Sectors bet product details

Spread bet on 35 key FTSE 350 sectors

1. Sectors bets can be made in two ways: as a Daily Funded Bet (DFB) or as a futures bet (Quarterly bet). DFBs have an expiry some way out in the future and the expiry months for Quarterly bets rotate on a March, June, September, December cycle. Prices are quoted for the current and next quarter month.

2. Our quotes an ‘all-in’ spread for sectors, which includes both our spread and market spread. The spread is usually calculated as a percentage of the current sector price as follows:

DFB: 0.2% of sector price
Near quarter: 0.6% of sector price
Far quarter: 0.7% of sector price
3. For limited-risk bets a limited-risk premium is charged if your guaranteed stop is triggered. The potential premium is displayed on the deal ticket, and will form part of your margin when you attach the stop. Please note that premiums are subject to change, especially going into weekends and during volatile market conditions.

4. The margin factor will normally be 5% of the price of the sector in question. Thus a sector priced at 2000 will normally incur a deposit 100 times the bet size.

5. The minimum bet size for sectors is £0.50 per point (for online dealing).

6. Dealing hours: Monday–Friday, 08.15–16.30.

7. The last dealing day for Quarterly bets will be the Tuesday before the third Wednesday of the contract month.
