How to Spread Bet on EUR/CHF

How to Spread Bet on EUR/CHF?


As with a lot of financial markets, it is possible to spread bet on foreign exchange rates, such as EUR/CHF, to go up or down.

Looking at a financial spread betting platform like InterTrader, we can see that they are currently offering the EUR/CHF Rolling Daily market at SFr 1.20727 - SFr 1.20747. As a result, you can spread bet on the EUR/CHF rate:

  EUR/CHF Spread Trading Example Increasing above SFr 1.20747, or
  EUR/CHF Trading Example Decreasing below SFr 1.20727

When placing a spread bet on EUR/CHF you trade in x per point where a point is SFr 0.00010 of the pairs movement. As a result, if you decide to have a stake of 3 per point and EUR/CHF moves 21.0 points then there would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of 63. 3 per point x SFr 0.00210 = 3 per point x 21.0 points = 63.

Rolling Daily FX Markets

You should note that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market', therefore unlike a futures market, there is no closing date. You do not have to close your trade, should it still be open at the end of the trading day, it will stay open and roll over into the next day.

If you do let your forex bet roll over then you are normally charged a small financing fee. For more information see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


EUR/CHF Trading Example 1


So, if you take the spread of SFr 1.20727 - SFr 1.20747 and assume:
  • You have done your research, and
  • Your research leads you to think that the EUR/CHF market will increase and move higher than SFr 1.20747
Then you could decide that you are going to go long of the market at SFr 1.20747 and risk, for the sake of argument, 2 per point.

With such a bet you make a profit of 2 for every point (SFr 0.00010) that the EUR/CHF pair increases above SFr 1.20747. Having said that, such a bet also means that you will lose 2 for every point that the EUR/CHF market falls below SFr 1.20747.

Looked at another way, should you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are 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 the stake.

As a result, if after a few days the FX rate moved higher then you might want to close your trade in order to secure your profit.

As an example, if the market increased then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, might change to SFr 1.21230 - SFr 1.21250. To close your trade you would sell at SFr 1.21230. So, with the same 2 stake this trade would make you a profit of:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (SFr 1.21230 - SFr 1.20747) x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = SFr 0.00483 x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = 48.3 points x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = 96.60 profit

Financial spread trading on FX can work against you. With the above, you had bet that the FX pair would increase. However, the currency rate can also fall.

If the EUR/CHF rate had started to fall then you might choose to close your trade in order to restrict your losses.

So if the spread dropped to SFr 1.20355 - SFr 1.20375 then this means you would settle your position by selling at SFr 1.20355. If so, your loss would be calculated as:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Level - Initial Level) x stake
Profit / loss = (SFr 1.20355 - SFr 1.20747) x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -SFr 0.00392 x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -39.2 points x 2 per point stake
Profit / loss = -78.40 loss

How to Spread Bet on Euro - Swiss Franc

How to Spread Bet on Euro - Swiss Franc - Example 2


Looking at a platform like capital spreads, you can see they have priced the Euro - Swiss Franc Rolling Daily market at SFr 1.21289 - SFr 1.21309. As a result, an investor can spread bet on the Euro - Swiss Franc rate:

  Euro - Swiss Franc Spread Betting Example Rising above SFr 1.21309, or
  Euro - Swiss Franc Spread Trading Example Falling below SFr 1.21289

Whilst placing a spread bet on Euro - Swiss Franc you trade in x per point where a point is SFr 0.00010 of the pairs movement. Therefore, if you decide to have a stake of 2 per point and Euro - Swiss Franc moves 28.0 points then that would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of 56. 2 per point x SFr 0.00280 = 2 per point x 28.0 points = 56.

So, if we take the spread of SFr 1.21289 - SFr 1.21309 and assume:
  • You have completed your market research, and
  • You think the Euro - Swiss Franc rate will move higher than SFr 1.21309
Then you may decide to go long of the market at SFr 1.21309 and risk, lets say, 3 per point.

Therefore, you make a profit of 3 for every point (SFr 0.00010) that the Euro - Swiss Franc pair moves above SFr 1.21309. Nevertheless, it also means that you will make a loss of 3 for every point that the Euro - Swiss Franc market goes below SFr 1.21309.

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 price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by the stake.

If after a few trading sessions the foreign exchange rate moved higher then you could consider closing your spread bet to secure your profit.

As an example, should the market rise, the spread, set by the spread trading company, might change to SFr 1.21673 - SFr 1.21693. To settle/close your trade you would sell at SFr 1.21673. Therefore, with the same 3 stake this trade would result in a profit of:

Profit = (Final Level - Opening Level) x stake
Profit = (SFr 1.21673 - SFr 1.21309) x 3 per point stake
Profit = SFr 0.00364 x 3 per point stake
Profit = 36.4 points x 3 per point stake
Profit = 109.20 profit

Speculating on forex, by spread betting or otherwise, may not go to plan. With the above, you wanted the currency pair to increase. Nevertheless, the currency rate could fall.

If the Euro - Swiss Franc market decreased, contrary to your expectations, then you could choose to close your spread bet in order to limit your losses.

Should the spread fall back to SFr 1.20884 - SFr 1.20904 you would close your trade by selling at SFr 1.20884. If so, your loss would be calculated as:

Loss = (Final Level - Opening Level) x stake
Loss = (SFr 1.20884 - SFr 1.21309) x 3 per point stake
Loss = -SFr 0.00425 x 3 per point stake
Loss = -42.5 points x 3 per point stake
Loss = -127.50 loss

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