How to Spread Bet on the Denmark 20

How to Spread Bet on the Denmark 20?


As with many global financial markets, you can place a spread bet on stock market indices, such as the Denmark 20, to rise or fall.

If you were to look at the IGIndex spread betting website, they are showing the Denmark 20 March Futures market at 462.00 - 463.30. Therefore, you could spread trade on the Denmark 20 index:
  • Finishing higher than 463.30, or
  • Finishing lower than 462.00
On the expiry date for this 'March' market, 18-Mar-11.

When financial spread trading on the Denmark 20 index you trade in x per point. As a result, if you decided to have a stake of 20 per point and the Denmark 20 moves 5.00 points then that would alter your profit/loss by 100. 20 per point x 5.00 points = 100.

For short term trading on stock market indices also see Stock Market Indices Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Denmark 20 Futures Spread Betting Example

Now, if you consider the spread of 462.00 - 463.30 and make the assumptions:
  • You have completed your research, and
  • You think that the Denmark 20 index will close above 463.30 by 18-Mar-11
Then you could decide that you want to buy at 463.30 for a stake of, lets say, 10 per point.

So, you gain 10 for every point that the Denmark 20 index moves higher than 463.30. Of course, it also means that you will make a loss of 10 for every point that the Denmark 20 market decreases lower than 463.30.

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 final price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

Therefore, if, on the closing date, the Denmark 20 market settled higher at 472.60, then:

P&L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = (472.60 - 463.30) x 10 per point stake
P&L = 9.30 x 10 per point stake
P&L = 93.00 profit

Trading stock market indices, whether by spread betting or otherwise, doesn't always work out as you would have liked. In this case, you had bet that the index would rise. However, the index could go down.

If the Denmark 20 decreased, closing at 455.20, you would end up making a loss and losing money on this spread bet.

P&L = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
P&L = (455.20 - 463.30) x 10 per point stake
P&L = -8.10 x 10 per point stake
P&L = -81.00 loss

Note - Denmark 20 March Futures market correct as of 24-Feb-11.




How to Spread Bet on Danish Shares


If you want to speculate on Danish listed companies then you could spread bet on the share price.

Looking at a site like Selftrade Markets, you can see that they have put the Carlsberg Rolling Daily market at 588.7 DKK - 590.3 DKK. Therefore, an investor can spread bet on the Carlsberg share price:

  Carlsberg Trading Example Going higher than 590.3 DKK, or
  Carlsberg Spread Betting Example Going lower than 588.7 DKK

Whilst financial spread betting on Danish equities you trade in x per Krone, where a Krone is 1 Danish Krone. Therefore, if you invest 2 per Krone and the Carlsberg share price moves 30 DKK then that would make a difference to your P&L of 60. 2 per Krone x 30 DKK = 60.

You can also invest in this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. €x per Krone.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that unlike a normal spread betting futures market, there is no closing date. As a result, if your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it just rolls over to the next day.

If your position is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:

  Carlsberg Spread Betting Example Rise - then you will normally be charged a small financing fee, or
  Carlsberg Spread Betting Example Fall - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

You can learn more about Rolling Daily Markets in our article Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


Carlsberg Rolling Daily - Danish Shares Spread Betting Example


Now, if you consider the spread of 588.7 DKK - 590.3 DKK and assume that:
  • You have completed your analysis of the shares, and
  • You think the Carlsberg shares will move higher than 590.3 DKK
Then you might decide to go long of the market at 590.3 DKK for a stake of 5 per Krone.

So, you win 5 for every Krone that the Carlsberg shares increase and go above 590.3 DKK. Nevertheless, you will make a loss of 5 for every Krone that the Carlsberg market falls lower than 590.3 DKK.

Considering this from another angle, if you were to Buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are found by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

As a result, if after a few days the share price rose then you might want to close your spread bet so that you can lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to 611.6 DKK - 613.2 DKK. To settle/close your trade you would sell at 611.6 DKK. As a result, with the same 5 stake you would calculate your profit as:

Your profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (611.6 DKK - 590.3 DKK) x 5 per Krone stake
Your profits (or losses) = 21.3 DKK x 5 per Krone stake
Your profits (or losses) = 106.50 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread trading or otherwise, is not always simple. In this case, you had bet that the share price would increase. However, it can also fall.

If the Carlsberg stock weakened, against your expectations, then you might choose to close your position to limit your losses.

So if the spread pulled back to 571.7 DKK - 573.3 DKK then this means you would settle your position by selling at 571.7 DKK. Therefore, you would make a loss of:

Your profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Your profits (or losses) = (571.7 DKK - 590.3 DKK) x 5 per Krone stake
Your profits (or losses) = -18.6 DKK x 5 per Krone stake
Your profits (or losses) = -93.00 loss

Note: Carlsberg Rolling Daily equities market correct as of 20-Mar-13.
