How to Spread Bet on the Brazil Index

How to Spread Bet on the Brazil Index?

As with a wide variety of global financial markets, you are able to spread bet on stock market indices, such as the Brazil Index, to either increase or decrease.

Looking at a financial spread betting website like Capitalspreads, you can see that they are showing the Brazil Index October Futures market at 60168 - 60228. Therefore, an investor could put a spread bet on the Brazil Index:

  Brazil Index Trading Example Finishing higher than 60228, or
  Brazil Index Spread Betting Example Finishing lower than 60168

On the closing date for this 'October' market, 17-Oct-12.

Whilst financial spread betting on the Brazil Index you trade in x per point. So, if you choose to have a stake of 5 per point and the Brazil Index moves 34 points then that would change your profit/loss by 170. 5 per point x 34 points = 170.

Brazil Index Futures - Indices Spread Betting Example

Now, if you consider the spread of 60168 - 60228 and assume:
  • You have completed your market research, and
  • You think that the Brazil Index will finish above 60228 by 17-Oct-12
Then you may decide to buy a spread bet at 60228 for a stake of 2 per point.

So, you gain 2 for every point that the Brazil Index pushes higher than 60228. However, it also means that you will make a loss of 2 for every point that the Brazil Index market goes lower than 60228.

Looked at another way, if you were to buy a spread bet then your P&L is worked out by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

Subsequently, if, on the closing date, the Brazil Index finished higher at 60324, then:

Profit / loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (60324 - 60228) x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = 96 x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = 192 profit

Speculating on indices, by spread betting or otherwise, won't always go to plan. In the above example, you wanted the Brazilian stock market index to increase. Nevertheless, it might go down.

If the Brazilian stock market decreased and the Brazil index closed lower at 60139, then you would end up making a loss and losing on this market.

Profit / loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (60139 - 60228) x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -89 x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -178 loss

Note - Brazil Index October Futures spread taken as of 26-Sep-12.
