Other useful information about your trade

  • Risk

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (20%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

We traded Swire Pacific Ltd at £10.00 (your stake) a point. The price of 0087.HK on Hong Kong Stock is 14.1. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 14.1) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£14,100.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£10.00 (your stake) x 14.1 = £14,100.00(max potential risk)

therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

  • Reward

The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 20% on 0087.HK .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £2,820.00 (20% of the full value £14,100.00 ) and gained £5.64 . The reward made was 0% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

Reward Spread betting
£5.64 (profit)  /  £2,820.00(deposit)   = 0% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (Swire Pacific Ltd (0087.HK)) not leveraged on the Hong Kong Stock, your reward would have been 4% (£5.64 / £14,100.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£5.64 profit  /  £14,100.00 (cost to buy 0087.HK ) = 4% return

Other useful information about your trade

  • Risk

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (25%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

We traded China Jicheng Holdings Ltd at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of 1027.HK on Hong Kong Stock is 0.22. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 0.22) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£1,100.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£50.00 (your stake) x 0.22 = £1,100.00(max potential risk)

therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

  • Reward

The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 25% on 1027.HK .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £275.00 (25% of the full value £1,100.00 ) and gained £220.00 . The reward made was 80% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

Reward Spread betting
£220.00 (profit)  /  £275.00(deposit)   = 80% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (China Jicheng Holdings Ltd (1027.HK)) not leveraged on the Hong Kong Stock, your reward would have been 20% (£220.00 / £1,100.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£220.00 profit  /  £1,100.00 (cost to buy 1027.HK ) = 20% return

The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 10% on 2600.HK .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £826.00 (10% of the full value £8,260.00 ) and gained £330.40 . The reward made was 40% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

Reward Spread betting
£330.40 (profit)  /  £826.00(deposit)   = 40% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (Aluminum Corp of China Ltd (2600.HK)) not leveraged on the Hong Kong Stock, your reward would have been 4% (£330.40 / £8,260.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£330.40 profit  /  £8,260.00 (cost to buy 2600.HK ) = 4% return

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (10%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

We traded Belle International Holdings Ltd at £20.00 (your stake) a point. The price of 1880.HK on Hong Kong Stock is 5.28. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 5.28) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£10,560.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£20.00 (your stake) x 5.28 = £10,560.00(max potential risk)

therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading
