Long term Spread Bet

Recommended Posts

I am new to spread betting but I have a fair amount of experience in options trading with LEAPS (Long Expiry) options. I want to place some long put trades on both shares and on index options.  How can I calculate the costs of maintaining these positions?

Hey @doney21

With share options you will need to call us to trade them and receive the premium. Our Spread betting options will have the cost included in the option price, CFDs will have a commission per side. 

With index trading, our charge is included in your premium. So, if you were buying one put option on the FTSE and the price was 5, your premium would be (5 x 1 x £10 per point) = £50. This is the maximum you can lose for this trade and IG don't charge you commission the fee is built into that price. 

I hope this helps. If you need me for anything else '@' me into the post :)

    • There is an interesting development in the price action for Copper as the chart below shows: Soybean is also looking interesting at the same time. Soybean Oil has been on a good run. I shall end this chart feast with Soybean Meal!  
    • told you he was good 🙂
    • Podcast interviewing Chris Weston, (previously of IG Australia). I haven't heard the whole thing yet but Chris is always worth a listen. I'm hoping he will talk about using implied volatility as described in the video of his posted in the Technical Analysis thread. https://futuresradioshow.com/podcast/286/
