How to Spread Bet on the Euro Stoxx 50

How to Spread Bet on the Euro Stoxx 50?


As with a range of markets, investors can speculate on stock market indices, such as the Euro Stoxx 50, to either rise or fall.

Looking at a site like FinancialSpreads, we can see they have priced the Euro Stoxx 50 March Futures market at 2500 - 2503. Therefore, an investor can spread bet on the Euro Stoxx 50 market:

  Euro Stoxx 50 Spread Trading Example Finishing higher than 2503, or
  Euro Stoxx 50 Trading Example Finishing lower than 2500

On the closing date for this 'March' market, 15-Mar-13.

When making a spread bet on the Euro Stoxx 50 index you trade in x per point. Therefore, should you decide to risk 4 per point and the Euro Stoxx 50 moves 40 points then there would be a difference to your P&L of 160. 4 per point x 40 points = 160.

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


Euro Stoxx 50 Trading Example 1


Now, if we consider the above spread of 2500 - 2503 and assume:
  • You've completed your analysis of the index, and
  • Your analysis suggests that the Euro Stoxx 50 index will close above 2503 by 15-Mar-13
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at 2503 and risk, for the sake of argument, 4 per point.

Therefore, you make a profit of 4 for every point that the Euro Stoxx 50 index rises higher than 2503. However, it also means that you will lose 4 for every point that the Euro Stoxx 50 market decreases below 2503.

Put another way, should you 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 spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

As a result, if, on the expiry date, the Euro Stoxx 50 market closed higher at 2534, then:

Profit = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit = (2534 - 2503) x 4 per point stake
Profit = 31 x 4 per point stake
Profit = 124 profit

Trading stock market indices, whether by spread betting or not, is not simple. With the above, you had bet that the index would go up. However, it might go down.

If the Euro Stoxx 50 decreased and closed lower at 2475, you would end up making a loss and losing money on this market.

Loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Loss = (2475 - 2503) x 4 per point stake
Loss = -28 x 4 per point stake
Loss = -112 loss

Note: Euro Stoxx 50 March Futures spread quoted as of 26-Sep-12.

How to Spread Bet on the EU Stocks 50

How to Spread Bet on the EU Stocks 50 - Example 2


Looking at a spread trading platform like InterTrader, we can see that they are currently pricing the EU Stocks 50 September Futures market at 2495 - 2498. Therefore, an investor could put a spread bet on the EU Stocks 50 market:

  EU Stocks 50 Trading Example Settling above 2498, or
  EU Stocks 50 Spread Betting Example Settling below 2495

On the closing date for this 'September' market, 20-Sep-13.

Whilst spread betting on the EU Stocks 50 index you trade in x per point. So, should you choose to risk 4 per point and the EU Stocks 50 moves 28 points then that would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of 112. 4 per point x 28 points = 112.

If you think about the above spread of 2495 - 2498 and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your analysis of the stock market index, and
  • You feel that the EU Stocks 50 index will close above 2498 by 20-Sep-13
Then you could decide that you want to buy at 2498 and invest, for example, 3 per point.

This means that you win 3 for every point that the EU Stocks 50 index moves higher than 2498. However, you will lose 3 for every point that the EU Stocks 50 market decreases lower than 2498.

Looked at another way, if you were to 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 expiry date, the EU Stocks 50 index settled at 2527, then:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (2527 - 2498) x 3 per point stake
Profit / loss = 29 x 3 per point stake
Profit / loss = 87 profit

Financial spread betting is not straightforward. With the above, you had bet that the index would go up. Of course, the index might decrease.

If the EU Stocks 50 had fallen and settled lower at 2464, then this means you would make a loss.

Profit / loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (2464 - 2498) x 3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -34 x 3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -102 loss

Note: EU Stocks 50 September Futures spread betting market quoted as of 18-Apr-13.
