How to Spread Bet on EasyJet

For example, let’s say that you are thinking of taking a position on EasyJet, you go on a financial spread betting website, e.g. Financial Spreads, and are presented with the latest quote at:

EasyJet Rolling Daily: 365.7p – 367.4p

Here is how the trade works.

The Spread Trading Market: EasyJet Rolling Daily
Spread Trading Price: 365.7p – 367.4p
How the Market Works: You can speculate on the EasyJet Rolling Daily market to move:

  arrow_upward  Higher than 367.4p, or
  arrow_downward  Lower than 365.7p

This spread betting market is a ‘Rolling Daily’ market and so there is no settlement date. If you decide not to close your position and the session ends then your trade will automatically roll over to the next session.

Note: if a trade is rolled over then you will either be credited or debited for overnight financing depending upon the direction of your trade.

For further information, please read our guide to daily spread betting.
Trading Units: Spread trades on the EasyJet market are priced in £x per penny.

Where a penny is 1p of the UK equity’s price movement.

E.g. if EasyJet moves 50p then you would lose or gain 50 multiples of your stake.
Stake Size per Unit: You choose how much you want to stake per penny, e.g. £1 per penny, £5 per penny, £20 per penny etc.
Short Staking Exercise: As an example, if you chose a stake of £3 per penny and EasyJet changes by 25p, you would win / lose £3 per penny x 25p = £75.
