How to Spread Bet on Ladbrokes

As an example, let’s imagine that you are thinking of taking a position on Ladbrokes, so you look at a financial spread betting site, such as Financial Spreads, and see that they are offering the quote at:

Ladbrokes Rolling Daily: 127.5p – 128.2p

Here’s how the trade works:

The Market: Ladbrokes Rolling Daily
The Price: 127.5p – 128.2p
How the Spread Works: You can bet on the Ladbrokes Rolling Daily market to move:

  arrow_upward  Higher than 128.2p, or
  arrow_downward  Lower than 127.5p

This market is a Rolling Daily market which means that there is no final closing date. If you haven’t closed your trade and the session ends then your trade will roll over into the next session.

Note: if a trade rolls over then you will normally either be credited or debited for overnight financing based on whether you are speculating on the market to rise or fall.

For further information, please read our guide to daily spread bets.
Units (Points) Traded: Trades on the Ladbrokes market are made in £x per penny.

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

E.g. if Ladbrokes moves 45p then you would lose/win 45 times your stake.
Trade Size: You choose how much you want to trade per penny, e.g. £1 per penny, £4 per penny, £10 per penny etc.
Brief Staking Example: For example, if your stake was £4 per penny and Ladbrokes changes by 22p, you would lose / win £4 per penny x 22p = £88.


Worked Trading Example | Going Long of Ladbrokes

Financial spread trading on the UK bookmarker’s shares to rise

You Choose Whether to Buy or Sell: Ladbrokes to push:

  arrow_upward  Higher than 128.2p? or
  arrow_downward  Lower than 127.5p?

You Might Decide to Go Long:   arrow_upward  Higher than 128.2p
You Decide How Much to Risk, Let’s Assume You Choose: £15 per penny
So What Now?
  • You make a profit of £15 for every penny Ladbrokes goes higher than 128.2p
  • Your trade loses £15 for each penny Ladbrokes decreases below 128.2p
If You Go Long With a Spread Bet Your P/L = (Closing Value – Initial Value) x stake per penny
 
Scenario 1 Ladbrokes climbs and the market moves to 133.0p – 133.7p.
Lock in Your Profit? At this point, you can decide to leave your position open or close it, i.e. close your position to lock in a profit. In this instance you choose to settle your position by selling the market at 133.0p.
Your P/L = (Closing Value – Initial Value) x stake per penny
(133.0p – 128.2p) x £15 per penny
4.8p x £15 per penny
Your P/L = £72.00 profit
 
Scenario 2 Ladbrokes drops and the spread trading market is adjusted to 122.8p – 123.5p.
Restrict Your Loss? You can decide to keep your trade open or close it in order to restrict your loss. For this example, you opt to settle your position by selling at 122.8p.
Your P/L = (Closing Value – Initial Value) x stake per penny
(122.8p – 128.2p) x £15 per penny
-5.4p x £15 per penny
Your P/L = -£81.00 loss

Time to Take Your Profit? You could decide to leave your bet open or close it, i.e. close your trade to lock in a profit. In this instance you opt to close your position by buying the market at 123.2p.

Your P/L = £64.50 profit
