How to Spread Bet on Hargreaves Lansdown?
If you decide to speculate on companies such as Hargreaves Lansdown then one possibility is to spread bet on the Hargreaves Lansdown share price.
Looking at a site like InterTrader, we can see they have priced the Hargreaves Lansdown Rolling Daily market at 809.0p - 811.5p. This means that an investor could put a spread bet on the Hargreaves Lansdown shares:
Rising above 811.5p, or
Falling below 809.0p
Whilst spread trading on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. So, if you decide to invest £4 per penny and the Hargreaves Lansdown share price moves 21p then that would be a difference to your bottom line of £84. £4 per penny x 21p = £84.
Rolling Daily Equities Markets
One important thing to note is that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market' and therefore unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no settlement date. You do not have to close your position, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it will roll over to the next session.
If your spread bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:
Increase - then you'll be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
Decrease - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

Hargreaves Lansdown Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example
If you take the above spread of 809.0p - 811.5p and make the assumptions that:
Then you may decide that you want to buy a spread bet at 811.5p for a stake of £5 per penny.
- You have done your analysis of the company, and
- Your research suggests the Hargreaves Lansdown shares are likely to increase and move above 811.5p
With such a bet you make a profit of £5 for every penny that the Hargreaves Lansdown shares push higher than 811.5p. Of course, such a bet also means that you will lose £5 for every penny that the Hargreaves Lansdown market moves below 811.5p.
Considering this from another angle, if you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.
Therefore, if after a few hours the stock started to rise you might decide to close your spread bet so that you can lock in your profit.
Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, set by the spread trading firm, might move up to 837.9p - 840.4p. In order to close your spread bet you would sell at 837.9p. Accordingly, with the same £5 stake you would calculate your profit as:
Your profits (or losses) = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (837.9p - 811.5p) x £5 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = 26.4p x £5 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = £132.00 profit
Spread betting is not straightforward. In the above example, you wanted the share price to increase. Of course, it can also go down.
If the Hargreaves Lansdown share price weakened, against your expectations, then you could close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.
Should the spread fall back to 788.4p - 790.9p then this means you would close your spread bet by selling at 788.4p. Accordingly, your loss would be:
Your profits (or losses) = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (788.4p - 811.5p) x £5 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = -23.1p x £5 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = -£115.50 loss
Note - Hargreaves Lansdown Rolling Daily spread accurate as of 08-Feb-13.
