How to Spread Bet on Randgold Resources?
If an investor wants to invest in UK listed companies such as Randgold Resources then one option could be spread trading on the Randgold Resources share price.
Looking at a spread trading site like Selftrade Markets, we can see that they are currently valuing the Randgold Resources Rolling Daily market at 7551.2p - 7568.8p. Therefore, an investor could spread bet on the Randgold Resources share price:
Moving above 7568.8p, or
Moving below 7551.2p
Whilst spread betting on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, if you choose to risk £3 per penny and the Randgold Resources share price changes by 33p then that would change your profits (or losses) by £99. £3 per penny x 33p = £99.
Rolling Daily Equities Markets
Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that unlike a normal futures market, there is no closing date. If you decide to leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will just roll over into the next trading session.
Should your spread bet roll over, if you are speculating that the market will:
Rise - then you'll be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
Fall - then you'll often receive a small payment to your account
For a fully worked example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.
Randgold Resources Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Trading Example
If you think about the spread of 7551.2p - 7568.8p and assume that:
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at 7568.8p and invest £2 per penny.
- You've done your equities analysis, and
- Your research leads you to feel the Randgold Resources share price looks like it will increase and move above 7568.8p
So, you win £2 for every penny that the Randgold Resources shares move higher than 7568.8p. Having said that, it also means that you will make a loss of £2 for every penny that the Randgold Resources market goes below 7568.8p.
Considering this from another angle, should you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are worked out by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.
If after a few days the share price started to move upwards then you could choose to close your position so that you can secure your profit.
So if the market rose then the spread might change to 7633.1p - 7650.7p. In order to close your position you would sell at 7633.1p. As a result, with the same £2 stake you would calculate your profit as:
Your profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (7633.1p - 7568.8p) x £2 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = 64.3p x £2 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = £128.60 profit
Trading shares, whether by spread trading or otherwise, doesn't always work out as you would have liked. In this example, you had bet that the share price would rise. Naturally, it can also decrease.
If the Randgold Resources shares fell then you might choose to close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.
So if the spread dropped to 7496.9p - 7514.5p you would settle/close your trade by selling at 7496.9p. So your loss would be calculated as:
Your profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (7496.9p - 7568.8p) x £2 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = -71.9p x £2 per penny stake
Your profits (or losses) = -£143.80 loss
Note - Randgold Resources Rolling Daily equities market correct as of 19-Oct-12.
