Italy 40 Spread Betting Example

Italy 40 Spread Betting
If you’re thinking about spread betting on a stock index such as the Italy 40 then, looking at a firm like IG, at the moment you would see a quote of 19461.0 – 19469.0.

As a result, you can speculate on the Italy 40 to move above 19469.0 or move below 19461.0.

When you spread bet, you trade on every unit the market rises or falls; with the Italy 40 market a unit is 1 point of the index’s price movement.

So let’s say you want to stake £2 for every point the Italy 40 increases or decreases.


Buying – Spread Betting on the Market to Go Up

If you were to buy the Italy 40 at 19469.0 and the index went up then the quote could become 19546.9 – 19554.9. Assuming this was the case, you might decide to close your trade at 19546.9.

Your P&L = (final level of the market – initial level of the market) x stake per point
Your P&L = (19546.9 – 19469.0) x £2 per point stake
Your P&L = 77.9 points x £2 per point
Your P&L = £155.80 profit

Nevertheless, if the index were to fall down to 19397.0 – 19405.0, you could close your trade to limit your losses. Therefore, you would make a sell trade at 19397.0.

Therefore, with the same £2 per point stake:

Your P&L = (final level of the market – initial level of the market) x stake per point
Your P&L = (19397.0 – 19469.0) x £2 per point stake
Your P&L = -72.0 points x £2 per point
Your P&L = -£144.00 loss


Selling – Spread Betting on the Market to Go Down

One of the many advantages of spread betting is that you can short the markets, i.e. bet that the markets will drop.

To start with, the market was priced at 19461.0 – 19469.0.

If you sold the Italy 40 at 19461.0 and the index decreased then the market might be re-priced at 19363.5 – 19371.5. If that were to happen, you could close your trade for a profit by buying at 19371.5.

Your P&L = (initial level of the market – final level of the market) x stake per point
Your P&L = (19461.0 – 19371.5) x £2 per point stake
Your P&L = 89.5 points x £2 per point
Your P&L = £179.00 profit

Nevertheless, if the index had risen to 19535.8 – 19543.8, you could close your bet to prevent further losses. If so, you’d buy the market at 19543.8.

So, with the same £2 per point stake:

Your P&L = (initial level of the market – final level of the market) x stake per point
Your P&L = (19461.0 – 19543.8) x £2 per point stake
Your P&L = -82.8 points x £2 per point
Your P&L = -£165.60 loss
