread might move to 1458.7p - 1460.8p. You would close your position by selling at 1458.7p. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (1458.7p - 1418.3p) x £3 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = 40.4p x £3 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = £121.20 profit

Speculating on equities, whether by spread betting or not, is not always easy. With this example, you had bet that the share price would go up. Of course, it could go down.

If the GlaxoSmithKline share price had fallen then you might choose to close your position to stop any further losses.

So if the spread pulled back to 1382.8p - 1384.9p you would close your position by selling at 1382.8p. So your loss would be calculated as:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (1382.8p - 1418.3p) x £3 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -35.5p x £3 per penny stake
Profits (or losses) = -£106.50 loss

Note - GlaxoSmithKline Rolling Daily spread betting price accurate as of 19-Oct-12.
