How to Spread Bet on Wal-Mart

How to Spread Bet on Wal-Mart?

If an investor decides to speculate on firms such as Wal-Mart then one option could be to spread trade on the Wal-Mart share price.

Logging into FinancialSpreads, you can see that they are currently valuing the Wal-Mart Rolling Daily market at $70.82 - $70.91. This means an investor can spread trade on the Wal-Mart shares:

  Wal-Mart Spread Betting Example Rising above $70.91, or
  Wal-Mart Trading Example Falling below $70.82

When spread trading on S&P 500 equities you trade in x per cent. So, should you decide to risk 2 per cent and the Wal-Mart shares move $0.36 then that would change your profit/loss by 72. 2 per cent x $0.36 = 72.

You are also able to spread bet on this market in Dollars or Euros, e.g. $x per cent.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

This is a Rolling Daily Market which means that there is no preset closing date for this market. If you decide to leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will roll over to the next trading day.

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

  Wal-Mart Trading Example Move up - then you'll pay a small overnight financing fee, or
  Wal-Mart Trading Example Move down - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

To find out more about Rolling Daily Markets read our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Wal-Mart Rolling Daily - US Shares Trading Example

If we think about the spread of $70.82 - $70.91 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have completed your market research, and
  • Your research leads you to feel that the Wal-Mart share price is likely to push above $70.91
Then you may decide that you are going to buy at $70.91 for a stake of, for example, 2 per cent.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of 2 for every cent that the Wal-Mart shares go higher than $70.91. Nevertheless, such a bet also means that you will lose 2 for every cent that the Wal-Mart market moves lower than $70.91.

Considering this from another angle, should you buy a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

As a result, if after a few sessions the stock moved higher then you might want to close your trade to lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to $71.51 - $71.60. You would close your position by selling at $71.51. So, with the same 2 stake your profit would be calculated as:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = ($71.51 - $70.91) x 2 per cent stake
P&L = $0.60 x 2 per cent stake
P&L = 60¢ x 2 per cent stake
P&L = 120 profit

Trading equities, whether by spread betting or not, is not always easy. In this case, you had bet that the share price would increase. Nevertheless, it can also fall.

If the Wal-Mart share price dropped then you might decide to settle/close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

Should the market fall back to $70.22 - $70.31 then you would settle your spread bet by selling at $70.22. Accordingly, your loss would be:

P&L = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
P&L = ($70.22 - $70.91) x 2 per cent stake
P&L = -$0.69 x 2 per cent stake
P&L = -69¢ x 2 per cent stake
P&L = -138 loss

Note: Wal-Mart Rolling Daily spread accurate as of 06-Feb-13.
