How to Spread Bet on JC Penney

How to Spread Bet on JC Penney?

If an investor is looking to speculate on US listed companies like JC Penney then one solution could be to spread trade on the JC Penney share price.

Looking at a spread trading platform like capital spreads, you can see they have priced the JC Penney Rolling Daily market at $19.37 - $19.42. Therefore, an investor can spread trade on the JC Penney shares:

  JC Penney Spread Betting Example Moving above $19.42, or
  JC Penney Trading Example Moving below $19.37

Whilst financial spread trading on S&P 500 equities you trade in £x per cent. So, if you chose to have a stake of £4 per cent and the JC Penney share price changes by $0.35 then that would be a difference to your P&L of £140. £4 per cent x $0.35 = £140.

Note that you are also able to trade this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

One important thing to note is that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market' and therefore unlike a normal futures market, there is no closing date. Should your trade be left open at the end of the trading day, it simply rolls over to the next session.

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

  JC Penney Trading Example Move up - then you'll pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  JC Penney Trading Example Move down - then a small payment is usually credited to your account

You can find more on Rolling Daily Markets, as well as a fully worked example, in our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

JC Penney Rolling Daily - US Shares Trading Example

Now, if we continue with the above spread of $19.37 - $19.42 and assume that:
  • You've done your analysis of the equities market, and
  • You think the JC Penney share price looks like it will rise higher than $19.42
Then you may buy a spread bet at $19.42 and invest, for the sake of argument, £10 per cent.

So, you gain £10 for every cent that the JC Penney shares move above $19.42. Having said that, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of £10 for every cent that the JC Penney market goes below $19.42.

Looking at this from another angle, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is calculated by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

If after a few days the stock rose then you might want to close your position and therefore lock in your profits. So if the market rose then the spread, set by the spread trading firm, might move up to $19.57 - $19.62. To close your trade you would sell at $19.57. So, with the same £10 stake your profit would be calculated as:

Profit = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = ($19.57 - $19.42) x £10 per cent stake
Profit = $0.15 x £10 per cent stake
Profit = 15¢ x £10 per cent stake
Profit = £150 profit

Spread betting on equities is not easy. In this case, you had bet that the share price would increase. Naturally, the share price could go down.

If the JC Penney shares had fallen then you could choose to close your trade in order to restrict your losses.

Should the spread drop to $19.26 - $19.31 you would settle your trade by selling at $19.26. That would mean you would make a loss of:

Loss = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = ($19.26 - $19.42) x £10 per cent stake
Loss = -$0.16 x £10 per cent stake
Loss = -16¢ x £10 per cent stake
Loss = -£160 loss

Note: JC Penney Rolling Daily spread quoted as of 06-Feb-13.
