How To Trade Shares and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) Using Financial Spread Betting

Financial Spread Betting or also known as Financial Spread Trading is sometimes thought of as a short-term business, in which bets are placed for a few days or even hours in search of quick profits. It is certainly possible to do well out of short-term spread betting but you shouldn’t overlook the possibilities of betting over the long term too, as there can be significant advantages over traditional share trading in terms of convenience and cost.

Spread betting involves less difficulty than share trading and it can work out More cost effective, because of the costs involved in buying and selling shares through a broker. You pay commission when you buy and sell shares (this might be £10 each time on a small trade, more for larger ones) and stamp duty of 0.5pc when you buy. These dealing costs can make a big dent in profits and increase your break-even point.

With financial spread betting, the cost of a quarterly bet is included in the spread and there is generally no tax to pay* (though you should check your tax situation). Because financial spread betting is leveraged – you are not buying the underlying shares – capital outlay is much lower than in traditional share trading. Think of it like a mortgage on your house, you get to buy an asset with just a percentage upfront.

Short-term bets of a few hours or days can be a good way of taking advantage of sudden shifts in price. Many traders like to place short-term bets on market indices such as the FTSE100 or the Dow Jones, where movements are often the result of macroeconomic trends.

When betting short-term, it is advisable to keep a close eye on the way the market is moving, so that you can get out at the right time. Automated share price alerts make this easier and now most financial bookmakers such as IG Index have Apps which allow you to check prices on the go from your phone or iPad. Financial Spread betting in the longer term – weeks or months – allows you to take a view of the fundamental strengths of individual shares, without worrying too much about short-term price fluctuations. By using a longer dated contract you are not as focused on short term moves.

Spread betting is similar to share trading, although it is important to use stop-losses to help manage risk by limiting the amount of losses you can make on a single trade. When you place your bet, you specify a lower limit: if the share price falls to that limit, the bet is automatically closed and you will suffer no further losses. Anyone with experience of share trading can use the knowledge they have gained when spread betting. Also make sure you use money management and only place a percentage on your trading account on any one particular share.

For a small premium you could take out a guaranteed stop-loss. This removes the risk, present in very volatile markets. Your position will close at the level you set. With a guaranteed stop-loss, your risk can never exceed the chosen level.

With short-term bets, it is a good idea to set a narrow stop-loss limit, so that you are not caught out by a sudden market swing. With long-term bets you can set the limits a little wider – and the potential profits can be considerable.

IBM will help power the Dow to a new all-time high in 2013

“The reason is that a man may see straight and clearly and yet become impatient or doubtful when the market takes its time about doing as he figured it must do. That is why so many men in Wall Street, who are not at all in the sucker class, not even in the third grade, nevertheless lose money. The market does not beat them. They beat themselves, because though they have brains they cannot sit tight. Old Turkey was dead right in doing and saying what he did. He had not only the courage of his convictions but the intelligent patience to sit tight.”

Jesse Livermore -Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

IBM is a stock that I have owned many years, Its a member of the DOW 30 and a true multi national blue chip stock. It was the strength in IBM that partly made me come out with the Dow 14200+ call around 12 months ago. As long as IBM stays strong and pushes to new highs then so will the Dow. Yes it’s had a few months of pause, base building but that is bullish. 25 year chart below.

Investing and Trading Blind?

While “day trading” and short-term bets may sound exciting the truth is that my wealth has not come from short terms bets. It has come from trading trends over weeks, months and years. While brokers and bookmakers like to generate more business from active customers, the winners in the long run are the least active traders. For many readers that are more conservative and with a little grey hair, you will not be suited to short term in and out trading. As a trend trader I am not glued to a screen all day and only check prices at the end of the day and on some trades only once a week.

Money management is the key to survival

A good trader does not need to make money that often. In fact, you could get 80% of your trades wrong and still make money. Let’s say you lose £100 on 8 trades and you then make £500 on two trades, you are in profit. However sure you are that the market will crash or ABC is going to soar, make your first trade a small one, and then, if you are correct, add more to that trade.

Pyramiding a successful trade is the key to making large returns. Never add to a losing trade!

Cut losses and let winners run

Everyone tells you this, but few can do it. Trading comes down to psychology and everyone wants to win and no one likes to be wrong or be classed as a loser. Most unsuccessful traders take profits quickly, yet they will let losing trades run and run as they hope things will get better. What I suggest is that you have a mechanical approach to exits and entries. That is, you have a cut out point set on opening a trade. Financial Bookmakers offer a guaranteed stop loss on most products. This means that you can place a bet knowing that the most you can lose is known, say £200, yet your profit could be unlimited. Another good tip is to trail stops, which means you lock in some profits yet keep the trade running. Once a trade moves into profit, you could move the stop loss to you entry point; this means that the worse case scenario is a break-even trade. Many class spread trading “as risky or for gamblers”.

This is totally untrue as in fact with a guaranteed stop loss your risk is totally known ahead of time unlike buying shares with a stockbroker. Another point is that most new traders spend too much time planning when to get in and buy, when in fact they should spend much more time on the exit strategy and how much they are going to trade.

Make More Money Trading stocks,commodities & FX — Think Less and Trade What you See

www.winonmarkets.net Want to know the difference between what winning financial traders and losing one’s do? Well here are a few pointers from Self Made millionaire trader Vince Stanzione and author of Maximum Trading profits in Minimum time and Making Money From Financial Spread Trading:

  1. Winning traders trade what they SEE not what they think. 

If the price goes to 50, 51, 55, 60, it is going up, it doesn’t matter what the indicator or news says or what you THINK should be happening, the price tells you the truth and should always be obeyed.  Many new traders lose larger amounts of money trying to pick the top or a bottom, this is risky and not required to succeed – unless you have psychic powers then stick to a trading system and don’t guess.

 

2.Don’t get carried away by technology

It’s easy to get blown away by all the great software, on-line trading, real time data, charts, business channels, apps and bells and whistles. The truth is, less is more, and information overload makes you a worse trader. The more complicated your system, the less chance it will work or that you will follow it. The majority of technical trading indicators are a total waste of time and you do not need to waste money on expensive trading software that claims to predict markets. The most important factor when trading any market is the price.

3. In trading and investing we are dealing in unknowns and factors out of our control – what you can control is the amount of money you risk on any one investment. How ever sure you are that XYZ is going to soar make sure you only invest a percentage of your trading bank that should it not turnout as you hoped you can still live to fight another day. If you money manage and keep losses small and your wins big then you can lose more times than you win and still make money.

4. When Vince was a broker he had access to 1000’s of client accounts and could see how they traded – the majority would cut winning trades very quickly but let losing trades run “hoping “ that they would turn around. You cannot afford to trade and invest like this – if something is not working out as planned cut it and get out – taking a small lose now is less painful than taking a big lose latter.

5. Don’t have a directional bias.

Many want to either always to just buy and go long a market, others are always bearish and want to go short – a good trader should be natural and happy to trade markets either way. For example Vince may be long a stock for many months that is in an up trend and then when it breaks that trend he will sell and go short, allowing him to profit from Up and Down moves.

The Luck of the Irish – St Patricks Day Stockmarket – Financial Spread Betting

With St. Paddy’s day coming up fast (Saturday 17th March) and every one being in a slightly better mood as the days become lighter (US clocks have already changed) and many parties being organised all over the US (remember Wall Street has massive Irish roots – the NYSE is normally lit up in Green) and a Guinness or two being consumed it was interesting to see how this effects markets.

The run up to St Patrick’s Day which is also the triple witching week as March futures and options expire and June becomes the front month has seen gains in over 79% of the time over the last 20 years. Average gains around 1% – the week following tends to be less positive as traders return back on Monday with sore heads.  So based on history the Dow has ever chance to close at over 13000 to 13050.

On the subject of Guinness makes Diageo (LSE:DGE or NYSE:DEO) closed at an all-time high yesterday and as you know from my seminars I have owned these since 2007 and forms part of my core Tobacco, Alcohol, Gaming and Fast Foods holdings.
