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 Franklin Electric Co Inc at £100.00 (your stake) a point. The price of FELE.O on Nasdaq is 42.35. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 42.35) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£4,235.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£100.00 (your stake) x 42.35 = £4,235.00(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 FELE.O .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £423.50 (10% of the full value £4,235.00 ) and gained £338.80 . 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
£338.80 (profit)  /  £423.50(deposit)   = 80% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (Franklin Electric Co Inc (FELE.O)) not leveraged on the Nasdaq, your reward would have been 8% (£338.80 / £4,235.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£338.80 profit  /  £4,235.00 (cost to buy FELE.O ) = 8% return

Profit
£100.00 (your stake)  x  + 3 = + £337.44

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 Healthcare Services Group Inc at £100.00 (your stake) a point. The price of HCSG.O on Nasdaq is 42.18. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 42.18) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£4,218.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£100.00 (your stake) x 42.18 = £4,218.00(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 HCSG.O .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £421.80 (10% of the full value £4,218.00 ) and gained £337.44 . 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
£337.44 (profit)  /  £421.80(deposit)   = 80% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (Healthcare Services Group Inc (HCSG.O)) not leveraged on the Nasdaq, your reward would have been 8% (£337.44 / £4,218.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£337.44 profit  /  £4,218.00 (cost to buy HCSG.O ) = 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

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 IPG Photonics Corp at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of IPGP.O on Nasdaq is 118.82. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 118.82) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£5,941.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£50.00 (your stake) x 118.82 = £5,941.00(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 IPGP.O .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £594.10 (10% of the full value £5,941.00 ) and gained £475.28 . 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
£475.28 (profit)  /  £594.10(deposit)   = 80% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (IPG Photonics Corp (IPGP.O)) not leveraged on the Nasdaq, your reward would have been 8% (£475.28 / £5,941.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£475.28 profit  /  £5,941.00 (cost to buy IPGP.O ) = 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

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 YRC Worldwide Inc at £15.00 (your stake) a point. The price of YRCW.O on Nasdaq is 13.02. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 13.02) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£19,530.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£15.00 (your stake) x 13.02 = £19,530.00(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 YRCW.O .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £3,906.00 (20% of the full value £19,530.00 ) and gained £5.86 . 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
£5.86 (profit)  /  £3,906.00(deposit)   = 0% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (YRC Worldwide Inc (YRCW.O)) not leveraged on the Nasdaq, your reward would have been 3% (£5.86 / £19,530.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£5.86 profit  /  £19,530.00 (cost to buy YRCW.O ) = 3% return
