How to Spread Bet on the Indian Nifty 50

How to Spread Bet on the Indian Nifty 50?


As with many of the world's markets, investors can spread bet on indices, like the Indian Nifty 50, to either rise or fall.

Looking at a spread betting platform like Financial Spreads, we can see they have priced the Indian Nifty 50 April Futures market at 5689 - 5697. As a result, an investor can spread trade on the Indian Nifty 50 index:

  Indian Nifty 50 Spread Trading Example Settling higher than 5697, or
  Indian Nifty 50 Trading Example Settling lower than 5689

On the closing date for this 'April' market, 25-Apr-13.

Whilst placing a spread bet on the Indian Nifty 50 index you trade in £x per point. Therefore, if you invested £4 per point and the Indian Nifty 50 moves 22 points then that would change your bottom line by £88. £4 per point x 22 points = £88.

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


Indian Nifty 50 Trading Example 1


If you consider the spread of 5689 - 5697 and assume that:
  • You have done your analysis of the stock markets, and
  • You feel that the Indian Nifty 50 index will settle above 5697 by 25-Apr-13
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at 5697 and risk, let’s say, £2 per point.

This means that you make a profit of £2 for every point that the Indian Nifty 50 index rises higher than 5697. Having said that, you will make a loss of £2 for every point that the Indian Nifty 50 market decreases below 5697.

Looking at this from another angle, if you were to ‘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 initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

So if, on the closing date, the Indian Nifty 50 market finished at 5775, then:

Profit / loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (5775 - 5697) x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = 78 x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = £156 profit

Speculating on indices, whether by spread trading or otherwise, is not always simple. In the above example, you had bet that the Indian stock market index would go up. Naturally, the index could fall.

If the Indian stock market had fallen and the Indian Nifty 50 closed lower at 5626, then you would end up making a loss and losing on this market.

Profit / loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (5626 - 5697) x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -71 x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -£142 loss

How to Spread Bet on the India 50

How to Spread Bet on the India 50 - Example 2


Looking at a financial spread betting site like Financial Spreads, you can see they are currently showing the India 50 October Futures market at 5686 - 5694. As a result, an investor could spread trade on the India 50 index:

  India 50 Spread Betting Example Settling above 5694, or
  India 50 Spread Trading Example Settling below 5686

On the settlement date for this 'October' market, 25-Oct-12.

Whilst financial spread trading on the India 50 index you trade in £x per point. As a result, if you chose to invest £2 per point and the India 50 moves 35 points then that would be a difference to your bottom line of £70. £2 per point x 35 points = £70.

So, if we think about the spread of 5686 - 5694 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have done your market analysis, and
  • You think that the India 50 index will finish higher than 5694 by 25-Oct-12
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at 5694 for a stake of, for the sake of argument, £3 per point.

So, you win £3 for every point that the India 50 index pushes above 5694. Nevertheless, you will make a loss of £3 for every point that the India 50 market falls below 5694.

Looked at another 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 the stake.

With that in mind, if, on the settlement date, the India 50 market settled at 5740, then:

Profit / loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (5740 - 5694) x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = 46 x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = £138 profit

Financial spread trading on indices won't always go to plan. In the above example, you wanted the Indian stock market index to increase. Of course, it might go down.

If the Indian stock market fell, with the India 50 closing lower at 5643, you would make a loss.

Profit / loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (5643 - 5694) x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -51 x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -£153 loss

Note - India 50 October Futures index market taken as of 27-Sep-12.




How to Spread Bet on Indian Shares


If you are looking to speculate on Indian firms then one option could be spread betting on the share price.

Looking at a spread trading platform like Inter Trader, you can see that they have put the ACC Rolling Daily market at Rs. 1,152.14 - Rs. 1,156.51. As a result, you can spread bet on the ACC shares:

  ACC Spread Trading Example Going higher than Rs. 1,156.51, or
  ACC Trading Example Going lower than Rs. 1,152.14

When spread betting on Indian equities you trade in £x per Rupee, where a Rupee is 1 Indian Rupee. As a result, should you decide to invest £3 per Rupee and the ACC share price moves Rs. 38 then that would change your bottom line by £114. £3 per Rupee x Rs. 38 = £114.

Note that you can also trade this market in Euros or Dollars, e.g. $x per Rupee.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

You should note that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that in contrast with futures markets, there is no settlement date. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it just rolls over to the next day.

If you allow your trade to roll over and are spread betting on the market to:

  ACC Trading Example Increase - then you will be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  ACC Trading Example Decrease - then you'll usually receive a small credit to your account

For a more detailed example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


ACC Rolling Daily - Indian Shares Trading Example


Now, if you take the spread of Rs. 1,152.14 - Rs. 1,156.51 and assume:
  • You've done your analysis of the shares, and
  • Your research suggests the ACC share price looks like it will push above Rs. 1,156.51
Then you might decide that you are going to buy at Rs. 1,156.51 for a stake of, for the sake of argument, £3 per Rupee.

So, you gain £3 for every Rupee that the ACC shares rise higher than Rs. 1,156.51. However, such a bet also means that you will lose £3 for every Rupee that the ACC market decreases below Rs. 1,156.51.

Looking at this from another angle, 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 spread at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

As a result, if after a few days the stock rose then you might consider closing your position to secure your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread, set by the spread trading firm, might move up to Rs. 1,196.99 - Rs. 1,201.36. You would settle/close your trade by selling at Rs. 1,196.99. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake you would make a profit of:

Profit = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit = (Rs. 1,196.99 - Rs. 1,156.51) x £3 per Rupee stake
Profit = Rs. 40.48 x £3 per Rupee stake
Profit = £121.44 profit

Trading equities, whether by spread trading or otherwise, is not easy. In this example, you had bet that the share price would rise. However, it can also decrease.

If the ACC share price decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you might decide to close/settle your position to limit your losses.

Should the market pull back to Rs. 1,121.81 - Rs. 1,126.18 then you would settle your spread bet by selling at Rs. 1,121.81. As a result, your loss would be:

Loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Loss = (Rs. 1,121.81 - Rs. 1,156.51) x £3 per Rupee stake
Loss = -Rs. 34.70 x £3 per Rupee stake
Loss = -£104.10 loss
