How to Spread Bet on Unilever

How to Spread Bet on Unilever?

If an investor is looking to speculate on companies like Unilever then one option could be to spread bet on the Unilever share price.

Logging into SelftradeMarkets, we can see that they are currently valuing the Unilever Rolling Daily market at 2329.8p - 2333.2p. This means you can put a spread bet on the Unilever share price:

  Unilever Spread Trading Example Rising above 2333.2p, or
  Unilever Trading Example Falling below 2329.8p

Whilst financial spread trading on UK shares you trade in x per penny. As a result, if your stake was 3 per penny and the Unilever shares move 29p then there would be a difference to your bottom line of 87. 3 per penny x 29p = 87.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

One important thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so it does not have a settlement date. You do not have to close your trade, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it will roll over to the next session.

If you do roll over a position and you are spread betting that the market will:

  Unilever Trading Example Increase - then you will be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Unilever Trading Example Decrease - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

To see a fully worked example read Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Unilever Rolling Daily - Equities Trading Example

Now, if we think about the spread of 2329.8p - 2333.2p and make the assumptions:
  • You've analysed the stock markets, and
  • You think that the Unilever share price looks like it will push higher than 2333.2p
Then you might decide that you want to buy at 2333.2p for a stake of, for the sake of argument, 2 per penny.

With such a spread bet you win 2 for every penny that the Unilever shares move above 2333.2p. Conversely, however, you will make a loss of 2 for every penny that the Unilever market falls below 2333.2p.

Looked at another way, if you buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is worked out by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

With this in mind, if after a few hours the stock rose then you might want to close your trade in order to lock in your profit. Therefore, if the market moved up then the spread, set by the spread trading firm, might move up to 2403.2p - 2406.6p. You would close your trade by selling at 2403.2p. Therefore, with the same 2 stake:

P&L = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
P&L = (2403.2p - 2333.2p) x 2 per penny stake
P&L = 70.0p x 2 per penny stake
P&L = 140.00 profit

Trading equities can work against you. In this case, you wanted the share price to go up. Of course, it could decrease.

If the Unilever shares had started to drop then you might decide to settle/close your position to stop any further losses.

So if the spread pulled back to 2272.5p - 2275.9p then this means you would settle your trade by selling at 2272.5p. That would mean you would lose:

P&L = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
P&L = (2272.5p - 2333.2p) x 2 per penny stake
P&L = -60.7p x 2 per penny stake
P&L = -121.40 loss

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