GBPAUD Spread Betting Example

GBP vs AUD Spread Bets
If you are going to spread bet on a forex pair such as GBPAUD then, on visiting a site like FinancialSpreads, at the moment you’d see a quote of AU$1.80378 – AU$1.80478.

Therefore, you could speculate on GBPAUD to move higher than AU$1.80478 or to move lower than AU$1.80378.

With spread trading, you speculate on every unit the market goes up or down; in the case of the GBPAUD market a unit is AU$0.00010 of the forex rate’s price movement.

For example, let’s say you decide to bet £4 for every AU$0.00010 GBPAUD moves up or down.


Buying – Spread Betting on the Market to Increase

If you were to buy GBPAUD at AU$1.80478 and the forex rate rose then you might see the price move to AU$1.80884 – AU$1.80984. If that were to happen, you might choose to close your trade for a profit by selling at AU$1.80884.

Your Profits (or Losses) = (closing price of the market – opening price of the market) x stake per AU$0.00010
Your Profits (or Losses) = (AU$1.80884 – AU$1.80478) x £4 per AU$0.00010 stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = AU$0.00406 x £4 per AU$0.00010
Your Profits (or Losses) = £162.40 profit

Of course, if the forex rate had decreased to AU$1.80117 – AU$1.80217, you may decide to close your position to limit your losses. In that case, you’d sell at AU$1.80117.

Therefore, with the same £4 per AU$0.00010 stake:

Your Profits (or Losses) = (closing price of the market – opening price of the market) x stake per AU$0.00010
Your Profits (or Losses) = (AU$1.80117 – AU$1.80478) x £4 per AU$0.00010 stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = -AU$0.00361 x £4 per AU$0.00010
Your Profits (or Losses) = -£144.40 loss


Selling – Spread Betting on the Market to Decrease

A key feature of spread betting is that you can sell the markets.

This market was initially priced at AU$1.80378 – AU$1.80478.

If you were to go short of GBPAUD at AU$1.80378 and the forex rate went down then the quote might change to AU$1.79913 – AU$1.80013. If that happened, you might decide to close your bet for a profit at AU$1.80013.

Your Profits (or Losses) = (opening price of the market – closing price of the market) x stake per AU$0.00010
Your Profits (or Losses) = (AU$1.80378 – AU$1.80013) x £4 per AU$0.00010 stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = AU$0.00365 x £4 per AU$0.00010

Financial markets also move up, if the forex rate were to rise up to, for example, AU$1.80603 – AU$1.80703, you might decide to close your bet to prevent further losses. If so, you would buy at AU$1.80703.

With the same £4 per AU$0.00010 stake:

Your Profits (or Losses) = (opening price of the market – closing price of the market) x stake per AU$0.00010
Your Profits (or Losses) = (AU$1.80378 – AU$1.80703) x £4 per AU$0.00010 stake
Your Profits (or Losses) = -AU$0.00325 x £4 per AU$0.00010
