Trading Sainsbury – An Example
Let’s say you feel that the stock is a bargain and you think could bounce back towards 236p. You decide to buy exposure to £10,000 worth of Sainsbury using a CFD, at the current price of 195.6p. To do this, you need £2,000.
Let’s assume Sainsbury recovers back to 236p (+20%). Your profit would be £2000, from your initial investment of £2,000.
Conversely, let’s assume you open the above position, and place a stop-loss at 5% from the current price. Sainsbury falls 5% and hits your stop-loss. Your loss would be £500.
