How to Spread Bet on AUD/NZD

How to Spread Bet on AUD/NZD?


As with many global financial markets, you can speculate on FX rates, like AUD/NZD, to go up or down.

Looking at a spread trading website like FinancialSpreads.com, we can see that they are currently showing the AUD/NZD Rolling Daily market at NZ$1.27569 - NZ$1.27669. This means that an investor could put a spread bet on the AUD/NZD pair:

  AUD/NZD Trading Example Going above NZ$1.27669, or
  AUD/NZD Spread Trading Example Going below NZ$1.27569

When spread trading on AUD/NZD you trade in £x per point where a point is NZ$0.00010 of the pairs movement. So, if you decide to invest £4 per point and AUD/NZD moves 20.0 points then that would change your profits (or losses) by £80. £4 per point x NZ$0.00200 = £4 per point x 20.0 points = £80.

Rolling Daily Foreign Exchange Markets

This is a Rolling Daily Market which means that in contrast with futures markets, there is no closing date. As a result, if your trade is still open at the end of the trading day, it simply keeps rolling over into the next day.

If you do roll over a forex trade then you'll usually be charged a small overnight financing fee. For more information see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


AUD/NZD Trading Example 1


Now, if you consider the above spread of NZ$1.27569 - NZ$1.27669 and make the assumptions that:
  • You've analysed the foreign exchange markets, and
  • Your research leads you to think that the AUD/NZD rate will go higher than NZ$1.27669
Then you could decide to go long of the market at NZ$1.27669 and risk, for example, £3 per point.

This means that you win £3 for every point (NZ$0.00010) that the AUD/NZD rate moves above NZ$1.27669. On the other hand, it also means you will make a loss of £3 for every point that the AUD/NZD market moves below NZ$1.27669.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the final 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 sessions the rate started to increase then you might think about closing your trade and therefore lock in your profits.

As an example, if the market increased then the spread might move to NZ$1.28116 - NZ$1.28216. To close your trade you would sell at NZ$1.28116. Accordingly, with the same £3 stake you would make a profit of:

Profit / loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (NZ$1.28116 - NZ$1.27669) x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = NZ$0.00447 x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = 44.7 points x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = £134.10 profit

Speculating on currencies, whether by spread betting or otherwise, is not simple. With the above, you wanted the forex rate to increase. Of course, the currency rate might fall.

If the AUD/NZD market had fallen then you might choose to close your spread bet to stop any further losses.

Should the market pull back to NZ$1.27273 - NZ$1.27373 then this means you would close your trade by selling at NZ$1.27273. As a result, your loss would be:

Profit / loss = (Final Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (NZ$1.27273 - NZ$1.27669) x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -NZ$0.00396 x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -39.6 points x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -£118.80 loss

How to Spread Bet on Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar

Spread Betting on Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar - Example 2


Looking at a financial spread betting site like Tradefair, we can see that they are offering the Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar Rolling Daily market at NZ$1.26093 - NZ$1.26193. As a result, you can put a spread bet on the Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar pair:

  Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar Spread Betting Example Rising above NZ$1.26193, or
  Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar Spread Trading Example Falling below NZ$1.26093

When placing a spread bet on Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar you trade in £x per point where a point is NZ$0.00010 of the pairs movement. As a result, if you staked £5 per point and Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar moves 25.0 points then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of £125. £5 per point x NZ$0.00250 = £5 per point x 25.0 points = £125.

So, if we take the above spread of NZ$1.26093 - NZ$1.26193 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have completed your forex market research, and
  • Your research leads you to think that the Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar market will increase and go above NZ$1.26193
Then you could decide that you want to buy a spread bet at NZ$1.26193 and invest, let’s say, £2 per point.

With such a bet you win £2 for every point (NZ$0.00010) that the Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar rate rises higher than NZ$1.26193. Nevertheless, it also means that you will lose £2 for every point that the Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar market falls below NZ$1.26193.

Put another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are worked out by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

If after a few days the currency rate rose then you might consider closing your spread bet so that you can secure your profit.

So if the market moved up then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to NZ$1.26635 - NZ$1.26735. In order to close/settle your position you would sell at NZ$1.26635. Therefore, with the same £2 stake you would make a profit of:

Profit / loss = (Final Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profit / loss = (NZ$1.26635 - NZ$1.26193) x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = NZ$0.00442 x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = 44.2 points x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = £88.40 profit

Speculating on forex, whether by spread betting or otherwise, can go against you. In this case, you had bet that the FX pair would increase. Naturally, the forex rate can also fall.

If the Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar rate decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you might choose to close your position in order to restrict your losses.

Should the spread fall back to NZ$1.25720 - NZ$1.25820 you would settle your position by selling at NZ$1.25720. That would mean you would make a loss of:

Profit / loss = (Final Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profit / loss = (NZ$1.25720 - NZ$1.26193) x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -NZ$0.00473 x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -47.3 points x £2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -£94.60 loss

Note: Australian Dollar - New Zealand Dollar Rolling Daily FX market correct as of 18-Sep-12.
