How to Spread Bet on Netflix

How to Spread Bet on Netflix?

Should an investor decide to speculate on US listed companies such as Netflix then one option is to spread bet on the Netflix share price.

Looking at a website like Selftrade Markets, you can see that they are showing the Netflix Rolling Daily market at $181.25 - $181.91. Therefore, an investor could spread trade on the Netflix share price:

  Netflix Spread Betting Example Increasing higher than $181.91, or
  Netflix Trading Example Decreasing lower than $181.25

When financial spread trading on S&P 500 shares you trade in £x per cent. So, should you decide to risk £3 per cent and the Netflix share price changes by $0.31 then that would be a difference to your bottom line of £93. £3 per cent x $0.31 = £93.

You can also trade this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so there is no predetermined settlement date for this market. As a result, if your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

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

  Netflix Trading Example Go up - then you'll usually be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Netflix Trading Example Go down - then you will normally receive a small credit to your account

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Netflix Rolling Daily - US Equities Trading Example

So, if we think about the spread of $181.25 - $181.91 and assume:
  • You've done your stock market research, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think the Netflix share price will rise higher than $181.91
Then you could decide to buy a spread bet at $181.91 and invest, letís say, £1 per cent.

So, you gain £1 for every cent that the Netflix shares go above $181.91. Of course, you will lose £1 for every cent that the Netflix market goes lower than $181.91.

Put another way, if you were to buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated 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.

As a result, if the stock moved higher then you could consider closing your position and therefore lock in your profits. As an example, should the market rise, the spread, set by the spread trading firm, might move up to $183.37 - $184.03. To settle/close your trade you would sell at $183.37. Accordingly, with the same £1 stake your profit would be:

Profit = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit = ($183.37 - $181.91) x £1 per cent stake
Profit = $1.46 x £1 per cent stake
Profit = 146¢ x £1 per cent stake
Profit = £146 profit

Speculating on shares, whether by spread trading or otherwise, doesn't always go to plan. In this case, you wanted the share price to rise. Nevertheless, it might fall.

If the Netflix share price decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could close your trade to stop any further losses.

So if the market dropped to $180.27 - $180.93 then you would settle your trade by selling at $180.27. If so, this would result in a loss of:

Loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Loss = ($180.27 - $181.91) x £1 per cent stake
Loss = -$1.64 x £1 per cent stake
Loss = -164¢ x £1 per cent stake
Loss = -£164 loss

Note: Netflix Rolling Daily spread betting market correct as of 06-Feb-13.
