How to Spread Bet on CAD/CHF

How to Spread Bet on CAD/CHF?


As with a wide variety of global markets, investors can spread bet on forex rates, like CAD/CHF, to go up or down.

Looking at a spread trading website like FinancialSpreads.com, we can see they are showing the CAD/CHF Rolling Daily market at SFr 0.96563 - SFr 0.96623. This means an investor could put a spread bet on the CAD/CHF rate:

  CAD/CHF Trading Example Increasing above SFr 0.96623, or
  CAD/CHF Spread Betting Example Decreasing below SFr 0.96563

When spread betting on CAD/CHF you trade in x per point where a point is SFr 0.00010 of the pairs movement. So, if you risked 4 per point and CAD/CHF moves 30.0 points then there would be a difference to your P&L of 120. 4 per point x SFr 0.00300 = 4 per point x 30.0 points = 120.

Rolling Daily Forex Markets

An important aspect of this Rolling Daily Market is that unlike a normal futures market, there is no closing date. Should your trade be left open at the end of the trading day, it just rolls over into the next session.

Should your forex spread bet roll over then you usually pay a small overnight financing fee. You can learn more in our feature Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


CAD/CHF Trading Example 1


So, if we consider the spread of SFr 0.96563 - SFr 0.96623 and assume that:
  • You have completed your forex market research, and
  • Your research leads you to think the CAD/CHF rate will move above SFr 0.96623
Then you could go long of the market at SFr 0.96623 for a stake of, for example, 3 per point.

So, you make a profit of 3 for every point (SFr 0.00010) that the CAD/CHF pair pushes higher than SFr 0.96623. Conversely, however, you will make a loss of 3 for every point that the CAD/CHF market decreases below SFr 0.96623.

Put another way, if you buy a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

As a result, if after a few days the currency rate started to increase then you might think about closing your spread bet so that you can guarantee your profit.

So if the market moved up then the spread could change to SFr 0.96937 - SFr 0.96997. You would settle/close your trade by selling at SFr 0.96937. Accordingly, with the same 3 stake you would make a profit of:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (SFr 0.96937 - SFr 0.96623) x 3 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = SFr 0.00314 x 3 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = 31.4 points x 3 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = 94.20 profit

Trading forex, by spread betting or otherwise, is not always straightforward. In this example, you had bet that the FX pair would increase. Naturally, the forex rate can also decrease.

If the CAD/CHF market dropped then you could close your position in order to restrict your losses.

Should the market drop to SFr 0.96261 - SFr 0.96321 then you would settle your position by selling at SFr 0.96261. This would result in a loss of:

Profits (or losses) = (Settlement Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profits (or losses) = (SFr 0.96261 - SFr 0.96623) x 3 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -SFr 0.00362 x 3 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -36.2 points x 3 per point stake
Profits (or losses) = -108.60 loss

How to Spread Bet on Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc

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


Looking at a spread betting site like FinancialSpreads, we can see they are offering the Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc Rolling Daily market at SFr 0.95177 - SFr 0.95237. Therefore, an investor can spread trade on the Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc rate:

  Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc Spread Trading Example Increasing higher than SFr 0.95237, or
  Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc Spread Betting Example Decreasing lower than SFr 0.95177

Whilst financial spread betting on Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc you trade in x per point where a point is SFr 0.00010 of the pairs movement. So, should you choose to risk 4 per point and Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc moves 25.0 points then that would change your P&L by 100. 4 per point x SFr 0.00250 = 4 per point x 25.0 points = 100.

Now, if you think about the spread of SFr 0.95177 - SFr 0.95237 and assume that:
  • You've completed your analysis of the markets, and
  • Your research suggests the Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc market will increase and move above SFr 0.95237
Then you may go long of the market at SFr 0.95237 for a stake of 2 per point.

So, you gain 2 for every point (SFr 0.00010) that the Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc pair moves higher than SFr 0.95237. Having said that, it also means that you will lose 2 for every point that the Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc market falls below SFr 0.95237.

Looking at this from another angle, if you buy a spread bet then your P&L is found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the initial price you bought the market at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

With this in mind, if after a few trading sessions the forex pair rose then you might consider closing your spread bet so that you can lock in your profit.

Taking this a step further, if the market did go up then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to SFr 0.95856 - SFr 0.95916. In order to close/settle your position you would sell at SFr 0.95856. Therefore, with the same 2 stake you would make a profit of:

Profit = (Final Value - Initial Value) x stake
Profit = (SFr 0.95856 - SFr 0.95237) x 2 per point stake
Profit = SFr 0.00619 x 2 per point stake
Profit = 61.9 points x 2 per point stake
Profit = 123.80 profit

Financial spread trading is not simple. In the above example, you had bet that the forex pair would increase. Naturally, the FX rate can also decrease.

If the Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc rate had started to fall then you could choose to close your position in order to limit your losses.

If the spread dropped to SFr 0.94689 - SFr 0.94749 then you would settle/close your trade by selling at SFr 0.94689. If so, this would result in a loss of:

Loss = (Final Value - Initial Value) x stake
Loss = (SFr 0.94689 - SFr 0.95237) x 2 per point stake
Loss = -SFr 0.00548 x 2 per point stake
Loss = -54.8 points x 2 per point stake
Loss = -109.60 loss

Note - Canadian Dollar - Swiss Franc Rolling Daily spread accurate as of 18-Sep-12.
