What You Should Know About Options This Year

Understanding the Spread Betting Platform Spread betting refers to making speculations or assumptions whether there is a rise of fall on the price of an asset. In spread betting, you can gamble everything from commodities to shares and house prices and indices. What’s amazing about it is actually trading without you having to buy the underlying asset. You just need to watch on the prices that is being offered by a spread betting provider if it will rise or fall. As to the process of how spread betting works, an offer is provided by a spread betting firm which is consists of a selling or bid price and a slightly higher buying or offer price. Here is an example: say that the FTSE (Financial Times Stock Exchange) 100 stands at 4500, the spread betting firm more likely will offer you a bid price of 4498, and an offer price of 4502. If you think that the index will rise, you can buy GBP 10.00 for each point at 4502, so get to earn GBP 10.00 for each point that the FTSE 100 rises. So if by the day’s closure the FTSE rises to 4522, you may close your bet and earn a profit of GBP 200.00 (4522-4502= 20 x GBP 10.00). In contrast, if you think that FTSE will fall, then you sell at 4498. If there are high rewards in spread betting, there are also high risks, and you can lose money fast. So let’s just say for example, if you sell the FTSE 100 for GBP 10.00 per point at 4498, and it rises to a spread of 4520/4524, then you lose GBP 260.00. Because of the considerable risks of spread betting, it is advisable to engage in a spread betting firm which can provide you some level of protection, allowing you to be able to eventually settle up using a “deposit margin”. A deposit margin is usually ten percent of the value of your bet, so if your losses exceed the margin, the spread betting firm will demand more money from you, known as the “margin call”, and failure to come up with the amount allows your spread betting firm to close out your position at the current price. It is advisable to stop losses because you can go broke when you just rely on margin calls for controlling your losses.
