Should you want to study spread betting charts/prices for Visa, you may require a spread trading account.

You can also use a spreads account to trade on the short term daily prices. Accounts are normally dependent on status and suitability checks.

Should your new account be approved, you can log in and analyse the live charts/prices. On most platforms, these are provided for free. The catch is that you are likely to get the odd newsletter and/or sales call from the relevant spread trading company.

If you do decide to trade then you should note that financial spread trading and CFDs do carry a significant level of risk to your capital and can result in losses that exceed your initial investment.

How to Spread Bet on Visa

How to Spread Bet on Visa?

If you decide to speculate on US listed companies such as Visa then one possibility could be to spread trade on the Visa share price.

Looking at a platform like Selftrade Markets, we can see they are currently offering the Visa Rolling Daily market at $159.68 - $159.91. This means you can spread bet on the Visa shares:

  Visa Spread Trading Example Rising above $159.91, or
  Visa Trading Example Falling below $159.68

When spread trading on S&P 500 equities you trade in £x per cent. As a result, if you choose to invest £2 per cent and the Visa share price moves $0.29 then that would make a difference to your P&L of £58. £2 per cent x $0.29 = £58.

Note that you are also able to trade this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. $x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

One important thing to note is that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market' and therefore there is no closing date for this market. You do not have to close your trade, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it just rolls over into the next session.

If your spread bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Visa Trading Example Increase - then you'll pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  Visa Trading Example Decrease - then you will often receive a small payment to your account

You can learn more in our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Visa Rolling Daily - US Shares Trading Example

So, if you consider the above spread of $159.68 - $159.91 and assume:
  • You've completed your analysis of the company, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think that the Visa shares look like they will go above $159.91
Then you may decide that you want to go long of the market at $159.91 and risk £2 per cent.

With such a spread bet you win £2 for every cent that the Visa shares rise higher than $159.91. Of course, you will make a loss of £2 for every cent that the Visa market decreases below $159.91.

Put another way, if 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 the stake.

Therefore, if after a few hours the share price started to increase then you might want to close your position to lock in your profit. As an example, should the market rise, the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to $160.87 - $161.10. You would settle your position by selling at $160.87. As a result, with the same £2 stake your profit would be:

Profit = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit = ($160.87 - $159.91) x £2 per cent stake
Profit = $0.96 x £2 per cent stake
Profit = 96¢ x £2 per cent stake
Profit = £192 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not easy. In this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Of course, the share price might decrease.

If the Visa shares began to fall then you might decide to settle/close your trade in order to limit your losses.

So if the market fell to $159.03 - $159.26 then this means you would close your trade by selling at $159.03. Accordingly, your loss would be:

Loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Loss = ($159.03 - $159.91) x £2 per cent stake
Loss = -$0.88 x £2 per cent stake
Loss = -88¢ x £2 per cent stake
Loss = -£176 loss

Note: Visa Rolling Daily spread betting market taken as of 06-Feb-13.
