How to Spread Bet on Hammerson?
Should an investor decide to invest in UK listed companies such as Hammerson then one possibility could be spread trading on the Hammerson share price.
Looking at a spread trading site like FinancialSpreads.com, you can see that they are currently valuing the Hammerson Rolling Daily market at 478.0p - 478.8p. Therefore, you can put a spread bet on the Hammerson share price:
Moving above 478.8p, or
Moving below 478.0p
When spread betting on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. So, if your stake was £5 per penny and the Hammerson share price moves 28p then that would change your profits (or losses) by £140. £5 per penny x 28p = £140.
Rolling Daily Equities Markets
It is important to note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so there is no preset closing date for this market. If you leave your trade open at the end of the day, it just rolls over into the next session.
If you do roll over a trade and you are spread betting that the market will:
Move higher - then you will pay a small overnight financing fee, or
Move lower - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account
For a fully worked example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.
Hammerson Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example
If we take the spread of 478.0p - 478.8p and make the assumptions:
Then you could choose to go long of the market at 478.8p and risk £5 per penny.
- You've analysed the markets, and
- Your analysis suggests the Hammerson shares are likely to increase and move higher than 478.8p
So, you win £5 for every penny that the Hammerson shares push above 478.8p. Nevertheless, it also means that you will make a loss of £5 for every penny that the Hammerson market goes below 478.8p.
Thinking of this in a slightly different way, should you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.
Therefore, if after a few trading sessions the shares moved higher then you could consider closing your trade to lock in your profit.
So if the market increased then the spread might move to 500.9p - 501.7p. You would settle/close your trade by selling at 500.9p. Therefore, with the same £5 stake you would make a profit of:
Profit = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit = (500.9p - 478.8p) x £5 per penny stake
Profit = 22.1p x £5 per penny stake
Profit = £110.50 profit
Trading equities can work against you. With this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Of course, the share price could fall.
If the Hammerson stock had started to drop then you might decide to settle/close your position to stop any further losses.
So if the market dropped to 459.6p - 460.4p then this means you would settle your position by selling at 459.6p. If so, that would mean you would lose:
Loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Loss = (459.6p - 478.8p) x £5 per penny stake
Loss = -19.2p x £5 per penny stake
Loss = -£96.00 loss
