A few days later  ISU.AX on Australia Stock Exchange has moved up 4% to a new price of 208. iSelect Ltd has moved up 8 points (new price -old price)

Trade size £50.00 a point
Profit or loss  £400.00

Profit and loss calculation

The profit is calculated = £50.00 (your stake)  x  + 8 points (closing price – opening price)

Profit
£50.00 (your stake)  x  + 8 = + £400.00

The loss – If instead iSelect Ltd (ISU.AX) moved down 4% to a new price of 192, the loss would be calculated for ISU.AX on a downmovement of – 8 points – old price – new price. The loss would have been

Loss
£50.00 (your stake)  x  – 8 = – £400.00

As you can see from the example above, spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given the deposit required is only a fraction of the trade value (25% margin required on IG). In the next section I will go over briefly the ful potential risk of the trade we exampled above in iSelect Limited ISU.AX on Australia Stock Exchange (AUD).




Other useful information about your trade

  • Risk

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (25%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

We traded iSelect Ltd at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of ISU.AX on Australia Stock Exchange is 2. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 2) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£10,000.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£50.00 (your stake) x 2 = £10,000.00(max potential risk)

therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

  • Reward

The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 25% on ISU.AX .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £2,500.00 (25% of the full value £10,000.00 ) and gained £400.00 . The reward made was 16% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

Reward Spread betting
£400.00 (profit)  /  £2,500.00(deposit)   = 16% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (iSelect Ltd (ISU.AX)) not leveraged on the Australia Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 4% (£400.00 / £10,000.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£400.00 profit  /  £10,000.00 (cost to buy ISU.AX ) = 4% return
  • Slippage

Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

Another factor to consider is if you hold your trade in iSelect Ltd over night, when the Australia Stock Exchange is closed( Trading hours are 10:00 AM – 04:00 PM(+10 Hours GMT) in Australia ), and there is majour news that will affect the price in iSelect Limited, you can suffer slippage. Your stoploss or take profit will trade at the first available price when the market opens.

  • Guaranteed Stop Loss

*Be aware that a short position depends if the product can be borrowed, as you need to initially borrow in order to go short.



Spread bet example

There has been recent positive news for ISHARES S&P ASIA 50 INDEX FUND listed on ASX in AUD and you feel IAA.AX will continue rising. You decide to trade a long position (bet the price to rise) on IG.group.

March 7 – Open long trade

 

Instrument Stock Exchange of Singapore
Price 7 March 2017 67 AUD**
Trade Status Open long trade
Trade size £50.00 a point ***
Margin required 10%
Margin deposited  £332.60

**Note prices are quoted in 1/100 as you are spread betting per point movement.
*** in these examples we are spread betting in Sterling(GBP). The calculations, and profit/loss will be in GBP. You can trade in the assets local currency or your platform’s currency

A few days later  IAA.AX on Australia Stock Exchange has moved up 8% to a new price of 72. ISHARES S&P ASIA 50 INDEX FUND has moved up 5 points (new price -old price)

March 12 – Close long trade

 

Price – 12 March 2017 72
Trade Status Close trade
Percent move 5 points
Percent in points 5 points
Trade size £50.00 a point
Profit or loss  £266.08

Profit and loss calculation

The profit is calculated = £50.00 (your stake)  x  + 5 points (closing price – opening price)

Profit
£50.00 (your stake)  x  + 5 = + £266.08

The loss – If instead ISHARES S&P ASIA 50 INDEX FUND (IAA.AX) moved down 8% to a new price of 61.2, the loss would be calculated for IAA.AX on a downmovement of – 5 points – old price – new price. The loss would have been

Loss
£50.00 (your stake)  x  – 5 = – £266.08

As you can see from the example above, spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given the deposit required is only a fraction of the trade value (10% margin required on IG). In the next section I will go over briefly the ful potential risk of the trade we exampled above in iShares Asia 50 (AU) IAA.AX on Australia Stock Exchange (AUD).




Other useful information about your trade

  • Risk

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (10%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

We traded ISHARES S&P ASIA 50 INDEX FUND at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of IAA.AX on Australia Stock Exchange is 66.52. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 66.52) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£3,326.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£50.00 (your stake) x 66.52 = £3,326.00(max potential risk)

therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

  • Reward

The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 10% on IAA.AX .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £332.60 (10% of the full value £3,326.00 ) and gained £266.08 . The reward made was 80% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

Reward Spread betting
£266.08 (profit)  /  £332.60(deposit)   = 80% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (ISHARES S&P ASIA 50 INDEX FUND (IAA.AX)) not leveraged on the Australia Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 8% (£266.08 / £3,326.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£266.08 profit  /  £3,326.00 (cost to buy IAA.AX ) = 8% return
  • Slippage

Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

Another factor to consider is if you hold your trade in ISHARES S&P ASIA 50 INDEX FUND over night, when the Australia Stock Exchange is closed( Trading hours are 10:00 AM – 04:00 PM(+10 Hours GMT) in Australia ), and there is majour news that will affect the price in iShares Asia 50 (AU), you can suffer slippage. Your stoploss or take profit will trade at the first available price when the market opens.

  • Guaranteed Stop Loss

To avoid slippage IG.group guarantees your stoploss level when you opt to use a guaranteed stoploss. The cost of the stoploss on xxx that is a small premium of 0.30% calculated on the value of your trade. It is a little peice of mind offered by  IG.group, like a little insurance.

  • Currency

When you open a spread bet you will be able to trade both in the instruments currency , in this case AUD, Australian Dollar, or in the currency of your IG trading account – that could be GBP, USD, EUR etc. Whatever the currency you trade in, will be the currency of your profits. At the end of the trade, you can opt to change the currency immediately or at the end of the day, to you chosen account currency.

As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (20%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

We traded Isentia Group Ltd at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of ISD.AX on Australia Stock Exchange is 1.46. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 1.46) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£7,300.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

£50.00 (your stake) x 1.46 = £7,300.00(max potential risk)

therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

  • Reward

The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 20% on ISD.AX .

For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £1,460.00 (20% of the full value £7,300.00 ) and gained £292.00 . The reward made was 20% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

Reward Spread betting
£292.00 (profit)  /  £1,460.00(deposit)   = 20% (return)

If instead you were buying the asset (Isentia Group Ltd (ISD.AX)) not leveraged on the Australia Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 4% (£292.00 / £7,300.00)

Buying the asset non leveraged
£292.00 profit  /  £7,300.00 (cost to buy ISD.AX ) = 4% return
  • Slippage

Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

    therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

    • Reward

    The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 25% on BLK.AX .

    For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £675.00 (25% of the full value £2,700.00 ) and gained £243.00 . The reward made was 36% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

    Reward Spread betting
    £243.00 (profit)  /  £675.00(deposit)   = 36% (return)

    If instead you were buying the asset (Blackham Resources Ltd (BLK.AX)) not leveraged on the Australia Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 9% (£243.00 / £2,700.00)

    Buying the asset non leveraged
    £243.00 profit  /  £2,700.00 (cost to buy BLK.AX ) = 9% return
    • Slippage

    Slippage is when an order is filled at a price that is different than the requested price. This because trading there was no trading at your desired price and the broker gives you the first available price in the market

    Another factor to consider is if you hold your trade in Blackham Resources Ltd over night, when the Australia Stock Exchange is closed( Trading hours are 10:00 AM – 04:00 PM(+10 Hours GMT) in Australia ), and there is majour news that will affect the price in Blackham Resources Limited, you can suffer slippage.

    Other useful information about your trade

    • Risk

    As you can see from the example above spread betting can be very profitable or can bring big losses, given that the deposit required (25%) to open a trade is only a fraction of the trade value. Now, let’s do the calculations of the risk reward on the egsample above.

    We traded Betashares Global Cybersecurity Etf at £20.00 (your stake) a point. The price of HACK.AX on Australia Stock Exchange is 5.55. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 5.55) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£11,100.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

    £20.00 (your stake) x 5.55 = £11,100.00(max potential risk)

    therefore it is important to place your stop loss at the maximum potential loss you are willing to incurr when trading

    • Reward

    The rewards on the other hand can be big, given that the deposit required is only 25% on HACK.AX .

    For egsample, in our trade above we put down a deposit of £2,775.00 (25% of the full value £11,100.00 ) and gained £444.00 . The reward made was 16% on the funds we used in this example. This is the power of leverage and what makes spread betting so attractive. Furthemore, these profits and losses are not taxed.

    Reward Spread betting
    £444.00 (profit)  /  £2,775.00(deposit)   = 16% (return)

    If instead you were buying the asset (Betashares Global Cybersecurity Etf (HACK.AX)) not leveraged on the Australia Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 4% (£444.00 / £11,100.00)

    Buying the asset non leveraged
    £444.00 profit  /  £11,100.00 (cost to buy HACK.AX ) = 4% return

      We traded Mitula Group Ltd at £50.00 (your stake) a point. The price of MUA.AX on Australia Stock Exchange is 0.89. If we multiply the stake by the price ( 0.89) we get the full value of the asset you are holding(£4,450.00), which could also be the potential loss of the trade, given no stoploss is placed.

      £50.00 (your stake) x 0.89 = £4,450.00(max potential risk)

      Reward Spread betting

      If instead you were buying the asset (Mitula Group Ltd (MUA.AX)) not leveraged on the Australia Stock Exchange, your reward would have been 8% (£356.00 / £4,450.00)

      Buying the asset non leveraged
