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 New World Resources Plc at £500.00 (your stake) a point. The price of NWRR.L on London Stock Exchange is 0.15. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 0.15) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£7,500.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£500.00 (your stake) x 0.15 = £7,500.00(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 NWRR.L .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £1,875.00 (25% of the full value £7,500.00 ) and gained £600.00 . The reward made was 32% 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
£600.00 (profit)  /  £1,875.00(deposit)   = 32% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (New World Resources Plc (NWRR.L)) not leveraged on the London Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 8% (£600.00 / £7,500.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£600.00 profit  /  £7,500.00 (cost to buy NWRR.L ) = 8% return
  • Slippage

Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (15%) 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 Alliance Trust PLC at £20.00 (your stake) a point. The price of ATST.L on London Stock Exchange is 691.5. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 691.5) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£13,830.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£20.00 (your stake) x 691.5 = £13,830.00(max potential risk)

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

If instead you were buying the asset (Alliance Trust PLC (ATST.L)) not leveraged on the London Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 4% (£553.20 / £13,830.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged

    • 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 (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 iShares EmergingAsiaLocalGovtBdUCITS ETF USD(Dist) at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of IGEA.L on London Stock Exchange is 88.3. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 88.3) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£4,415.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

    £50.00 (your stake) x 88.3 = £4,415.00(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 10% on IGEA.L .

    If instead you were buying the asset (iShares EmergingAsiaLocalGovtBdUCITS ETF USD(Dist) (IGEA.L)) not leveraged on the London Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 8% (£353.20 / £4,415.00)

    Buying the asset non leveraged

      Percent move 12 points
      Percent in points 12 points
      Trade size £30.00 a point
      Profit or loss  £365.70

      Profit and loss calculation

      The profit is calculated = £30.00 (your stake)  x  + 12 points (closing price – opening price)

      Profit
      £30.00 (your stake)  x  + 12 = + £365.70

      The loss – If instead Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI Wld Consmr Staples TR C-EUR (STPW.L) moved down 4% to a new price of 292.56, the loss would be calculated for STPW.L on a downmovement of – 12 points – old price – new price. The loss would have been

      Loss
      £30.00 (your stake)  x  – 12 = – £365.70

      As you can see from the example above, spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given the deposit required is only a fraction of the trade value (10% margin required on IG). In the next section I will go over briefly the ful potential risk of the trade we exampled above in Lyxor MSCI World Consumer Staples TR UCITS ETF – C-USD STPW.L on London Stock Exchange (USD).




      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 (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 Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI Wld Consmr Staples TR C-EUR at £30.00 (your stake) a point. The price of STPW.L on London Stock Exchange is 304.75. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 304.75) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£9,142.50), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

      £30.00 (your stake) x 304.75 = £9,142.50(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 10% on STPW.L .

      For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £914.25 (10% of the full value £9,142.50 ) and gained £365.70 . 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
      £365.70 (profit)  /  £914.25(deposit)   = 40% (return)

      If instead you were buying the asset (Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI Wld Consmr Staples TR C-EUR (STPW.L)) not leveraged on the London Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 4% (£365.70 / £9,142.50)

      Buying the asset non leveraged
      £365.70 profit  /  £9,142.50 (cost to buy STPW.L ) = 4% return
      • Slippage

      Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

      Another factor to consider is if you hold your trade in Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI Wld Consmr Staples TR C-EUR over night, when the London Stock Exchange is closed( Trading hours are 08:00 AM – 04:30 PM(0 Hours GMT) in United Kingdom ), and there is majour news that will affect the price in Lyxor MSCI World Consumer Staples TR UCITS ETF – C-USD, you can suffer slippage.

          *** in these examples we are spread betting in Sterling(GBP). The calculations, and profit/loss will be in GBP. You can trade in the assets local currency or your platform’s currency

          A few days later  INS.L on London Stock Exchange has moved up 4% to a new price of 225. Instem PLC has moved up 9 points (new price -old price)

          March 12 – Close long trade

           

          Price – 12 March 2017 225

          Percent move 9 points
          Percent in points 9 points
          Trade size £50.00 a point
          Profit or loss  £433.00

          Profit and loss calculation

          The profit is calculated = £50.00 (your stake)  x  + 9 points (closing price – opening price)

          Profit
          £50.00 (your stake)  x  + 9 = + £433.00

          The loss – If instead Instem PLC (INS.L) moved down 4% to a new price of 207.84, the loss would be calculated for INS.L on a downmovement of – 9 points – old price – new price. The loss would have been

          Loss
          £50.00 (your stake)  x  – 9 = – £433.00

          As you can see from the example above, spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given the deposit required is only a fraction of the trade value (25% margin required on IG). In the next section I will go over briefly the ful potential risk of the trade we exampled above in Instem PLC INS.L on London Stock Exchange (GBP).




          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 Instem PLC at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of INS.L on London Stock Exchange is 216.5. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 216.5) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£10,825.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

          £50.00 (your stake) x 216.5 = £10,825.00(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 INS.L .

          For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £2,706.25 (25% of the full value £10,825.00 ) and gained £433.00 . The reward made was 16% 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
          £433.00 (profit)  /  £2,706.25(deposit)   = 16% (return)

          If instead you were buying the asset (Instem PLC (INS.L)) not leveraged on the London Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 4% (£433.00 / £10,825.00)

          Buying the asset non leveraged
          £433.00 profit  /  £10,825.00 (cost to buy INS.L ) = 4% return
          • Slippage

          Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

          Another factor to consider is if you hold your trade in Instem PLC over night, when the London Stock Exchange is closed( Trading hours are 08:00 AM – 04:30 PM(0 Hours GMT) in United Kingdom ), and there is majour news that will affect the price in Instem PLC, you can suffer slippage. Your stoploss or take profit will trade at the first available price when the market opens.
