How to Spread Bet on the Singapore Blue Chip

How to Spread Bet on the Singapore Blue Chip?


As with a wide range of markets, it is possible to spread bet on stock market indices, such as the Singapore Blue Chip Index, to rise or fall.

Looking at a financial spread betting site like IGIndex, we can see they have priced the Singapore Blue Chip Index October Futures market at 346.70 - 347.10. This means you can spread bet on the Singapore Blue Chip Index:

  Singapore Blue Chip Index Spread Betting Example Closing above 347.10, or
  Singapore Blue Chip Index Trading Example Closing below 346.70

On the settlement date for this 'October' market, 30-Oct-12.

When spread betting on the Singapore Blue Chip Index you trade in x per point. Therefore, if you chose to invest 3 per point and the Singapore Blue Chip Index moves 32 points then that would change your P&L by 96. 3 per point x 32 points = 96.

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


Singapore Blue Chip Index Futures - Index Trading Example


Now, if we think about the above spread of 346.70 - 347.10 and assume:
  • You have completed your research, and
  • You analysis leads you to feel that the Singapore Blue Chip Index will settle above 347.10 by 30-Oct-12
Then you might decide to buy at 347.10 and risk, for example, 15 per point.

Therefore, you make a profit of 15 for every point that the Singapore Blue Chip Index pushes higher than 347.10. Conversely, however, you will make a loss of 15 for every point that the Singapore Blue Chip Index market moves below 347.10.

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

With that in mind, if, on the closing date, the Singapore Blue Chip Index settled higher at 354.00, then:

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (354.00 - 347.10) x 15 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = 6.90 x 15 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = 103.50 profit

Trading stock market indices can go against you. In this case, you wanted the Singapore stock market index to increase. Nevertheless, it can also go down.

If the Singapore stock market had weakened, with the Singapore Blue Chip Index closing lower at 339.30, then you would end up making a loss and losing on this trade.

Profits (or losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (339.30 - 347.10) x 15 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -7.80 x 15 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -117.00 loss

Note: Singapore Blue Chip Index October Futures spread betting market quoted as of 10-Oct-11.


Where Can I Find Free Live Singapore Blue Chip Prices?


If you want to access quick live market information then you could do worse than opening an account with a spread betting company like IG Index.

Also, you don't have to trade with them, if you just open an account (which is free to do) then their data is free. The catch? You'll get the odd email or letter from them. In the example below you can also see that their free charts are also useful.
