Forex Trading and Spread Betting in volatile markets
Foreign exchange cross rates and spreads are influenced by a number of factors including geopolitical factors ranging from the Tsunami and Nuclear Meltdown in Japan, the Arab Spring Revolution and even the demise of Osama Bin Laden.
Within Europe cable and sterling euro spreads are affected by factors such as the ongoing Eurozone sovereign debt crises in Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain as well as the market view of growth prospects and inflation risk in the UK
General market indicators also impact foreign exchange spreads. A key measure of market volatility is the VIX index (The “Chicago Board Options Exchange Market Volatility Index”). The VIX is quoted in percentage points and translates, roughly, to the expected movement in the S&P 500 index over the next 30-day period, which is then annualized. Although the VIX index is a US metric, it can be seen as proxy for broader trends in forex markets and thus help spread betting traders.
Volatility helps spread betting clients at firms like IGIndex, a London listed firm which allows its clients to take short term trading positions. Big swings can dramatically change the value of client portfolios given the leverage typically applied in a spread betting account. Volatility can impact value in both a negative and a positive direction. A trading account at a firm like IGIndex is not limited to foreign exchange products. Clients can also trade the spread in other asset classes such as commodities.
Foreign exchange spread betting can be a profitable activity however individuals should be aware of the risks involved, deal only with licensed and regulated companies and be aware that volatility can result in individuals losing more than their initial deposit amount. No individual should open a foreign exchange spread betting account without fully understanding the risks of so doing.
