How do digital 100s work?

A digital 100 is generally based on a single question with a yes/no answer. For example:

Will the underlying market do X before the digital 100 expires?

If you're right at the time of expiry, you win. If you're wrong, you lose.

To place a trade:

1. Select your market and position
2. Choose a timeframe
3. Decide your stake and maximum risk

What are the risks?

The fast-moving nature of digital 100s and sprints provides the possibility of short-term gains, alongside any potential losses. Although they are limited risk, you should be aware that there is still the potential to make substantial losses as well as gains.

Ladder

 

Digital 100 ladder

Market "Bitcoin ($) to be above 375 at 8pm"
Price 15
Deal Buy $10 per point at 15
What happens next? The price of bitcoin steadily rises and is trading at 375.5 at 8pm. The condition of your digital 100 has been met, the deal settles at 100.
Gross profit

Closing price (100) - opening price (15) = 85
Value per point = $10
85 x $10 = $850 gross profit

What if...

If the market had fallen below 375 at 8pm, your digital 100 would close at 0.

 

Opening price (15) - closing price (0) = 15
Value per point = $10
15 x $10 = $150 gross loss

Scenario You believe the bitcoin price will fall against the dollar
Current price 35000 / 35400
Deal You sell $1 per point at 35000 

(This trade is equivalent to selling 100 bitcoins at $350)

You sell one contract at 35000

 

(This trade is equivalent to selling 100 bitcoins at $350)

What happens next? The market falls to 33600 / 34000 and
you decide to take your profits by buying at 34000
Gross profit

Opening price (35000) - closing price (34000) = 1000 points

1000 points x $1 per point = $1000 gross profit

Opening price (35000) - closing price (34000) = 1000 points

1000 points x $1 per point = $1000 gross profit
What if...

If the market had rallied 500 points ($5),
you would incur a gross loss of $500
(500 x $1)

Example digital 100

With a FTSE 100 UP digital 100 you are being asked whether you think the FTSE 100 will be above 6444.89 at the close of the session.

If you agree you would 'buy' this digital 100, if you disagree you would 'sell' this digital 100.

The price you pay reflects the likelihood of the event happening as set by our trading desk based on the behaviour of the underlying market and the time remaining until expiry. Each digital 100 is priced between 0 and 100; the closer you get to expiry, the closer the price will move to either 0 or 100. 

In this example the digital 100 price is 86.2/89.5. Here, you would ‘buy’ at 89.5 or ‘sell’ at 86.2.  

However, digital 100s magnify very small movements in the underlying market. A sharp tick close to expiry could see the digital 100 price move dramatically.

For example, if the underlying market price was at 6458 just five minutes before the expiry of a FTSE 100—UP [>6444.89] digital 100, the price is likely to be close to 100 as the chance of it expiring above 6444.89 is quite high. However, if the FTSE suddenly kicks down to 6443 and the digital 100 expires below 6444.89, the price will instantly settle at 0 – potentially a large swing.
