Trading Unilever – An Example
Let’s say you like the range, you think it’s heading back towards 3943p again. You decide to sell exposure to £10,000 worth of Unilever using a CFD, at the current price of 4225p. To do this, you need £2,000.
Let’s assume Unilever fall back to 3943p (-6.6%). Your profit would be £660, from your initial investment of £2,000.
Conversely, let’s assume you open the above position, and place a stop-loss at 3% from the current price. Unilever rises 3% and hits your stop-loss. Your loss would be £300.
