EURUSD Spread Bets

EURUSD Worked Spread Betting Example



If you are interested in spread betting on an FX rate like EURUSD then, looking at a firm like InterTrader, you might get a quote of $1.34481 - $1.34491.

Therefore, you could bet on EURUSD to move higher than $1.34491 or to move lower than $1.34481.

When spread trading, investors speculate on every unit the market moves up or down. In the case of the EURUSD market a unit is $0.00010 of the currency pair's price movement.

Let's say, for this instance, you choose to stake 3 for every $0.00010 EURUSD rises or falls.


Spread Betting on the Market to Go Up



If you were to buy EURUSD at $1.34491 and the currency pair went up then you might see the price move to $1.34989 - $1.34999. If so, you might want to close your trade for a profit by selling at $1.34989.

Profits (or Losses) = (closing price of the market - initial price of the market) x stake per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = ($1.34989 - $1.34491) x 3 per $0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = $0.00498 x 3 per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = 149.40 profit

However, if the currency pair were to fall to $1.34034 - $1.34044, you could choose to close your bet to prevent further losses. If this were the case, you would sell back at $1.34034.

With the same 3 per $0.00010 stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (closing price of the market - initial price of the market) x stake per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = ($1.34034 - $1.34491) x 3 per $0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = -$0.00457 x 3 per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = -137.10 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Go Down



A useful benefit of placing a spread bet is that you can go short of the markets, i.e. bet that the markets are going to go down.

When we began this example, the market was priced at $1.34481 - $1.34491.

If you went short of EURUSD at $1.34481 and the currency pair went down then the market might be re-priced at $1.33924 - $1.33934. In that case, you might want to close your position for a profit by buying at $1.33934.

Profits (or Losses) = (initial price of the market - closing price of the market) x stake per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = ($1.34481 - $1.33934) x 3 per $0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = $0.00547 x 3 per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = 164.10 profit

Markets do of course rise, if the currency pair had moved up to $1.34974 - $1.34984, you might decide to close your position to restrict your losses. Therefore, you'd buy at $1.34984.

Therefore, with the same 3 per $0.00010 stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (initial price of the market - closing price of the market) x stake per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = ($1.34481 - $1.34984) x 3 per $0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = -$0.00503 x 3 per $0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = -150.90 loss
