How to Spread Bet on the AEX Index

How to Spread Bet on the AEX Index?


As with many markets, investors can speculate on stock market indices, such as the AEX Index, to either rise or fall.

Logging onto CapitalSpreads, we can see that they have put the AEX Index October Futures market at 329.1 - 330.1. As a result, an investor could spread bet on the AEX Index market:

  AEX Index Spread Betting Example Closing higher than 330.1, or
  AEX Index Trading Example Closing lower than 329.1

On the closing date for this 'October' market, 19-Oct-12.

When financial spread trading on the AEX Index you trade in x per 0.1 points. Therefore, should you decide to risk 3 per 0.1 points and the AEX Index moves 2.7 points then that would be a difference to your P&L of 81. 3 per 0.1 points x 2.7 points = 81.

For short term trading on indices also see Indices Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


AEX Index Trading Example 1


If you consider the above spread of 329.1 - 330.1 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have done your market research, and
  • Your analysis suggests that the AEX Index will close above 330.1 by 19-Oct-12
Then you might decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at 330.1 for a stake of, for example, 2 per 0.1 points.

This means that you win 2 for every 0.1 points that the AEX Index rises higher than 330.1. On the other hand, such a bet also means you will make a loss of 2 for every 0.1 points that the AEX Index market decreases lower than 330.1.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, if you Buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

So if, on the settlement date the AEX Index market settled at 338.5, then:

P&L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = (338.5 - 330.1) x 2 per 0.1 points stake
P&L = 8.4 x 2 per 0.1 points stake
P&L = 168 profit

Trading indices, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not easy. With the above, you wanted the index to rise. However, the index can also go down.

If the AEX Index had fallen, closing lower at 322.5, then this means you would end up making a loss on this spread bet.

P&L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = (322.5 - 330.1) x 2 per 0.1 points stake
P&L = -7.6 x 2 per 0.1 points stake
P&L = -152 loss

Note - AEX Index October Futures spread correct as of 26-Sep-12.

How to Spread Bet on the Dutch 25

How to Spread Bet on the Dutch 25 - Example 2


Logging into Financial Spreads, you can see that they are valuing the Dutch 25 October Futures market at 329.0 - 330.0. As a result, you can spread bet on the Dutch 25 index:

  Dutch 25 Spread Trading Example Finishing higher than 330.0, or
  Dutch 25 Spread Betting Example Finishing lower than 329.0

On the expiry date for this 'October' market, 19-Oct-12.

Whilst spread trading on the Dutch 25 index you trade in x per 0.1 points. Therefore, if you invest 2 per 0.1 points and the Dutch 25 moves 2.8 points then that would change your P&L by 56. 2 per 0.1 points x 2.8 points = 56.

Now, if you take the above spread of 329.0 - 330.0 and make the assumptions:
  • You've completed your market research, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think the Dutch 25 index will close higher than 330.0 by 19-Oct-12
Then you might buy a spread bet at 330.0 and invest, for example, 2 per 0.1 points.

Therefore, you win 2 for every 0.1 points that the Dutch 25 index moves above 330.0. Conversely, however, you will make a loss of 2 for every 0.1 points that the Dutch 25 market falls below 330.0.

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

With that in mind, if, on the settlement date, the Dutch 25 market settled at 336.6, then:

Profit = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = (336.6 - 330.0) x 2 per 0.1 points stake
Profit = 6.6 x 2 per 0.1 points stake
Profit = 132 profit

Trading stock market indices, whether by spread betting or not, is not always simple. In the above example, you had bet that the index would go up. Nevertheless, the index can also fall.

If the Dutch 25 had fallen, settling lower at 324.2, then you would end up making a loss and losing on this spread bet.

Loss = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = (324.2 - 330.0) x 2 per 0.1 points stake
Loss = -5.8 x 2 per 0.1 points stake
Loss = -116 loss

Note - Dutch 25 October Futures spread betting market taken as of 27-Sep-12.

How to Spread Bet on Dutch Shares


If you want to spread bet on Dutch shares like ING then here is how you could do it.

Looking at a site like Inter Trader, you can see they are currently pricing the ING Rolling Daily market at €7.27 - €7.30. This means that an investor could put a spread bet on the ING shares:

  ING Spread Trading Example Rising higher than €7.30, or
  ING Trading Example Falling lower than €7.27

When financial spread trading on Dutch shares you trade in x per cent. As a result, if you invested 4 per cent and the ING share price moves €0.37 then that would alter your P&L by 148. 4 per cent x €0.37 = 148.

Note that you are also able to invest in this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. €x per cent.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no settlement date. You do not have to close your trade, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it simply rolls over to the next trading day.

If your spread bet does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  ING Trading Example Increase - then you would normally pay a small financing fee, or
  ING Trading Example Decrease - then you will usually receive a small credit to your account

You can find more on Rolling Daily Markets, as well as a fully worked example, in our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


ING Rolling Daily - Dutch Equities Trading Example


So, if we continue with the above spread of €7.27 - €7.30 and make the assumptions:
  • You've completed your analysis of the sector, and
  • Your analysis leads you to feel that the ING share price is likely to increase and move above €7.30
Then you might decide that you are going to buy a spread bet at €7.30 for a stake of 5 per cent.

With such a bet you make a profit of 5 for every cent that the ING shares increase and go higher than €7.30. Nevertheless, you will lose 5 for every cent that the ING market falls below €7.30.

Looked at another way, if you were to buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

With this in mind, if after a few trading sessions the shares started to rise you might decide to close your trade to secure your profit. So if the market increased then the spread might move to €7.54 - €7.57. You would close your trade by selling at €7.54. As a result, with the same 5 stake your profit would come to:

Profit / loss = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (€7.54 - €7.30) x 5 per cent stake
Profit / loss = €0.24 x 5 per cent stake
Profit / loss = 24c x 5 per cent stake
Profit / loss = 120 profit

Financial spread trading can go against you. In this example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Of course, the share price can also go down.

If the ING share price weakened, against your expectations, then you might choose to close your spread bet in order to restrict your losses.

So if the market dropped to €7.03 - €7.06 you would close your trade by selling at €7.03. If so, that would mean you would lose:

Profit / loss = (Closing Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (€7.03 - €7.30) x 5 per cent stake
Profit / loss = -€0.27 x 5 per cent stake
Profit / loss = -27c x 5 per cent stake
Profit / loss = -135 loss

Note - ING Rolling Daily spread correct as of 23-Jan-13.
