NASDAQ 100 Spread Betting Example

NASDAQ 100 Spread Betting
If you decide to spread bet on an index like the NASDAQ then, looking at a trading platform like IG, you may see a price of 3971.6 – 3972.0.

Therefore, you can bet on the NASDAQ to go above 3972.0 or go below 3971.6.

When you spread bet, you speculate on every unit the market goes up or down; for the NASDAQ market a unit is 0.1 points of the stock market index’s price movement.

Let’s say, for this instance, you want to trade £2 for every 0.1 points the NASDAQ increases or decreases.


Buying – Speculating on the Market to Rise

If you went long of the NASDAQ at 3972.0 and the stock market index increased then you might see the price move to 3979.1 – 3979.5. If that were to happen, you could close your position at 3979.1.

Your P&L = (final value of the market – opening value of the market) x stake per 0.1 points
Your P&L = (3979.1 – 3972.0) x £2 per 0.1 points stake
Your P&L = 7.1 points x £2 per 0.1 points
Your P&L = £142 profit

However, if the stock market index had fallen to, as an example, 3964.1 – 3964.5, you may want to close your trade to restrict your losses. Therefore, you’d make a sell trade at 3964.1.

You would close your bet with the same £2 per 0.1 points stake:

Your P&L = (final value of the market – opening value of the market) x stake per 0.1 points
Your P&L = (3964.1 – 3972.0) x £2 per 0.1 points stake
Your P&L = -7.9 points x £2 per 0.1 points
Your P&L = -£158 loss


Selling – Speculating on the Market to Fall

One of the many advantages of spread betting is that you can short the markets.

At the start of the example, the market was 3971.6 – 3972.0.

If you short sold the NASDAQ at 3971.6 and the stock market index decreased then the quote might change to 3963.0 – 3963.4. In that case, you might decide to close your position for a profit by buying at 3963.4.

Your P&L = (opening value of the market – final value of the market) x stake per 0.1 points
Your P&L = (3971.6 – 3963.4) x £2 per 0.1 points stake
Your P&L = 8.2 points x £2 per 0.1 points
Your P&L = £164 profit

Financial markets also move up, if the stock market index were to rise up to 3980.3 – 3980.7, you could choose to close your position to prevent further losses. If that happened, you would buy at 3980.7.

So, with the same £2 per 0.1 points stake:

Your P&L = (opening value of the market – final value of the market) x stake per 0.1 points
Your P&L = (3971.6 – 3980.7) x £2 per 0.1 points stake
Your P&L = -9.1 points x £2 per 0.1 points
Your P&L = -£182 loss
