How to Spread Bet on the Sweden 30

How to Spread Bet on the Sweden 30?


As with many financial markets, an investor can spread bet on stock market indices, like the Sweden 30, to either rise or fall.

Looking at a spread betting website like IGIndex, we can see that they are currently offering the Sweden 30 October Futures market at 1062.40 - 1063.10. As a result, an investor can spread bet on the Sweden 30 market:

  Sweden 30 Trading Example Finishing higher than 1063.10, or
  Sweden 30 Spread Betting Example Finishing lower than 1062.40

On the closing date for this 'October' market, 19-Oct-12.

Whilst spread betting on the Sweden 30 index you trade in x per point. As a result, if you decide to invest 5 per point and the Sweden 30 moves 30 points then that would be a difference to your bottom line of 150. 5 per point x 30 points = 150.

For short term trading on stock market indices also see Stock Market Indices Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


Sweden 30 Futures - Index Spread Betting Example


If we consider the spread of 1062.40 - 1063.10 and assume:
  • You have done your analysis of the stock markets, and
  • You think that the Sweden 30 index will settle higher than 1063.10 by 19-Oct-12
Then you may decide that you want to go long of the market at 1063.10 for a stake of, lets say, 10 per point.

This means that you make a profit of 10 for every point that the Sweden 30 index increases above 1063.10. Of course, you will make a loss of 10 for every point that the Sweden 30 market falls below 1063.10.

Looking at this from another angle, if you buy a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

Therefore, if, on the expiry date, the Sweden 30 market settled higher at 1077.50, then:

P&L = (Settlement Value - Opening Value) x stake
P&L = (1077.50 - 1063.10) x 10 per point stake
P&L = 14.40 x 10 per point stake
P&L = 144.00 profit

Trading stock market indices, whether by spread trading or otherwise, doesn't always go to plan. In this example, you wanted the Swedish stock market index to go up. Nevertheless, the index can also fall.

If the Swedish stock market had fallen, with the Sweden 30 closing lower at 1050.30, then you would end up making a loss.

P&L = (Settlement Value - Opening Value) x stake
P&L = (1050.30 - 1063.10) x 10 per point stake
P&L = -12.80 x 10 per point stake
P&L = -128.00 loss

Note - Sweden 30 October Futures spread quoted as of 10-Oct-11.




How to Spread Bet on Swedish Shares


If an investor wants to speculate on Swedish firms like Alfa Laval then one solution is to spread trade on the Alfa Laval share price.

Looking at a website like InterTrader, we can see they are currently showing the Alfa Laval Rolling Daily market at 147.3 SEK - 147.6 SEK. This means you can put a spread bet on the Alfa Laval share price:

  Alfa Laval Trading Example Rising above 147.6 SEK, or
  Alfa Laval Spread Trading Example Falling below 147.3 SEK

When spread trading on Swedish equities you trade in x per Krona, where a Krona is 1 Swedish Krona. Therefore, if you choose to invest 2 per Krona and the Alfa Laval shares move 38 SEK then that would alter your P&L by 76. 2 per Krona x 38 SEK = 76.

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

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

One thing to note is that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that there is no closing date for this market. If a trade is still open when the markets close at the end of the day, it just rolls over into the next session.

If you do let your bet roll over into the next day and are spread betting on the market to:

  Alfa Laval Spread Trading Example Increase - then you are normally charged a small financing fee, or
  Alfa Laval Spread Trading Example Decrease - then you'll normally receive a small credit to your account

To find out more about Rolling Daily Markets read our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


Alfa Laval Rolling Daily - Swedish Equities Spread Trading Example


So, if we continue with the spread of 147.3 SEK - 147.6 SEK and make the assumptions that:
  • You have done your stock market analysis, and
  • Your research leads you to think the Alfa Laval share price is likely to move higher than 147.6 SEK
Then you might choose to buy a spread bet at 147.6 SEK for a stake of 20 per Krona.

So, you gain 20 for every Krona that the Alfa Laval shares push above 147.6 SEK. Nevertheless, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of 20 for every Krona that the Alfa Laval market goes below 147.6 SEK.

Put another way, should you Buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is worked out 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 the stake.

With this in mind, if after a few hours the stock moved higher then you could consider closing your trade and therefore guarantee your profits. Therefore, if the market moved up then the spread, set by the spread betting company, could change to 154.2 SEK - 154.5 SEK. To close your trade you would sell at 154.2 SEK. Accordingly, with the same 20 stake this trade would make you a profit of:

Your P&L = (Closing Level - Initial Level) x stake
Your P&L = (154.2 SEK - 147.6 SEK) x 20 per Krona stake
Your P&L = 6.6 SEK x 20 per Krona stake
Your P&L = 132.00 profit

Trading shares, by spread betting or otherwise, is not easy. In this example, you wanted the share price to increase. Of course, it could go down.

If the Alfa Laval shares weakened, against your expectations, then you could choose to close your spread bet to stop any further losses.

Should the spread drop to 141.9 SEK - 142.2 SEK then this means you would settle your position by selling at 141.9 SEK. So your loss would be calculated as:

Your P&L = (Closing Level - Initial Level) x stake
Your P&L = (141.9 SEK - 147.6 SEK) x 20 per Krona stake
Your P&L = -5.7 SEK x 20 per Krona stake
Your P&L = -114.00 loss

Note: Alfa Laval Rolling Daily market accurate as of 20-Mar-13.
