How to Spread Bet on the Austria 20

How to Spread Bet on the Austria 20?


As with many markets, it is possible to spread bet on indices, such as the Austria 20, to either increase or decrease.

Looking at the IGIndex spread trading website, they are currently valuing the Austria 20 March Futures market at 2853.00 - 2874.00. Therefore, an investor can spread trade on the Austria 20 index:
  • Closing above 2874.00, or
  • Closing below 2853.00
On the settlement date for this 'March' market, 18-Mar-11.

Whilst making a spread bet on the Austria 20 index you trade in x per point. So, if you chose to have a stake of 10 per point and the Austria 20 moves 5.00 points then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of 50. 10 per point x 5.00 points = 50.

Austria 20 Futures Spread Trading Example

So, if you think about the above spread of 2853.00 - 2874.00 and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your analysis of the markets, and
  • It leads you to feel that the Austria 20 index will finish above 2874.00 by 18-Mar-11
Then you might buy a spread bet at 2874.00 for a stake of, for the sake of argument, 5 per point.

So, you gain 5 for every point that the Austria 20 index moves higher than 2874.00. On the other hand, you will lose 5 for every point that the Austria 20 market falls below 2874.00.

Looked at another way, if you were to buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

Subsequently, if, on the settlement date, the Austria 20 closed at 2902.70, then:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (2902.70 - 2874.00) x 5 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = 28.70 x 5 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = 143.50 profit

Trading indices, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not always simple. With this example, you wanted the index to increase. However, the index could decrease.

If the Austria 20 had fallen and settled at 2842.40, then this means you would end up losing this spread bet.

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (2842.40 - 2874.00) x 5 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -31.60 x 5 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -158.00 loss

Note: Austria 20 March Futures spread accurate as of 24-Feb-11.
