How to Spread Bet on M&S

For example, let’s assume you are considering taking a position on M&S, so you look at a financial spread betting site, like Inter Trader, and see the live market price of:

Marks & Spencer Rolling Daily: 345.7p – 346.2p

Here’s what you need to know

The Spread Betting Market Marks & Spencer Rolling Daily
The Quote 345.7p – 346.2p
This Means You can spread bet on the Marks & Spencer Rolling Daily market to push:

  arrow_upward  Above 346.2p, or
  arrow_downward  Below 345.7p

This is a Rolling Daily spread bet which means that there is no expiry date for this spread bet. If you don’t 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 normally either be credited or debited for overnight financing based on whether you are speculating on the market to go up or down.

For additional information also see how a rolling spread bet works.
Units Traded Bets on the Marks & Spencer market are priced in £x per penny.

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

E.g. if Marks & Spencer changes by 40p then you would lose or gain 40 multiples of your stake.
Trade Size You decide how much you want to trade per penny, e.g. £1 per penny, £3 per penny, £8 per penny etc.
Quick Staking Example If, as an example, you went with a stake of £4 per penny and Marks & Spencer moves by 30p, you would win/lose £4 per penny x 30p = £120.
