As examples of trafficking in foreign currencies
An investor has a margin deposit with Saxo Bank worth 10000 U.S. dollars
The investor expects the U.S. dollar to rise against the Swiss franc and therefore decides to buy USD 2000000 - 2% of his maximum possible exposure at a 1% margin trading in foreign currencies.
Saxo Bank to provide a valuable rate 20-1.5515 The investor buys USD at 1.5520.
Day 1: 2000000 is buying U.S. dollars against Swiss francs = 1.5520 Swiss franc sale in the amount of 3.104 million
Four days later, the dollar rose to 1.5745 Swiss francs, and the investor decides to take his profit.
Upon request, the Saxo Bank offer price for the investor 50-1.5745 of this, the investor sells at 1.5745.
Day 5: 2000000 sell U.S. dollars against 1.5745 Swiss francs = buy 3.149 million Swiss francs.
As the dollar side of the transaction involves a credit and a debit of USD 2000000 USD account will show an investor no change. And the account of the Swiss franc is showing a debit of CHF 3104000 and 3149000 a credit of CHF because of the simplicity of this example and the short time we have disregarded the transaction on the exchange rates that would marginally alter the profit calculation.
This results in a profit of 45000 Swiss francs, or about 28600 U.S. dollars, = 28.6% profit on the deposit of 100000 dollars.
