Buying UBS: detailed

  CFD
Underlying market/value UBS AG 16.83/16.86
Our price UBS
16.8300/16.8600
Trade

Buy at 16.8600

Trade size 1000 shares
Margin required

CHF 1686 
Number of shares x price x margin rate (10%)

What happens next? By 4.35 (London time) the market has risen to CHF18.81: this is the price our funding is calculated at. 
Funding

Overnight funding charge: CHF 1.56
(One-month Libor + 2.5%) x number of shares x price)/360
(2.99% x 1000 x 18.8100)/360

Underlying market

UBS rises steadily the next day and we quote 18.8800/18.8900

Close

Sell at 18.8800

Gross profit

CHF 2020
18.8800 - 16.8600 = CHF 2.02
CHF 2.02 x 1000 shares = CHF 2020

Costs

Commission CHF35.74
Value of position x 0.10% (Minimum CHF10)
(1000 x 16.86) x 0.10% = CHF16.86
(1000 x 18.88) x 0.10% = CHF 18.88
Funding: CHF 1.56 

Net profit

CHF 1982.70 subject to tax

What if...

the market fell and you sold at 15.44 instead

15.44-16.86 = -CHF 1.42

(-CHF 1.42 x 1000 shares + CHF1.56 + CHF 32.30)
Net loss = CHF 1453.86

What is share trading?

Shares are one of the most popular and well-known financial instruments. When you buy a share, you’re buying a small part - or ‘unit of ownership’ - in a company. So if you’re considering trading shares, it’s extremely important to research both the company and the industry that it’s in.

An added benefit of trading shares is receiving dividends. They represent your share of the company’s profits and are usually paid out twice a year. The amount you receive depends on how much the management distributes to shareholders, and how much it reinvests back into the business.

How is funding on shares calculated?

Size for CFDs means number of shares.

Closing price means underlying market price at 11 pm (CET) for UK, Swiss, and European shares and 2 am (CET) for US and Canadian shares.

If your trade is in CHF

Size × closing price × LIBOR +/- 2.5% ÷ 360

Based on LIBOR one month overnight rate

If your trade is in USD

Size × closing price × US LIBOR +/–2.5% ÷ 360   

If your trade is in EUR

Size × closing price × EURIBOR +/–2.5% ÷ 360   

The formula uses a 365-day divisor for UK, Singapore and South African shares, and a 360-day divisor for shares in other markets.
