How to Spread Bet on the Norway 25

How to Spread Bet on the Norway 25?


As with a lot of markets, an investor can place a spread bet on indices, such as the Norway 25, to either rise or fall.

Looking at the IGIndex trading site, they are currently giving the Norway 25 March Futures market at 400.00 - 401.00. As a result, an investor can spread trade on the Norway 25 index:
  • Closing above 401.00, or
  • Closing below 400.00
On the closing date for this 'March' market, 17-Mar-11.

When spread trading on the Norway 25 index you trade in x per point. So, if you chose to risk 20 per point and the Norway 25 moves 5.00 points then that would be a difference to your P&L of 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.

Norway 25 Futures Spread Betting Example

So, if you consider the above spread of 400.00 - 401.00 and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your market analysis, and
  • You feel that the Norway 25 index will finish above 401.00 by 17-Mar-11
Then you could buy a spread bet at 401.00 for a stake of 15 per point.

With such a bet you win 15 for every point that the Norway 25 index rises higher than 401.00. Having said that, you will make a loss of 15 for every point that the Norway 25 market decreases lower than 401.00.

Looked at another way, if you Buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated 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.

Therefore, if, on the closing date, the Norway 25 finished at 407.00, then:

P&L = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
P&L = (407.00 - 401.00) x 15 per point stake
P&L = 6.00 x 15 per point stake
P&L = 90.00 profit

Speculating on stock market indices, by spread betting or otherwise, may not go to plan. With this example, you had bet that the index would go up. Of course, it could decrease.

If the Norway 25 fell, settling lower at 396.00, then you would end up making a loss on this market.

P&L = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
P&L = (396.00 - 401.00) x 15 per point stake
P&L = -5.00 x 15 per point stake
P&L = -75.00 loss

How to Spread Bet on Norwegian Shares


If an investor wants to take a position on Norwegian firms then one possibility could be to place a spread bet on the share price.

Logging onto capital spreads, we can see they are currently offering the Aker Solutions Rolling Daily market at 110.3 NOK - 110.7 NOK. This means an investor could put a spread bet on the Aker Solutions share price:

  Aker Solutions Spread Trading Example Moving above 110.7 NOK, or
  Aker Solutions Spread Betting Example Moving below 110.3 NOK

When spread betting on Norwegian shares you trade in x per Krone, where a Krone is 1 Norwegian Krone. Therefore, if you chose to invest 3 per Krone and the Aker Solutions share price moves 23 NOK then that would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of 69. 3 per Krone x 23 NOK = 69.

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

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

It is important to note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so in contrast with futures markets, there is no closing date. If your position is still open at the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

If a bet is rolled over and you are spread betting on the market to:

  Aker Solutions Spread Betting Example Rise - then you are charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Aker Solutions Spread Betting Example Fall - then a small payment will usually be credited to your account

For a more detailed example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


Aker Solutions Rolling Daily - Norwegian Equities Spread Betting Example


Now, if you consider the spread of 110.3 NOK - 110.7 NOK and make the assumptions:
  • You have done your stock market research, and
  • You feel that the Aker Solutions shares are likely to push higher than 110.7 NOK
Then you may choose to buy at 110.7 NOK for a stake of, lets say, 20 per Krone.

So, you win 20 for every Krone that the Aker Solutions shares increase and go above 110.7 NOK. On the other hand, it also means you will lose 20 for every Krone that the Aker Solutions market decreases below 110.7 NOK.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, should you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

As a result, if the stock started to increase then you might want to close your position in order to guarantee your profit. As an example, if the market increased then the spread, determined by the spread betting firm, could change to 115.5 NOK - 115.9 NOK. To close your position you would sell at 115.5 NOK. As a result, with the same 20 stake you would calculate your profit as:

Profits (or losses) = (Final Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (115.5 NOK - 110.7 NOK) x 20 per Krone stake
Profits (or losses) = 4.8 NOK x 20 per Krone stake
Profits (or losses) = 96.00 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread trading or otherwise, is not always straightforward. In this case, you wanted the share price to increase. Of course, the share price can also fall.

If the Aker Solutions shares decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could choose to close your trade to limit your losses.

If the market fell to 104.8 NOK - 105.2 NOK then this means you would close your position by selling at 104.8 NOK. Accordingly, your loss would be:

Profits (or losses) = (Final Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (104.8 NOK - 110.7 NOK) x 20 per Krone stake
Profits (or losses) = -5.9 NOK x 20 per Krone stake
Profits (or losses) = -118.00 loss

Note: Aker Solutions Rolling Daily spread betting price quoted as of 20-Mar-13.
