How to Spread Bet on AIG

How to Spread Bet on AIG?

Should you want to speculate on US companies like AIG then one option could be to spread bet on the AIG share price.

Looking at a spread trading website like FinancialSpreads, you can see that they have put the AIG Rolling Daily market at $38.68 - $38.74. Therefore, you could spread bet on the AIG shares:

  AIG Trading Example Increasing higher than $38.74, or
  AIG Spread Betting Example Decreasing lower than $38.68

When spread betting on US equities you trade in £x per cent. So, if you choose to risk £3 per cent and the AIG shares move $0.25 then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of £75. £3 per cent x $0.25 = £75.

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

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

You should note that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market', therefore unlike a normal futures market, there is no settlement date. If your position is still open at the end of the day, it simply keeps rolling over into the next trading session.

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

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

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

AIG Rolling Daily - US Equities Spread Betting Example

If we think about the above spread of $38.68 - $38.74 and assume that:
  • You've done your equities analysis, and
  • Your research leads you to think the AIG shares are likely to go higher than $38.74
Then you could choose to buy a spread bet at $38.74 for a stake of, let’s say, £4 per cent.

This means that you make a profit of £4 for every cent that the AIG shares increase and go above $38.74. Nevertheless, you will make a loss of £4 for every cent that the AIG market decreases below $38.74.

Looking at this from another angle, if you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are worked out by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

If after a few trading sessions the share price rose then you might consider closing your position in order to lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread, set by the spread trading company, might change to $39.07 - $39.13. In order to close your trade you would sell at $39.07. Therefore, with the same £4 stake this trade would make you a profit of:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = ($39.07 - $38.74) x £4 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = $0.33 x £4 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = 33¢ x £4 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = £132 profit

Spread betting is not straightforward. In the above example, you wanted the share price to rise. Nevertheless, it might fall.

If the AIG shares had started to drop then you could close your spread bet in order to restrict your losses.

Should the market fall back to $38.45 - $38.51 you would sell back your position at $38.45. Accordingly, your loss would be:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profits (or losses) = ($38.45 - $38.74) x £4 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -$0.29 x £4 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -29¢ x £4 per cent stake
Profits (or losses) = -£116 loss

Note: AIG Rolling Daily spread taken as of 06-Feb-13.
