How to Spread Bet on Goldman Sachs

How to Spread Bet on Goldman Sachs?

Should you want to speculate on companies such as Goldman Sachs then one solution could be spread trading on the Goldman Sachs share price.

Looking at a spread trading website like SelftradeMarkets, you can see that they are currently pricing the Goldman Sachs Rolling Daily market at $150.05 - $150.26. As a result, you can spread bet on the Goldman Sachs share price:

  Goldman Sachs Trading Example Moving higher than $150.26, or
  Goldman Sachs Spread Trading Example Moving lower than $150.05

Whilst financial spread trading on S&P 500 shares you trade in £x per cent. Therefore, if you decide to invest £3 per cent and the Goldman Sachs shares move $0.34 then that would be a difference to your P&L of £102. £3 per cent x $0.34 = £102.

You can also trade this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

One thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that there is no closing date for this market. If you leave your position open at the end of the day, it will roll over to the next session.

If your spread bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Goldman Sachs Spread Trading Example Rise - then you would normally pay a small financing fee, or
  Goldman Sachs Spread Trading Example Fall - then a small payment is often credited to your account

For a more detailed example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Goldman Sachs Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Trading Example

Now, if we take the above spread of $150.05 - $150.26 and assume:
  • You've completed your analysis, and
  • You feel that the Goldman Sachs share price looks like it will rise higher than $150.26
Then you might decide that you want to buy at $150.26 and invest, let’s say, £2 per cent.

Therefore, you make a profit of £2 for every cent that the Goldman Sachs shares increase and move above $150.26. Having said that, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of £2 for every cent that the Goldman Sachs market goes below $150.26.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, if you ‘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 price difference by the stake.

As a result, if after a few trading sessions the shares moved higher then you might want to close your position in order to guarantee your profit. So if the market increased then the spread, set by the spread betting company, could change to $151.16 - $151.37. To close your position you would sell at $151.16. Therefore, with the same £2 stake your profit would be calculated as:

P&L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = ($151.16 - $150.26) x £2 per cent stake
P&L = $0.90 x £2 per cent stake
P&L = 90¢ x £2 per cent stake
P&L = £180 profit

Speculating on equities can work against you. With this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. However, the share price can also decrease.

If the Goldman Sachs stock weakened, against your expectations, then you might choose to close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

So if the spread dropped to $149.28 - $149.49 you would settle your trade by selling at $149.28. That would mean you would make a loss of:

P&L = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = ($149.28 - $150.26) x £2 per cent stake
P&L = -$0.98 x £2 per cent stake
P&L = -98¢ x £2 per cent stake
P&L = -£196 loss

Note - Goldman Sachs Rolling Daily spread quoted as of 06-Feb-13.
