Trading Persimmon – An Example
Let’s say you feel that the stock is a bargain and you think could bounce back towards 2364p. You decide to buy exposure to £10,000 worth of Persimmon using a CFD, at the current price of 2092p. To do this, you need £2,000.
Let’s assume Persimmon recovers back to last week’s highs of 2490p (+13%). Your profit would be £1300, from your initial investment of £2,000.
Conversely, let’s assume you open the above position, and place a stop-loss at 4% from the current price. Persimmon falls 4% and hits your stop-loss. Your loss would be £400.
