Where Can I Find Live Prices and Charts for ITV?

The real-time CFD trading chart and prices below will give users a helpful look at the ITV share price.

The above chart, provided by Plus 500, usually follows the near-term ITV futures price (not the daily market).

To study real time spread betting prices/charts for ITV, you generally need a spread betting account.

This would also let you trade on short-term daily prices. Such accounts are normally dependent on status and credit checks.

If your account application is approved, you will be able to log in and look at the prices and live charts. These are normally provided as part of the service. The catch is that you could receive the occasional letter and/or sales call from your chosen provider.

If you decide to trade then, before starting, remember that contracts for difference and financial spread trading do involve a high level of risk and it's possible to incur losses that exceed your initial investment.

How to Spread Bet on ITV

How to Spread Bet on ITV?

Should an investor decide to speculate on firms such as ITV then one solution could be spread trading on the ITV share price.

Looking at a spread betting website like FinancialSpreads, you can see they are currently offering the ITV Rolling Daily market at 88.8p - 89.1p. Therefore, an investor can spread bet on the ITV share price:

  ITV Spread Trading Example Going above 89.1p, or
  ITV Spread Betting Example Going below 88.8p

When financial spread trading on UK equities you trade in £x per penny. So, if you staked £3 per penny and the ITV share price moves 35p then that would make a difference to your profit/loss of £105. £3 per penny x 35p = £105.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and therefore there is no closing date for this market. If your trade is open at the end of the day, it just rolls over to the next trading session.

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

  ITV Spread Betting Example Move up - then you will often be charged a small financing fee, or
  ITV Spread Betting Example Move down - then a small payment is usually credited to your account

To see a fully worked example read Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

ITV Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Betting Example

Now, if you consider the above spread of 88.8p - 89.1p and assume:
  • You've completed your market analysis, and
  • You feel that the ITV shares are likely to push above 89.1p
Then you might buy at 89.1p and invest £20 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win £20 for every penny that the ITV shares increase and move higher than 89.1p. Nevertheless, it also means that you will lose £20 for every penny that the ITV market goes below 89.1p.

Considering this from another angle, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is found 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 your stake.

If after a few trading sessions the share price moved higher then you might want to close your position and therefore lock in your profits. As an example, should the market rise, the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to 93.6p - 93.9p. In order to close your trade you would sell at 93.6p. As a result, with the same £20 stake your profit would be:

P&L = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
P&L = (93.6p - 89.1p) x £20 per penny stake
P&L = 4.5p x £20 per penny stake
P&L = £90.00 profit

Trading equities, by spread trading or otherwise, is not always easy. In this case, you had bet that the share price would go up. Of course, it can also fall.

If the ITV shares had fallen then you might decide to close/settle your spread bet to limit your losses.

So if the spread pulled back to 83.8p - 84.1p then this means you would settle your spread bet by selling at 83.8p. If so, this would result in a loss of:

P&L = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
P&L = (83.8p - 89.1p) x £20 per penny stake
P&L = -5.3p x £20 per penny stake
P&L = -£106.00 loss

Note - ITV Rolling Daily market correct as of 19-Oct-12.
