  • IBR 2 – Contracts for Difference and Margin Forex contracts
    • Is AxiTrader Regulated?
      Contracts for Difference and Margin FX Contracts

      • 2.1 What is foreign exchange?
        Foreign exchange is about exchanging one currency for another. In a foreign exchange transaction one currency can be bought or sold in exchange for another currency. The exchange rate is the price of one currency (the base currency) in terms of the other currency (the term currency) and is the price at which this transaction takes place. For example: if the current exchange rate for the Australian dollar (base currency) against the US dollar (term currency) is AUD/USD 1.04, this means that an Australian dollar is equal to, or can be exchanged for, USD1.04.
      • 2.2 What is a Contract for Difference?
        A contract for difference (CFD) is a financial product that gives the holder an exposure to an underlying asset without giving any proprietary rights in that asset.CFDs have the same legal characteristics as Margin FX Contracts.

      • 2.3 Types of CFDs Issued by Us
        We offer CFDs based on the following Underlying Instruments:

        • gold and silver (Bullion CFDs);
        • commodities (Commodity CFDs);and
        • equity index futures contracts (Index Futures CFDs).

        CFDs will be traded in the currency listed in the AxiCorp Products Schedule Currency for that CFD.

      • 2.4 Opening a CFD
        A CFD Position is opened by either buying (going long) or selling (going short) on a CFD.You go “long” when you buy a CFD in the expectation that the price of the Underlying Instrument to which the CFD is referable will increase, which has the effect that the CFD price will increase.

        You go “short” when you sell a CFD in the expectation that the price of the Underlying Instrument to which the CFD is referable will decline, which has the effect that the CFD price will decline.

        We provide you with a number of different order types to facilitate the opening and closing of long and short Positions.

      • 2.5 Closing a CFD
        You close a CFD by entering into and executing an equal and opposite transaction in the same CFD.If you close a Position, you must cancel any related orders you have placed against that Position. Failure to do so will mean that the related orders remain at risk of execution.

      • 2.6 Nature of Margin FX Contracts and CFDs
        Margin FX Contracts and CFDs are not traded on a licensed financial market, or exchange, but are bilateral agreements between you and AxiCorp, with each party responsible for assessing the credit standing and capacity of the other party before entering into the transaction.If you have a need to purchase the underlying currency, i.e. to enter into a position that is to be settled by exchange of currency, our Margin FX Contracts are not appropriate for you, because they do not involve an exchange of currency at a future point in time.

        However, if you wish to trade in deliverable foreign exchange, either spot or forward, we offer products by way of another Product Disclosure Statement and you should discuss your requirements with one of our representatives.

      • Margin Foreign Exchange trading
      • 2.7 Different to spot and forward trading
        Margin foreign exchange trading with us differs from spot and forward trading in that:

        • it does not involve an exchange of currencies or the sale at a future point in time; and
        • there is ordinarily no pre-determined settlement date.

        Rather, margin foreign exchange trading with us involves taking spot or forward Positions in a foreign currency and, instead of these contracts being settled by exchange of currencies, the Positions are “closed-out”. Closing-out involves entering into an equal and opposite Position with us and generates a profit or a loss which is then settled between us. The resulting profit or loss of the trade is the net result of the difference between the opening and closing exchange rates or prices of each transaction, adjusted for transaction costs.

      • 2.8 Long and Short Positions
        You go “long” when you buy a Margin FX Contract or CFD or place an order to open a Position in the expectation that the price of the Underlying Instrument will increase, which would have the effect that the Position’s price will increase.You go “short” when you sell a Margin FX Contract or CFD or place an order to open a Position in the expectation that the price of the Underlying Instrument will decline, which would have the effect that the Position price will decline. If this occurs, because you have sold a Margin FX Contract or CFD (rather than bought a Margin FX Contract or CFD), you would make a profit if you closed the Position at this point, subject to our fees and charges.

      • 2.9 Example of Margin FX trading
        You are watching the currency market and, whilst you do not have any physical requirement to buy or sell AUD against the USD, you are of the opinion that the AUD will strengthen against the USD over the next few days.So, you can either trade online on our Trading Platform or call our desk and ask our staff for a price for you to buy AUD and sell USD with the intention to close out the trade at some time in the future. You are quoted a AUD/USD rate of 0.7000 and accept that rate. Note that it is your intention that this Position will be closed-out before expiry.

        On the next day the AUD has strengthened against the USD and you call our desk and ask our staff for a price for you to sell AUD and buy USD.

        You are quoted an AUD/USD rate of 1.04.

        Day 1: Buy AUD 100,000 @ 1.04 against USD
        USD value = 104,000

        Day 2: Sell AUD 100,000 @ 1.05 against USD
        USD value = 105,000

        Net trading profit: = USD 1,000 gross profit (excluding costs).

        * Please note these rates are used for illustrative purposes only and are not meant to be taken as an actual conversion rate that is available in the market at this time.

        * See also IBR 3.

    • 3.1 – Examples of Going Long in Margin FX
      • Example of Going Long and making a profit on Margin FX Contracts
        You opened an account with AxiCorp and your account has an opening balance of AUD20,000 and you believe that the price of the Australian Dollar (AUD) is going to appreciate against the US Dollar (USD) which is currently at 0.9280. You decide to buy AUD 100,000 against USD at the current price.
        DAY ONE

        The price of AUDUSD spot is 0.92780 (bid price)/0.92800 (offer price) N/A Opening Balance AUD 20,000
        You buy AUD100,000 at the exchange rate of 0.92800
        You pay no commission for this trade. AxiCorp charges no commission for trading Margin FX
        Your Margin Requirement for this trade is 1% of the amount tradedTherefore, your Margin Requirement to open this Position is AUD 1,000 AUD 100,000 x 1% = AUD 1,000 Initial Margin Requirement AUD 1,000
        Your Free Equity is Total Equity less your Margin Requirement AUD 20,000 – 1,000 = AUD 19,000 Free Equity AUD 19,000
        You decide to hold the Position overnight. The closing price of AUDUSD for the day was 0.92800, the same as your purchase price.Because you have decided to hold your Position overnight you will incur a daily Rollover Charge, which is calculated according to the overnight swap rate in the interbank market, which fluctuates daily and represents the difference between the interest differential of the two currency pairs involved. The Rollover Rate is variable according to currency pairs and calculated as set out in clause 13.6 of our Client Agreement.
        DAY TWO
        The Next Day Calculation Account Display
        A sell trade at 0.92800 and simultaneously a buy trade at 0.927905 will be generated to reflect the Rollover Charge.As the AUD is the higher yielding currency and you are long AUD, so your account is credited with USD 9.50 Daily Rollover Charge(0.92800 – 0.927905) x 100000 = USD 9.50

        This amount will be booked in your base currency, which is AUD at 0.92800 = AUD 10.24

        Total Equity will be

        AUD 20,000.00 + 10.24 = AUD 20,010.24

        Total Equity AUD 20,010.24
        Your open Position will remain at the historical purchase price of 0.9280This way you can keep track of your original purchase price at all times
        Let say, at 11:30 a.m., the AUD has moved up to 0.93300 after the RBA has indicated that further interest rate hike is necessary to curb inflation.Your Position is marked to market which will change your account balance. Unrealised Profit(0.93300 – 0.92800) x 100000 = USD 500

        This amount will be booked in your AUD base currency at the rate of 0.93300 = AUD 535.91

        New Equity Balance

        AUD 20,010.24 + 535.91 = AUD 20,546.15

        Total Equity AUD 20,546.15
        Your Margin Requirement remains at AUD 1,000 AUD 100,000 x 1% = AUD 1,000 Margin Requirement AUD 1,000
        Your Free Equity is Total Equity less your Margin Requirement AUD 20,546.15 – 1,000 = AUD 19,546.15 Free Equity AUD 19,546.15
        At 4 p.m. you decided to close your Position as AUD has appreciated to 0.9350
        Closing the Position Calculation Account Display
        You sell AUDUSD100,000 at bid price of 0.93500 to close your PositionYou pay no commission for this trade. AxiCorp charges no commission for Margin FX trading N/A N/A N/A
        Realised Profit (0.93500 – 0.92800) x 100000 = USD 700.00 (AUD 748.66)New Balance

        AUD 20,010.24 + 748.66 = AUD 20,758.90

        Total Equity AUD 20,758.90
        Initial Margin Requirement will be zero because you have closed your Position N/A Margin Requirement AUD 0.00
        Free Equity is your Total Equity less Margin Requirement AUD 20,758.90 – 0.0 = AUD 20,758.90 Free Equity AUD 20,758.90
        In this example you were correct in predicting the AUD will appreciate against the USD. After daily rollover charge for one day you would have made AUD 758.90 profit. However, if your prediction was wrong and the price had moved in the opposite direction by an equal amount, your loss would have been AUD 749.80. Please see the example below for how this loss is calculated.
