How to Spread Bet on Standard Chartered

How to Spread Bet on Standard Chartered?

Should you decide to speculate on UK listed companies like Standard Chartered then one possibility could be spread trading on the Standard Chartered share price.

Looking at a website like Capital Spreads, we can see they have priced the Standard Chartered Rolling Daily market at 1483.7p - 1486.3p. As a result, you can spread bet on the Standard Chartered shares:

  Standard Chartered Spread Trading Example Moving higher than 1486.3p, or
  Standard Chartered Trading Example Moving lower than 1483.7p

When spread trading on FTSE 350 equities you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, if you choose to have a stake of £4 per penny and the Standard Chartered shares move 26p then that would make a difference to your profit/loss of £104. £4 per penny x 26p = £104.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

It is important to note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so it does not have a set settlement date. You do not have to close your position, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it simply keeps rolling over into the next day.

Should your position roll over, if you are speculating that the market will:

  Standard Chartered Trading Example Move up - then you would normally pay a small financing fee, or
  Standard Chartered Trading Example Move down - then a small payment is often credited to your account

You can find more on Rolling Daily Markets, as well as a fully worked example, in our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Standard Chartered Rolling Daily - Equities Trading Example

If we continue with the spread of 1483.7p - 1486.3p and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your equities analysis, and
  • Your research suggests that the Standard Chartered share price is likely to increase and go above 1486.3p
Then you could choose to buy a spread bet at 1486.3p and risk, letís say, £3 per penny.

This means that you win £3 for every penny that the Standard Chartered shares push higher than 1486.3p. Conversely, however, you will make a loss of £3 for every penny that the Standard Chartered market falls lower than 1486.3p.

Considering this from another angle, if you were to buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are worked out by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

With this in mind, if after a few sessions the shares started to move upwards then you could choose to close your spread bet so that you can secure your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, could be adjusted to 1530.9p - 1533.5p. You would close your trade by selling at 1530.9p. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake your profit would be calculated as:

Profit = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
Profit = (1530.9p - 1486.3p) x £3 per penny stake
Profit = 44.6p x £3 per penny stake
Profit = £133.80 profit

Trading equities, by spread trading or otherwise, is not always easy. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Naturally, it could fall.

If the Standard Chartered stock dropped then you might decide to settle/close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

So if the market dropped to 1447.7p - 1450.3p you would settle your spread bet by selling at 1447.7p. As a result, your loss would be:

Loss = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
Loss = (1447.7p - 1486.3p) x £3 per penny stake
Loss = -38.6p x £3 per penny stake
Loss = -£115.80 loss

Note: Standard Chartered Rolling Daily market correct as of 19-Oct-12.
