How to Spread Bet on EUR/CAD

How to Spread Bet on EUR/CAD?


As with a wide range of financial markets, it is possible to spread bet on currency pairs, like EUR/CAD, to rise or fall.

Logging onto Capital Spreads, we can see that they are valuing the EUR/CAD Rolling Daily market at C$1.24999 - C$1.25079. As a result, you could spread bet on the EUR/CAD pair:

  EUR/CAD Trading Example Going higher than C$1.25079, or
  EUR/CAD Spread Trading Example Going lower than C$1.24999

Whilst financial spread trading on EUR/CAD you trade in £x per point where a point is C$0.00010 of the pairs movement. Therefore, should you decide to risk £4 per point and EUR/CAD moves 30.0 points then that would be a difference to your profit/loss of £120. £4 per point x C$0.00300 = £4 per point x 30.0 points = £120.

Rolling Daily Foreign Exchange Markets

It's important to note that this is a Rolling Daily Market and so there is no settlement date for this market. If you decide to leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

If you do let your FX position roll over then you are charged a small overnight financing fee. For a more detailed example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


EUR/CAD Trading Example 1


Now, if we take the spread of C$1.24999 - C$1.25079 and make the assumptions that:
  • You have completed your analysis, and
  • Your research suggests that the EUR/CAD rate will rise above C$1.25079
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at C$1.25079 for a stake of, let’s say, £4 per point.

With such a bet you make a profit of £4 for every point (C$0.00010) that the EUR/CAD rate moves higher than C$1.25079. On the other hand, such a bet also means you will make a loss of £4 for every point that the EUR/CAD market moves lower than C$1.25079.

Put another way, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are worked out 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 your stake.

If after a few sessions the rate started to move upwards then you could choose to close your trade and therefore lock in your profits.

If that happened then the spread, set by the spread trading company, might change to C$1.25448 - C$1.25528. In order to close your position you would sell at C$1.25448. Therefore, with the same £4 stake you would calculate your profit as:

Profit / loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (C$1.25448 - C$1.25079) x £4 per point stake
Profit / loss = C$0.00369 x £4 per point stake
Profit / loss = 36.9 points x £4 per point stake
Profit / loss = £147.60 profit

Spread betting is not always simple. In this example, you had bet that the currency pair would go up. However, the FX rate can also go down.

If the EUR/CAD market fell then you could choose to close your position in order to limit your losses.

If the market fell to C$1.24735 - C$1.24815 then this means you would settle your position by selling at C$1.24735. So your loss would be calculated as:

Profit / loss = (Final Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (C$1.24735 - C$1.25079) x £4 per point stake
Profit / loss = -C$0.00344 x £4 per point stake
Profit / loss = -34.4 points x £4 per point stake
Profit / loss = -£137.60 loss

How to Spread Bet on Euro - Canadian Dollar

How to Spread Bet on Euro - Canadian Dollar - Example 2


Looking at a spread trading platform like Tradefair, we can see they are currently valuing the Euro - Canadian Dollar Rolling Daily market at C$1.27267 - C$1.27347. This means you can put a spread bet on the Euro - Canadian Dollar pair:

  Euro - Canadian Dollar Spread Trading Example Rising higher than C$1.27347, or
  Euro - Canadian Dollar Spread Betting Example Falling lower than C$1.27267

When financial spread trading on Euro - Canadian Dollar you trade in £x per point where a point is C$0.00010 of the pairs movement. Therefore, if you choose to risk £4 per point and Euro - Canadian Dollar moves 37.0 points then there would be a difference to your P&L of £148. £4 per point x C$0.00370 = £4 per point x 37.0 points = £148.

So, if we think about the spread of C$1.27267 - C$1.27347 and assume:
  • You have completed your analysis of the markets, and
  • Your analysis suggests that the Euro - Canadian Dollar rate will go above C$1.27347
Then you may buy at C$1.27347 for a stake of £3 per point.

With such a spread bet you make a profit of £3 for every point (C$0.00010) that the Euro - Canadian Dollar rate rises higher than C$1.27347. Having said that, you will make a loss of £3 for every point that the Euro - Canadian Dollar market falls lower than C$1.27347.

Looking at this from another angle, should you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L 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 price difference by the stake.

As a result, if after a few sessions the foreign exchange rate rose then you might want to close your position to lock in your profit.

Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread could change to C$1.27665 - C$1.27745. You would close your spread bet by selling at C$1.27665. Therefore, with the same £3 stake your profit would come to:

Profit / loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (C$1.27665 - C$1.27347) x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = C$0.00318 x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = 31.8 points x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = £95.40 profit

Financial spread trading on FX is not simple. With this example, you had bet that the forex pair would rise. However, it might decrease.

If the Euro - Canadian Dollar market had fallen then you could close your trade to stop any further losses.

So if the market dropped to C$1.26978 - C$1.27058 then this means you would close your trade by selling at C$1.26978. That would mean you would lose:

Profit / loss = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (C$1.26978 - C$1.27347) x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -C$0.00369 x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -36.9 points x £3 per point stake
Profit / loss = -£110.70 loss
