## Example 1 – Share Dealing

**We wish to take a Long position in Barclays in anticipation of a rise in price and wish to expose ourselves to 1000 Shares:**

**Notes:**

- The interest rate on the CFD is calculated as follows:

Value of position = 1000 Shares x £4.43 (the Mid price) = £4430

Interest @ 5.5% p.a. of the total position = £4430 x 5.5% = £243.65 p.a.

£243.65 divided by 365 = £0.667.

(Please do check exactly how the Interest charge is computed with the providers – there will be differences). - The wider spread and higher price on the Financial Spreadbet reflects that it is a quarterly contract and takes account of Interest and Dividends.
- The profit is calculated by valuing the positions at the prevailing potential closing price of the position i.e. the Bid Price – Opening Offer price x Size of Exposure.
- Interest will accrue on the CFD Daily until the position is closed.
- No interest would have accrued had the position not been held overnight.

**We wish to take a Short position on the Dow Jones Index in anticipation of a fall in price:**

**Notes:**

- The Notional Trading Requirement on the Financial Spreadbet is usually at a fixed level e.g. 400 – you would multiply this number by your stake to calculate your Margin Requirement e.g. 400 x £10 = £4000.

Value of position = £10 Per point x 8486.5 (the latest Mid price) = £84,865

Interest @ 1.5 % p.a. of the total position = £84865 x 1.5% = £1272.97 p.a.

£1272.97 divided by 365 = £3.487.
