How to Spread Bet on Petrofac

How to Spread Bet on Petrofac?

Should an investor decide to invest in companies such as Petrofac then one option is to spread bet on the Petrofac share price.

Looking at a financial spread betting website like Capitalspreads, you can see that they have priced the Petrofac Rolling Daily market at 1628.1p - 1631.9p. As a result, you could spread bet on the Petrofac shares:

  Petrofac Trading Example Going higher than 1631.9p, or
  Petrofac Spread Trading Example Going lower than 1628.1p

Whilst financial spread trading on FTSE 350 shares you trade in £x per penny. As a result, if you risked £5 per penny and the Petrofac shares move 21p then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of £105. £5 per penny x 21p = £105.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that there is no settlement date for this market. If you decide to leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will roll over to the next trading day.

If a position is rolled over and you are spread betting on the market to:

  Petrofac Spread Trading Example Go up - then you'll often be charged a small financing fee, or
  Petrofac Spread Trading Example Go down - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

To learn more about Rolling Daily Markets please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Petrofac Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Trading Example

Now, if you consider the above spread of 1628.1p - 1631.9p and assume:
  • You have completed your market research, and
  • Your analysis leads you to feel the Petrofac share price will push higher than 1631.9p
Then you may choose to buy a spread bet at 1631.9p for a stake of £3 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win £3 for every penny that the Petrofac shares move above 1631.9p. However, you will lose £3 for every penny that the Petrofac market falls below 1631.9p.

Looking at this from another angle, if you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

If after a few trading sessions the stock rose then you might want to close your spread bet to secure your profit. Therefore, if the market moved up then the spread, determined by the spread betting firm, could change to 1672.7p - 1676.5p. In order to close/settle your position you would sell at 1672.7p. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake you would make a profit of:

P&L = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
P&L = (1672.7p - 1631.9p) x £3 per penny stake
P&L = 40.8p x £3 per penny stake
P&L = £122.40 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not easy. In the above example, you wanted the share price to rise. However, the share price could fall.

If the Petrofac share price began to drop then you could choose to close your trade in order to limit your losses.

So if the market dropped to 1596.0p - 1599.8p then you would settle/close your trade by selling at 1596.0p. As a result, your loss would be:

P&L = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
P&L = (1596.0p - 1631.9p) x £3 per penny stake
P&L = -35.9p x £3 per penny stake
P&L = -£107.70 loss

Note: Petrofac Rolling Daily market taken as of 19-Oct-12.
