Transaction instance

  • A US coffee CFD has a face value of 50,000, a spread of 0.3 cents, a minimum change of 0.05 cents ($0.0005), and a margin requirement of $20000 per contract.

    Customers believe that insufficient coffee supply will cause prices to rise soon. In response to this situation, the customer decided to buy a coffee contract.

    The coffee price is 124.75/05, and the customer buys 4 lots at $125.05. A total of $8000 deposit is required. Customers need a minimum of $2000 deposit per transaction.

    The price of coffee rose to 125.45/75 as scheduled, and the customer responded to this information by closing the position, thus selling four contracts at 125.45. The customer has a profit of 0.4 points in the transaction.

    If the customer buys at 124.75 and sells at 125.45, then the 0.40 profit in US dollars is: 50,000 x ($1.2545 – 1.2505) = $200 per contract. The total customer profit is $800 ($200*4 contract quantity).

    Bid price 125.05 – sale price 125.45 +0.4 cents
    50,000 x ($1.2545 - $1.2505) +$200 per contract
    $200*4 contract quantity + $800 gross profit
    *The above calculation does not include commission fee

    *CFD contracts are based on futures contracts and the quoted price is not affected by the forward day/loan interest rate.
