How to Spread Bet on AUD/CHF

How to Spread Bet on AUD/CHF?


As with a wide range of markets, an investor can speculate on currency rates, such as AUD/CHF, to go up or down.

Looking at a site like Financial Spreads, we can see they are pricing the AUD/CHF Rolling Daily market at SFr 0.98009 - SFr 0.98059. As a result, you could spread bet on the AUD/CHF pair:

  AUD/CHF Spread Trading Example Increasing higher than SFr 0.98059, or
  AUD/CHF Trading Example Decreasing lower than SFr 0.98009

Whilst placing a spread bet on AUD/CHF you trade in x per point where a point is SFr 0.00010 of the pairs movement. So, if you choose to risk 3 per point and AUD/CHF moves 35.0 points then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of 105. 3 per point x SFr 0.00350 = 3 per point x 35.0 points = 105.

Rolling Daily Foreign Exchange Markets

Be aware that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so there is no settlement date for this market. As a result, if your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

If a forex trade is rolled over then you will often be charged a small financing fee. You can learn more about Rolling Daily Markets in our article Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


AUD/CHF Trading Example 1


Now, if we take the above spread of SFr 0.98009 - SFr 0.98059 and assume:
  • You've completed your market research, and
  • Your research leads you to feel that the AUD/CHF rate will increase and move higher than SFr 0.98059
Then you could go long of the market at SFr 0.98059 and risk, for the sake of argument, 2 per point.

Therefore, you make a profit of 2 for every point (SFr 0.00010) that the AUD/CHF rate rises above SFr 0.98059. However, it also means that you will make a loss of 2 for every point that the AUD/CHF market moves below SFr 0.98059.

Looking at this from another angle, if you were to Buy a spread bet then your P&L is worked out by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

As a result, if after a few sessions the currency rate started to increase then you might want to close your spread bet to secure your profit.

So if the market rose then the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to SFr 0.98451 - SFr 0.98501. You would close your spread bet by selling at SFr 0.98451. As a result, with the same 2 stake you would make a profit of:

P&L = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
P&L = (SFr 0.98451 - SFr 0.98059) x 2 per point stake
P&L = SFr 0.00392 x 2 per point stake
P&L = 39.2 points x 2 per point stake
P&L = 78.40 profit

Trading forex, whether by spread betting or not, is not straightforward. In this example, you had bet that the forex pair would rise. Naturally, it can also fall.

If the AUD/CHF market weakened, against your expectations, then you might choose to close your position to stop any further losses.

Should the spread pull back to SFr 0.97593 - SFr 0.97643 you would settle/close your trade by selling at SFr 0.97593. If so, that would mean you would lose:

P&L = (Closing Level - Opening Level) x stake
P&L = (SFr 0.97593 - SFr 0.98059) x 2 per point stake
P&L = -SFr 0.00466 x 2 per point stake
P&L = -46.6 points x 2 per point stake
P&L = -93.20 loss

How to Spread Bet on Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc

How to Spread Bet on Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc - Example 2


Looking at a spread betting platform like InterTrader, we can see they are currently offering the Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc Rolling Daily market at SFr 0.96894 - SFr 0.96944. As a result, an investor could spread trade on the Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc rate:

  Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc Spread Betting Example Increasing higher than SFr 0.96944, or
  Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc Trading Example Decreasing lower than SFr 0.96894

When spread betting on Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc you trade in x per point where a point is SFr 0.00010 of the pairs movement. As a result, if you choose to invest 4 per point and Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc moves 39.0 points then there would be a difference to your P&L of 156. 4 per point x SFr 0.00390 = 4 per point x 39.0 points = 156.

So, if you take the above spread of SFr 0.96894 - SFr 0.96944 and make the assumptions:
  • You have completed your FX market analysis, and
  • Your research suggests the Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc rate will move higher than SFr 0.96944
Then you might buy at SFr 0.96944 for a stake of 3 per point.

With such a spread bet you win 3 for every point (SFr 0.00010) that the Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc pair increases above SFr 0.96944. However, it also means that you will make a loss of 3 for every point that the Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc market decreases lower than SFr 0.96944.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, should you buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is worked out by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by your stake.

As a result, if after a few days the FX rate rose then you might consider closing your position to lock in your profit.

If that happened then the spread might move to SFr 0.97332 - SFr 0.97382. To settle/close your trade you would sell at SFr 0.97332. Therefore, with the same 3 stake your profit would be:

P&L = (Closing Value - Initial Value) x stake
P&L = (SFr 0.97332 - SFr 0.96944) x 3 per point stake
P&L = SFr 0.00388 x 3 per point stake
P&L = 38.8 points x 3 per point stake
P&L = 116.40 profit

Trading forex, by spread betting or otherwise, can work against you. With the above, you had bet that the FX pair would go up. Of course, the forex rate might decrease.

If the Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc market decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could close your trade to limit your losses.

Should the market fall back to SFr 0.96484 - SFr 0.96534 then this means you would close your position by selling at SFr 0.96484. That would mean you would lose:

P&L = (Closing Value - Initial Value) x stake
P&L = (SFr 0.96484 - SFr 0.96944) x 3 per point stake
P&L = -SFr 0.00460 x 3 per point stake
P&L = -46.0 points x 3 per point stake
P&L = -138.00 loss

Note: Australian Dollar - Swiss Franc Rolling Daily forex market correct as of 18-Sep-12.
