How to Spread Bet on Morgan Stanley

How to Spread Bet on Morgan Stanley?

If you decide to invest in companies such as Morgan Stanley then one solution could be spread betting on the Morgan Stanley share price.

Looking at a spread betting platform like FinancialSpreads, we can see that they are pricing the Morgan Stanley Rolling Daily market at $23.44 - $23.49. As a result, an investor can spread bet on the Morgan Stanley share price:

  Morgan Stanley Spread Trading Example Going higher than $23.49, or
  Morgan Stanley Spread Betting Example Going lower than $23.44

When spread betting on US equities you trade in £x per cent. Therefore, if you chose to risk £5 per cent and the Morgan Stanley share price moves $0.38 then that would change your profit/loss by £190. £5 per cent x $0.38 = £190.

You are also able to spread bet on this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that it does not have a set closing date. As a result, if your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it will just roll over into the next day.

If your position is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:

  Morgan Stanley Spread Betting Example Rise - then you usually pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  Morgan Stanley Spread Betting Example Fall - 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.

Morgan Stanley Rolling Daily - US Shares Spread Betting Example

If you consider the spread of $23.44 - $23.49 and assume:
  • You've completed your stock market analysis, and
  • Your analysis suggests that the Morgan Stanley share price is likely to push above $23.49
Then you might choose to buy at $23.49 for a stake of, for the sake of argument, £3 per cent.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of £3 for every cent that the Morgan Stanley shares go higher than $23.49. However, such a bet also means that you will lose £3 for every cent that the Morgan Stanley market moves lower than $23.49.

Looked at another way, if you were to ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is worked out by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

As a result, if after a few days the shares rose then you might consider closing your position so that you can guarantee your profit. So if the market rose then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to $23.84 - $23.89. In order to close your position you would sell at $23.84. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake you would make:

Profit = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit = ($23.84 - $23.49) x £3 per cent stake
Profit = $0.35 x £3 per cent stake
Profit = 35¢ x £3 per cent stake
Profit = £105 profit

Speculating on shares, whether by spread betting or not, is not always straightforward. In this case, you wanted the share price to go up. Of course, it could go down.

If the Morgan Stanley share price fell then you could choose to close your trade in order to limit your losses.

Should the spread pull back to $23.18 - $23.23 then this means you would settle your spread bet by selling at $23.18. If so, that would mean you would lose:

Loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Loss = ($23.18 - $23.49) x £3 per cent stake
Loss = -$0.31 x £3 per cent stake
Loss = -31¢ x £3 per cent stake
Loss = -£93 loss

Note - Morgan Stanley Rolling Daily spread betting market accurate as of 06-Feb-13.
