How to Spread Bet on Lockheed Martin

How to Spread Bet on Lockheed Martin?

If an investor wants to speculate on US companies like Lockheed Martin then one option could be to spread trade on the Lockheed Martin share price.

Logging onto Capital Spreads, you can see that they are currently showing the Lockheed Martin Rolling Daily market at $86.86 - $86.97. This means that you can put a spread bet on the Lockheed Martin share price:

  Lockheed Martin Trading Example Increasing higher than $86.97, or
  Lockheed Martin Spread Betting Example Decreasing lower than $86.86

Whilst financial spread betting on US shares you trade in x per cent. As a result, if you decided to have a stake of 5 per cent and the Lockheed Martin shares move $0.28 then that would make a difference to your P&L of 140. 5 per cent x $0.28 = 140.

You can also spread bet on this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. $x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that there is no set settlement date for this market. Therefore, if you decide not to close your trade by the end of the day, it will just roll over into the next day.

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

  Lockheed Martin Spread Betting Example Move up - then you are usually charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Lockheed Martin Spread Betting Example Move down - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

If you would like a fully worked example then see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Lockheed Martin Rolling Daily - US Equities Spread Betting Example

If you take the above spread of $86.86 - $86.97 and assume that:
  • You have done your analysis of the markets, and
  • Your research suggests the Lockheed Martin share price is likely to move above $86.97
Then you may decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at $86.97 for a stake of 3 per cent.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of 3 for every cent that the Lockheed Martin shares increase and move higher than $86.97. Nevertheless, it also means that you will lose 3 for every cent that the Lockheed Martin market decreases below $86.97.

Looking at this from another angle, if you buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is 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 your stake.

As a result, if after a few sessions the share price moved higher then you might want to close your trade in order to lock in your profit. Therefore, if the market moved up then the spread, set by the spread betting company, might move up to $87.32 - $87.43. To close your trade you would sell at $87.32. Accordingly, with the same 3 stake your profit would come to:

Your P&L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Your P&L = ($87.32 - $86.97) x 3 per cent stake
Your P&L = $0.35 x 3 per cent stake
Your P&L = 35¢ x 3 per cent stake
Your P&L = 105 profit

Financial spread betting on shares can fail to go to plan. With this example, you wanted the share price to rise. Naturally, the share price can also fall.

If the Lockheed Martin stock had fallen then you could close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

Should the market fall back to $86.56 - $86.67 then you would settle your spread bet by selling at $86.56. If so, your loss would be calculated as:

Your P&L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Your P&L = ($86.56 - $86.97) x 3 per cent stake
Your P&L = -$0.41 x 3 per cent stake
Your P&L = -41¢ x 3 per cent stake
Your P&L = -123 loss
