How to Spread Bet on the Poland 20?
As with a wide variety of financial markets, you are able to place a spread bet on indices, like the Poland 20, to go up or down.
If an investor was to look at the IGIndex website, they are currently valuing the Poland 20 March Futures market at 2665 - 2676. This means an investor can spread trade on the Poland 20 market:
On the settlement date for this 'March' market, 18-Mar-11.
- Settling above 2676, or
- Settling below 2665
When making a spread bet on the Poland 20 index you trade in £x per point. As a result, if you decided to have a stake of £4 per point and the Poland 20 moves 5 points then that would be a difference to your bottom line of £20. £4 per point x 5 points = £20.

Poland 20 Futures Spread Betting Example
Now, if we think about the spread of 2665 - 2676 and make the assumptions:
Then you could decide that you want to buy a spread bet at 2676 for a stake of, for the sake of argument, £2 per point.
- You have analysed the indices markets, and
- You think that the Poland 20 index will finish higher than 2676 by 18-Mar-11
With such a bet you win £2 for every point that the Poland 20 index pushes above 2676. However, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of £2 for every point that the Poland 20 market falls lower than 2676.
Put another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.
So if, on the closing date, the Poland 20 index settled at 2730, then:
Profit = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = (2730 - 2676) x £2 per point stake
Profit = 54 x £2 per point stake
Profit = £108.00 profit
Trading indices, by spread betting or otherwise, is not simple. In this case, you wanted the index to rise. Nevertheless, it can also decrease.
If the Warsaw Stock Exchange dropped and the Poland 20 decreased to close at 2618, then you would end up making a loss and losing money on this spread bet.
Loss = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = (2618 - 2676) x £2 per point stake
Loss = -58 x £2 per point stake
Loss = -£116.00 loss
Note - Poland 20 March Futures spread correct as of 24-Feb-11.
