EURCHF Spread Betting Example

EUR vs CHF Spread Bets
If you are thinking about spread betting on a currency pair like EURCHF then, looking at a platform like IG, you might find a price of SFr 1.21532 – SFr 1.21552.

Therefore, you could speculate on EURCHF to go higher than SFr 1.21552 or to go lower than SFr 1.21532.

If you are spread trading, you trade on every unit the market goes up or down; in the case of the EURCHF market a unit is SFr 0.00010 of the FX pair’s price movement.

For example, let’s say you want to stake £4 for every SFr 0.00010 EURCHF rises or falls.


Spread Betting on the Market to Increase

If you bought EURCHF at SFr 1.21552 and the FX pair increased then the quote might change to SFr 1.21795 – SFr 1.21815. If this were the case, you could close your trade by selling at SFr 1.21795.

Profits (or Losses) = (final level of the market – opening level of the market) x stake per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = (SFr 1.21795 – SFr 1.21552) x £4 per SFr 0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = SFr 0.00243 x £4 per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = £97.20 profit

The markets can of course fall, if the FX pair were to fall down to SFr 1.21291 – SFr 1.21311, you could choose to close your bet to restrict your losses. If that were to happen, you would place a sell trade at SFr 1.21291.

You would do this with the same £4 per SFr 0.00010 stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (final level of the market – opening level of the market) x stake per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = (SFr 1.21291 – SFr 1.21552) x £4 per SFr 0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = -SFr 0.00261 x £4 per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = -£104.40 loss


Spread Betting on the Market to Decrease

One of the benefits of using a spread bet is that you can sell the markets, i.e. bet that the markets will fall.

At the beginning of this example, the market was priced at SFr 1.21532 – SFr 1.21552.

If you shorted EURCHF at SFr 1.21532 and the FX pair fell then you might see the price move to SFr 1.21240 – SFr 1.21260. Therefore, you might want to close your trade for a profit at SFr 1.21260.

Profits (or Losses) = (opening level of the market – final level of the market) x stake per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = (SFr 1.21532 – SFr 1.21260) x £4 per SFr 0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = SFr 0.00272 x £4 per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = £108.80 profit

Of course, if the FX pair had increased to SFr 1.21805 – SFr 1.21825, you could choose to close your trade to prevent further losses. If that happened, you’d buy at SFr 1.21825.

So, with the same £4 per SFr 0.00010 stake:

Profits (or Losses) = (opening level of the market – final level of the market) x stake per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = (SFr 1.21532 – SFr 1.21825) x £4 per SFr 0.00010 stake
Profits (or Losses) = -SFr 0.00293 x £4 per SFr 0.00010
Profits (or Losses) = -£117.20 loss
