How to Spread Bet on Starbucks

How to Spread Bet on Starbucks?

If you decide to speculate on companies like Starbucks then one solution is a spread bet on the Starbucks share price.

Looking at a spread trading site like SelftradeMarkets, we can see that they are pricing the Starbucks Rolling Daily market at $56.02 - $56.11. As a result, an investor could spread trade on the Starbucks shares:

  Starbucks Spread Trading Example Increasing higher than $56.11, or
  Starbucks Trading Example Decreasing lower than $56.02

When financial spread betting on S&P 500 shares you trade in x per cent. Therefore, if you decide to have a stake of 4 per cent and the Starbucks shares move $0.24 then that would make a difference to your P&L of 96. 4 per cent x $0.24 = 96.

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 which means that there is no closing date for this market. If you leave your trade open at the end of the day, it simply rolls over to the next trading day.

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

  Starbucks Trading Example Rise - then you are charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Starbucks Trading Example Fall - then you will often receive a small payment to your account

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Starbucks Rolling Daily - US Equities Trading Example

Now, if you think about the above spread of $56.02 - $56.11 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have done your equities analysis, and
  • Your research leads you to feel the Starbucks shares are likely to rise higher than $56.11
Then you may decide that you want to go long of the market at $56.11 and invest, for example, 2 per cent.

So, you gain 2 for every cent that the Starbucks shares push above $56.11. Of course, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of 2 for every cent that the Starbucks market moves lower than $56.11.

Looking at this from another angle, should you buy a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the settlement 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 after a few days the stock started to increase then you might want to close your spread bet and therefore lock in your profits. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread could change to $56.64 - $56.73. To close your position you would sell at $56.64. As a result, with the same 2 stake you would make:

Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Your P&L = ($56.64 - $56.11) x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = $0.53 x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = 53¢ x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = 106 profit

Spread betting on shares can go against you. In the above example, you wanted the share price to increase. However, it could decrease.

If the Starbucks share price weakened, against your expectations, then you might choose to close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

So if the market pulled back to $55.66 - $55.75 then you would close your trade by selling at $55.66. That would mean you would lose:

Your P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Your P&L = ($55.66 - $56.11) x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = -$0.45 x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = -45¢ x 2 per cent stake
Your P&L = -90 loss

Note - Starbucks Rolling Daily equities market accurate as of 06-Feb-13.
