FBAR for USForex (international money transfer and currency converter business)???
Hello, I have an account with USForex. They provide "international money transfer services" and are registered as a "Money Service Business" and "licensed as a money transmitter". I never actually used USForex to convert or transmit any money, but my account is sitting with them and still 'open' and they have all of my info, including my name, address, and SSN. I already have foreign bank accounts and filed an FBAR for them for last year, but I didn't at the time think it was necessary to mention my USForex account. Did I need to include my USForex account in the FBAR FinCEN 114 filing? Here is a little more info on what USForex is and my situation: According to their website USForex is a Delaware company, but USForex is a wholly owned of OzForex, which is a Australian company To make matters a little more confusing, I originally tried to open an OzForex.com.au account but I'm only getting emails from USForex, I called them up and they told me that my account is on the USForex.com platform because I'm a US person and that a OzForex account doesn't exist. FBAR requires you to file: (1) Bank account, (2) Securities account (3) Other financial account. I'm worried it meets the definition of (3) Other financial account:
(3) Other financial account. The term “other financial account” means— (i) An account with a person that is in the business of accepting deposits as a financial agency; (ii) An account that is an insurance or annuity policy with a cash value; (iii) An account with a person that acts as a broker or dealer for futures or options transactions in any commodity on or subject to the rules of a commodity exchange or association; or
Also, because of the way USForex works, it allows you to convert currency only if a strike price is met (e.g. if the dollar ever drops below this amount, do a conversion), does that technically meet (iii)? Thanks for any input.
ATO Australian tax treatment for options trades 🇦🇺
I am posting this as I hope it will help other Australian options traders trading in US options with their tax treatment for ATO (Australian Tax Office) purposes. The ATO provides very little guidance on tax treatment for options trading and I had to do a lot of digging to get to this point. I welcome any feedback on this post.
The Deloitte Report from 2011
My initial research led me to this comprehensive Deloitte report from 2011 which is hosted on the ASX website. I've been through this document about 20 times and although it's a great report to understand how different scenarios apply, it's still really hard to find out what's changed since 2011. I am mainly relating myself to the scenario of being an individual and non-sole trader (no business set up) for my trading. I think this will apply to many others here too. According to that document, there isn't much guidance on what happens when you're an options premium seller and close positions before they expire. Note that the ATO sometimes uses the term "ETO" (Exchange Traded Option) to discuss what we're talking about here with options trading. Also note: The ATO discusses the separate Capital Gains Tax ("CGT") events that occur in each scenario in some of their documents. A CGT event will then determine what tax treatment gets applied if you don't know much about capital gains in Australia.
ATO Request for Advice
Since the Deloitte report didn't answer my questions, I eventually ended up contacting the ATO with a request for advice and tried to explain my scenario: I'm an Australian resident for tax purposes,I'm trading with tastyworks in $USD, I'm primarily a premium seller and I don't have it set up with any business/company/trust etc. In effect, I have a rough idea that I'm looking at capital gains tax but I wanted to fully understand how it worked. Initially the ATO respondent didn't understand what I was talking about when I said that I was selling a position first and buying it to close. According to the laws, there is no example of this given anywhere because it is always assumed in ATO examples that you buy a position and sell it. Why? I have no idea. I sent a follow up request with even more detail to the ATO. I think (hope) they understood what I meant now after explaining what an options premium seller is!
First, I have to consider translating my $USD to Australian dollars. How do we treat that? FX Translation If the premium from selling the options contract is received in $USD, do I convert it to $AUD on that day it is received? ATO response:
Subsection 960-50(6), Item 5 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997) states the amount should be translated at the time of the transaction or event for the purposes of the Capital Gains Tax provisions. For the purpose of granting an option to an entity, the time of the event is when you grant the option (subsection 104-20(2) ITAA 1997).
This is a very detailed response which even refers to the level of which section in the law it is coming from. I now know that I need to translate my trades from $USD to $AUD according to the RBA's translation rates for every single trade. But what about gains or losses on translation? There is one major rule that overrides FX gains and losses after digging deeper. The ATO has a "$250k balance election". This will probably apply to a lot of people trading in balances below $250k a lot of the FX rules don't apply. It states:
However, the $250,000 balance election broadly enables you to disregard certain foreign currency gains and losses on certain foreign currency denominated bank accounts and credit card accounts (called qualifying forex accounts) with balances below a specified limit.
Therefore, I'm all good disregarding FX gains and losses! I just need to ensure I translate my trades on the day they occurred. It's a bit of extra admin to do unfortunately, but it is what it is.
This is the scenario where we SELL a position first, collect premium, and close the position by making an opposite BUY order. Selling a naked PUT, for example. What happens when you open the position? ATO Response:
The option is grantedCGT event D2 happens when a taxpayer grants an option. The time of the event is when the option is granted. The capital gain or loss arising is the difference between the capital proceeds and the expenditure incurred to grant the option.
This seems straight forward. We collect premium and record a capital gain. What happens when you close the position? ATO Response:
Closing out an optionThe establishment of an ETO contract is referred to as opening a position (ASX Explanatory Booklet 'Understanding Options Trading'). A person who writes (sells) a call or put option may close out their position by taking (buying) an identical call or put option in the same series. This is referred to as the close-out of an option or the closing-out of an opening position. CGT event C2 happens when a taxpayer's ownership of an intangible CGT asset ends. Paragraph 104-25(1)(a) of the ITAA 1997 provides that ownership of an intangible CGT asset ends by cancellation, surrender, or release or similar means. CGT event C2 therefore happens to a taxpayer when their position under an ETO is closed out where the close-out results in the cancellation, release or discharge of the ETO. Under subsection 104-25(3) of the ITAA 1997 you make a capital gain from CGT event C2 if the capital proceeds from the ending are more than the assets cost base. You make a capital loss if those capital proceeds are less than the assets reduced cost base. Both CGT events (being D2 upon granting the option and C2 upon adopting the close out position) must be accounted for if applicable to a situation.
My take on this is that the BUY position that cancels out your SELL position will most often simply realise a capital loss (the entire portion of your BUY position). In effect, it 'cancels out' your original premium sold, but it's not recorded that way, it's recorded as two separate CGT events - your capital gain from CGT event D2 (SELL position), then, your capital loss from CGT event C2 (BUY position) is also recorded.In effect, they net each other out, but you don't record them as a 'netted out' number-you record them separately. From what I understand, if you were trading as a sole tradecompany then you would record them as a netted out capital gain or loss, because the trades would be classified as trading stock but not in our case here as an individual person trading options. The example I've written below should hopefully make that clearer. EXAMPLE: Trade on 1 July 2020: Open position
SELL -1 SPY 85 PUT, exp 30 August 2020
Collect Premium USD$1 per unit, and brokerage USD$5
= USD$100 premium collected, minus USD$5
= Net amount of USD$95 collected
FX Translation rate on the date of the trade: AUD $1.00 = $USD 0.70
Net Premium Collected in $AUD
= USD$95 x (1/.7)
CGT Event D2 triggered and a capital gain of $135.71 is recorded
Trade on 15 July 2020: Close position
BUY 1 SPY 85 PUT, exp 30 August 2020
Pay Premium $0.50 per unit, and brokerage $5
= $50 premium paid, plus $5
= Net amount of USD$55 paid
FX Translation rate on the date of the trade: AUD $1.00 = $USD 0.60
Net Premium Collected in $AUD
= USD$55 x (1/.6)
CGT Event C2 triggered and a capital loss of $91.66 is recorded
We can see from this simple example that even though you made a gain on those trades, you still have to record the transactions separately, as first a gain, then as a loss. Note that it is not just a matter of netting off the value of the net profit collected and converting the profit to $AUD because the exchange rate will be different on the date of the opening trade and on the date of the closing trade we have to record them separately. What if you don't close the position and the options are exercised? ATO Response:
The option is granted and then the option is exercisedUnder subsection 104-40(5) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997) the capital gain or loss from the CGT event D2 is disregarded if the option is exercised. Subsection 134-1(1), item 1, of the ITAA 1997 refers to the consequences for the grantor of the exercise of the option. Where the option binds the grantor to dispose of a CGT asset section 116-65 of the ITAA 1997 applies to the transaction. Subsection 116-65(2) of the ITAA 1997 provides that the capital proceeds from the grant or disposal of the shares (CGT asset) include any payment received for granting the option. The disposal of the shares is a CGT event A1 which occurs under subsection 104-10(3) of the ITAA 1997 when the contract for disposal is entered into. You would still make a capital gain at the happening of the CGT event D2 in the year the event occurs (the time the option is granted). That capital gain is disregarded when the option is exercised. Where the option is exercised in the subsequent tax year, the CGT event D2 gain is disregarded at that point. An amendment may be necessary to remove the gain previously included in taxable income for the year in which the CGT event D2 occurred.
This scenario is pretty unlikely - for me personally I never hold positions to expiration, but it is nice to know what happens with the tax treatment if it ultimately does come to that.
What about the scenario when you want to BUY some options first, then SELL that position and close it later? Buying a CALL, for example. This case is what the ATO originally thought my request was about before I clarified with them. They stated:
When you buy an ETO, you acquire an asset (the ETO) for the amount paid for it (that is, the premium) plus any additional costs such as brokerage fees and the Australian Clearing House (ACH) fee. These costs together form the cost base of the ETO (section 109-5 of the ITAA 1997). On the close out of the position, you make a capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the cost base of the ETO and the amount received on its expiry or termination (subsection 104-25(3) of the ITAA 1997). The capital gain or loss is calculated on each parcel of options.
So it seems it is far easier to record debit trades for tax purposes. It is easier for the tax office to see that you open a position by buying it, and close it by selling it. And in that case you net off the total after selling it. This is very similar to a trading shares and the CGT treatment is in effect very similar (the main difference is that it is not coming under CGT event A1 because there is no asset to dispose of, like in a shares or property trade).
Other ATO Info (FYI)
The ATO also referred me to the following documents. They relate to some 'decisions' that they made from super funds but the same principles apply to individuals they said.
The ATO’s Interpretative Decision in relation to the tax treatment of premiums payable and receivable for exchange traded options can be found on the links below. Please note that the interpretative decisions below are in relation to self-managed superannuation funds but the same principles would apply in your situation [as an individual taxpayer, not as a super fund].
Key quote from this decision: CGT Event D2will apply on the writing of an ETO by the Fund. The Fund as grantor of the option will make a capital gain (or loss) of the difference between the capital proceeds (that is, the premium receivable) and the cost of granting the option (for example, brokerage fees) at the time the option is granted
My take on this is that you will realise a capital gain on issuing of the selling position. I don't see how you could realise a capital loss in that scenario? Or maybe if you sell a position and the brokerage is so high that it outweighs the premium received (a dumb trade) then that would be a capital loss (a rare scenario).
Key quote from decision: When the Fund opens a position by buying an ETO, no immediate taxation consequences arise.CGT Event C2will happen to the Fund when its position under an ETO is closed out where the close-out results in the cancellation, release or discharge of the ETO
Don't forget to declare your trades on your tax return and keep a nice spreadsheet
Keep track of the exchange rates for each day you make a trade. You could do as you go and check the RBA exchange rates website for the daily number, or just do it all at once at the end of the financial year
Finally - I recommend ensuring that you save a portion of your income to pay the capital gains tax at the end of the year so you don't have to withdraw it from your portfolio and pay exchange rate fees to convert it back to Australian dollars. It will depend on your marginal tax rate what that percentage will work out to be in the end.
Các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tưlà những đồng nào? Hiện nay, sự phát triển của công nghệ kỹ thuật số đã làm thay đổi thế giới tiền tệ. Đặc biệt nổi bật trong đó chính là tiền ảo hay còn gọi là tiền điện tử. Với sự phát triển mạnh mẽ đó thì hiện nay trên toàn cầu đã gần 7.460 loại tiền ảo. Vậy làm thế nào để chọn đượccác đồng tiền ảo tiềm năngđáng đầu tư? Hiểu rõ được tâm lý của những người tham gia thị trường tiền ảo nên tôi đã viết bài này để chia sẻ kinh nghiệm của mình tới các bạn. Nào chúng ta hãy bắt đầu vào vấn đề chính thôi!
Cách chọn các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư
Để chọn được các đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng thì chúng ta cần lưu ý tới những vấn đề xoay quanh ảnh hưởng đến nó. Những điều này thực sự không đơn giản bởi vì ngoài công nghệ Blockchain đứng đằng sau, còn có rất nhiều yếu tố tác động khác nữa. Dưới đây là những chia sẻ của tôi về các yếu tố để đánh giá các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư nhé! 📷 Cách chọn các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư
Yếu tố cộng đồng
Một trong những yếu tố quan trọng trong việc lựa chọn các đồng sàn tiền ảo nên đầu tư đấy chính là yếu tố về cộng đồng. Nếu một đồng tiền ảo có được cộng đồng sử dụng đông đảo và năng động thì chính là nền tảng cho sự phát triển ở tương lai. Khi mức độ phủ sóng lớn thì sẽ thu hút được rất nhiều nhà đầu tư, từ đó giá trị đồng tiền cũng tăng lên. Tính chất cung – cầu của của đồng coin cũng sẽ tăng lên nếu có được một cộng đồng đông đảo.
Như vậy, theo như những gì tôi đã phân tích và chia sẻ ở trên thì các đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng được đánh giá qua rất nhiều yếu tố. Bạn có thể tham khảo những gì tôi chia sẻ và chọn lựa cho bản thân mình các đồng tiền sàn tiền ảo tốt nhất nên đầu tư. Bây giờ chúng ta hãy đi qua phần những đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư nhé!
So với thị trường chứng khoán và Forex thì các đồng tiền ảo có nguồn cung tương đối giới hạn vì không thể phát hành thêm hoặc in thêm tiền. Tuy nhiên, bạn nên lưu ý một điều rằng không phải tất cả các đồng tiền ảo đều giới hạn. Khị đồng coin trở nên giới hạn thì nó sẽ khan hiếm điều này đồng nghĩa với việc giá trị đồng tiền ảo sẽ khó bị lạm phát hơn.
Top 3 các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư
Trong vô vàn các đồng tiền ảo có mặt trên thị trường hiện nay. Thì hôm nay tôi sẽ chia sẻ cho các bạn về top 3 các đồng sàn tiền ảo uy tín nên đầu tư nhé!
Tiền ảo - Ethereum (ETH)
Sau Bitcoin thì Ethereum cũng được đánh giá là một trong các đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng. Ethereum được tạo ra năm 2015, mới trải qua 5 năm trên thị trường tiền ảo nhưng nó đã chứng tỏ được cho mọi người thấy sự lớn mạnh và tiềm năng. 📷 Ethereum đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng và nên đầu tư
- Ethereum có quy lớn trong hệ sinh thái dApp. Tính đến thời điểm hiện nay đã có đến 250.000 nhà phát triển sử dụng Ethereum để bắt đầu cho các dự án hợp đồng thông minh của mình. - Ethereum là một đồng tiền ảo có sự hỗ trợ của các nhà đầu tư. - Ethereum đã có một kế hoạch cho tương lai rõ ràng. Nó luôn là người đi đầu trong việc đổi mới công nghiệp và các kế hoạch của Ethereum không chỉ trong blockchain mà còn trong cộng đồng công nghệ.
- Đối với những người mới bắt đầu thì Ethereum có thể sẽ khó khăn hơn vì nó có rất ít tài liệu hướng dẫn. - Thường xuyên nâng cấp phiên bản, nâng cấp công nghệ bất cứ lúc nào. Các nhà phát triển trên nền tảng Ethereum sẽ phải thường xuyên thay đổi từ nền tảng cũ qua nền tảng mới. Điều này gây mất thời gian và khiến cá nhà phát triển luôn bận rộn. - Ethereum sử dụng ngôn ngữ lập trình không phổ biến. Nhưng bạn không cần quá lo lắng về những điều hạn chế này. Bởi vì, dù có sao đi nữa thì tôi cũng chắc chắn một điều rằng Ethereum là một trong các đồng tiền ảo đáng đầu tư. Ethereum đã được chứng minh là một Altcoin thành công nhất cho đến thời điểm hiện tại. Trong tương lai Ethereum cũng dự kiến sẽ tiếp tục phát triển và phổ biến hơn nữa.
Tiền ảo - Litecoin (LTC)
Litecoin là đồng tiền ảo được phát hành vào năm 2011 dựa trên nền tảng mã nguồn mở Github. Nó cũng chính là phiên bản sửa đổi từ Bitcoin. 📷 Litecoin một trong các đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng
- Litecoin là đồng tiền ảo có mã nguồn mở nên rất dễ dàng cập nhật phần mềm để đáp ứng nhu cầu thay đổi khi thị trường biến động. - Litecoin còn có khả năng mở rộng. Điều này giúp quá trình giao dịch sẽ diễn ra nhanh hơn. - Litecoin có phí giao dịch thấp hơn so với những đồng tiền điện tử khác. Điều này khiến cho nó trở thành một trong các đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng và đáng đầu tư. Việc đào Litecoin còn áp dụng cho những người không có chuyên môn. Nó không giống như Bitcoin chỉ dành cho những thợ mỏ chuyên nghiệp.
Mặc dù nó hiệu quả và nhanh hơn Bitcoin nhưng tính độc đáo và mới mẻ của nó đã giảm dần với bản cập nhật của Bitcoin và một số tiền điện tử khác. Dù là Bitcoin, Ethereum hay Litecoin thì chúng đều là các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư và tiềm năng. Vậy nên, bạn có thể chọn một trong 3 đồng tiền ảo này để tham gia đầu tư. Mỗi đồng tiền ảo sẽ có ưu điểm và nhược điểm riêng. Nếu bạn khai thác được điểm mạnh và hạn chế được điểm yếu của nó thì chắc chắn bạn sẽ đầu tư thành công.
Tiền ảo - Bitcoin (BTC)
Khi nhắc đến thị trường tiền ảo chúng ta sẽ nghĩ ngay tới Bitcoin. Bitcoin hiện đang đứng ở vị trí số 1 trong danh sách các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư hiện nay, được tất cả các sàn tiền ảo cho phép giao dịch. Kể từ khi phát hành năm 2008, Bitcoin đã trở thành đồng tiền ảo có vốn hóa thị trường, khối lượng giao dịch cao nhất thị trường. 📷 Bitcoin một trong các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư
- Mặc dù cũng có rất nhiều biến động, nhưng Bitcoin là một trong các đồng tiền ảo ổn định nhất. Bởi vì, rất khó để có thể thao túng giao dịch Bitcoin bởi một cá nhân hay tổ chức đơn lẻ, việc này đòi hỏi phải có rất nhiều tiền. - Bitcoin có tính chất khan hiếm và hữu dụng. Bitcoin chỉ có 21 triệu Bitcoin, khi thời gian trôi qua, việc đào bitcoin sẽ trở nên khan hiếm và khó hơn. Điều này sẽ làm co cầu tăng – cung giảm từ đó giá sẽ tăng. - Như tôi đã nói thì khi nhắc đến tiền ảo, tiền điện tử người ta sẽ biết đến Bitcoin. Sự nhận diện thương hiệu về Bitcoin hiện tại rất tốt. So với những đồng tiền điện tử khác thì Bitcoin tính thanh khoản cao nhất. - Bạn có thể dùng Bitcoin để thanh toán ở trên toàn cầu. Bạn có thể xem được số Bitcoin đang lưu hành, số Bitcoin bạn đang nắm giữ. Không một ngân hàng nào có thể ngăn cản việc giao dịch của bạn bởi vì Bitcoin có thể gửi được từ nơi này qua nơi khác trên phạm vi toàn cầu.
- Phí giao dịch Bitcoin sẽ có giá cao hơn so với các đồng tiền khác vì nhu cầu sử dụng ngày càng tang. Hệ thống giao dịch Bitcoin chỉ xử lý 7 giao dịch trên một giây, hoạt đồng này diễn ra chậm và tốn thời gian. - Việc sử dụng Bitcoin còn phụ thuộc vào tính khả dụng của internet - Bitcoin là đồng tiền ảo có chạm đến ranh giới của quyền hạn chính phủ, ngân hàng vậy nên Bitcoin có thể gặp nhiều sự phản đối của chính phủ và xã hội. Theo tôi thấy thì mặc dù có một số hạn chế, nhược điểm nhưng Bitcoin vẫn luôn là đồng tiền ảo tiềm năng và một trong các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư nhất.
Sau những chia sẻ của tôi về cách chọn, và top 3các đồng tiền ảo nên đầu tư hiện nay. Thì bạn đã có thể chọn cho mình một hay nhiều đồng tiền để theo đuổi hay chưa? Hãy để lại những lời bình luận hoặc kinh nghiệm cá nhân cho những người chung lý tưởng cùng tham khảo nhé! Xem thêm tại sàn tiền ảo uy tín để không bỏ lỡ bất kỳ thông tin nào về tiền ảo

Will Aussie repeat the hat trick? Forecast as of 03.11.2020
The second quarter is likely to be the same as the second one. However, the disaster is not going to be so dramatic. If so, we have a pattern to trade the AUDUSD. Let us discuss the Australian dollar outlook and make up a trading plan.
Monthly Australian dollar fundamental analysis
What doesn't kill makes one stronger. The RBA’s monetary expansion should have crashed the Australian dollar. RBA not only cut the cash rate down to the all-time low of 0.1% but also boosted the purchases of assets with a maturity of 5-10 years within QE by AU$100 billion. The RBA has become one of the first to react to the second pandemic wave. However, the AUDUSD, instead of falling, surged up to the bottom of figure 71. Bloomberg experts anticipate such measures of the regulator, and the time for maneuver was not right. It is not wise to ease monetary policy on the day of the US presidential election, is it? According to Philip Lowe, the increase of the QE size will support economic recovery amid lower costs of funding and exchange rate, as well as higher assets’ price than it would be in the opposite case. RBA must have tried to improve financial conditions, as the Fed did. It was one of the reasons for the US economic growth in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, the US GDP should face a downturn because of the difficult epidemiological situation. Australia, on the contrary, has coped with the coronavirus through a strict lockdown in Victoria. So, Australia’s GDP can well go up.
Dynamics of COVID-19 cases in Australia

The forecast for the unemployment peak has been cut from 10% to 8%. The core inflation will grow by 1% in 2021, and by 1.5% in 2022. In addition to the domestic positive factors, foreign news also supports Aussie. Despite the disputes between Australia and China, which imposed tariffs on Australian barley, launched an anti-dumping investigation into Australian wine, and suspended imports of coal and lobsters from Australia, I believe that the trade relationships will be improved. China is the largest market for Australia. China’s economic growth by 1.9%, according to the IMF forecast, will support the AUDUSD bulls. Based on the yuan price changes, the AUDUSD looks undervalued.
In general, market sentiment indicates that the fourth quarter for the global economy will be similar to the second one, although the disaster scale will be smaller. If so, we have a pattern to trade the Aussie. In late March, I recommended buying the Australian dollar in the range of $0.59-$0.62 amid the expectations of the V-shaped recovery of China’s economy, and this trading idea was winning. Now, there is another chance to repeat the hat trick provided that Joe Biden wins the election. Biden also promises to attack China for its economic and human rights violations, the US-China relations are going to improve. As a result, the entire Pacific region will benefit. Australia, with its successful COVID-19 strategy, is no exception. If Biden wins, buy the AUDUSD with targets at 0.729 and 0.733.

The million dollar question – Why Consider Options Trading
With so many alternative ways of investing in markets, these days, working out which is right for you, can be more challenging than ever. While some areas, such as CFD’s have become fashionable, as we all know, fashion lasts just a season at best! Options, however, are now approaching their 40th Anniversary on the Australian Stock Market – they aren’t fashion, they are style, and real style never dates!
What are some of the key benefits of trading options?
More than any single investment vehicle, options provide flexibility. By that, I mean you can have the potential to profit from a whole range of market conditions – Up, Down, Sideways, Extremely Volatile, not volatile and frankly, no other investment vehicle can offer this kind of opportunity, period! Options can be used to manage risk, or to protect and hedge, or to generate income, or to exploit market moves for leveraged capital gain, or to profit from no move in the market – again – no other investment vehicle is able to offer this!! Perhaps most importantly, for many, they bring leverage to the table in what is a potentially far safer way than other instruments. Specifically, with instruments such as Forex, Margin Lending, CFDs or Futures, it is possible to lose more money than you put down. In other words you become the victim of a margin call. With a bought option this is simply not possible – you cannot lose more than you put in.
What about security?
Options are what is known as an Exchange Traded Instrument or ETO for short. This means that all trades are cleared out through a regulated exchange, be that the ASX in Australia, or in the US, the Nasdaq for example. By trading through an exchange there is an enormous safety net. That safety net is zero counterparty risk. Because all trades are cleared through an exchange, a process called Novation means that if the other person or broking firm on the other side of the transaction is unable to settle, fails financial or has no money, your position is guaranteed by the Exchange themselves, who stand behind the trade. While you may not necessarily appreciate the significance of this, it is huge! By contrast, trading on CFDs or Forex are Over The Counter or OTC products where, as an investor, you are not protected by the Exchange, to effectively guarantee the other side of the trade. In short, if the counterparty fails, you lose your money… Trust me, in today’s market this is critically important and hence why we love Options.
Are there risks with Options trading?
Yes there are but in the majority of cases, these risks can be mitigated. Specifically there are strategies that are lower risk, and others that are higher. As a result, learning which strategies best fit for you and your circumstances, is an important and often missed step. For example, “Naked” or “Sold only” positions in the options market can be extremely risky, hence we encourage our clients to avoid these like the plague! That is of course, until they have built up a good level of expertise. Instead, we far prefer lower risk strategies that have the ability to more consistently offer a steady return.

Qu'est-ce que le Forex? Le Forex, également identifié comme le trading de devises, de devises ou de devises, est un marché mondial décentralisé sur lequel les devises du monde entier se négocient. Le marché des changes est le plus grand marché liquide au monde avec un volume de trading quotidien moyen supérieur à 5 billions de dollars. Tous les marchés boursiers mondiaux ne s’en approchent même pas. Cependant, qu'est-ce que cela signifie pour vous? Examinez de plus près le trading forex et vous constaterez peut-être que certaines opportunités de trading intéressantes ne sont pas disponibles avec d'autres investissements. Transaction Forex: tout est dans l'échange Si vous avez déjà tourné à l'étranger, vous avez effectué une transaction sur le forex. Faites un voyage en Belgique et vous convertissez vos livres sterling en euros. Lorsque vous faites cela, le taux de change entre les deux devises, basé sur l'offre et la demande, détermine combien d'euros vous obtenez pour vos livres sterling. De plus, le taux de change varie à l'infini. Une seule livre britannique lundi pourrait vous rapporter 1,19 euro. Le mardi, 1,20 euros. Ce petit changement peut ne pas sembler important. Cependant, pensez-y à plus grande échelle. Une grande entreprise internationale peut avoir besoin de payer des employés à l'étranger, imaginez ce que cela pourrait faire pour le résultat net si, comme dans l'exemple ci-dessus, le simple échange d'une devise contre une autre vous coûte plus cher selon le moment où vous le faites? Ces quelques centimes s'additionnent rapidement. Dans les deux cas, en tant que touriste, voyageur ou propriétaire d'entreprise, vous voudrez peut-être conserver votre argent jusqu'à ce que le taux de change soit plus favorable. Exemple de société Forex: Spark Global Limited Qu'est-ce que Spark Global LTD? Spark Global LTD, connue sous le nom de SGL is Global Broker, est une communauté de change qui utilise le système Meta Trader 5 pour fournir aux investisseurs des services de négociation d'ordres de copie.

Aussie goes against the wind. Forecast as of 05.10.2020
Monthly Australian dollar fundamental analysis
Hope for the best but do the rest. Although the major drivers of the AUDUSD 30% rally up from the March low have been the rapid recovery of China’s economy and the increase in the global risk appetite, the Australian dollar has domestic drivers as well. Australia efficiently manages the pandemic, and the government is willing to expand the fiscal stimulus. Australia’s Treasurer Josh Frydenberg is willing to provide money until the labor market returns to the full employment state. It is about the unemployment rate of 5%. The current unemployment rate is 6.8%, and it may grow to 8%-10%. It will hardly drop back to 5% before 2022. Investors expect the Treasury to boost the fiscal stimulus. As a result, the net debt burden will increase to AU$712 billion or to 38% of the GDP. At the same time, the national debt ceiling will be increased above AU$1.1 trillion, and the income tax hike, planned for 2022, will be delayed. In the USA, the national debt exceeds 100% of GDP, in the euro-area, it is close to 100%, the Japanese government debt is more than 200%. Canberra can afford additional stimulus. Besides, the expansion of government bonds issue will support the capital inflow in Australia and strengthen the Aussie. Australia’s government bond rates are the highest among the countries issuing the G10 currencies.

That is the reason for the AUD correlation with the US stock indices. The turmoil in the S&P 500 market ahead of the US presidential election will suggest the AUDUSD consolidation.

Source: Trading Economics In addition to the size of the additional fiscal stimulus, investors are focused on the RBA's willingness to expand the volume of monetary support. In September, the RBA officials discussed such measures as the interest-rate cut down to 0.1%, purchasing bonds with longer maturities than currently under QE, negative borrowing costs, and even FX interventions. The latter two options are aggressive, and the regulator will hardly resort to such measures. But it is likely to cut the interest rate by 12 basis points. The derivatives market suggests it will happen already this year.
Expectations of monetary expansion is a bearish factor for the AUD. However, I don’t think the RBA will do it in October. It is likely to leave the door open for the interest rate cut in the future and set the Aussie bulls back using verbal interventions. The RBA will hardly turn the uptrend down, so, its dovish stance will give a chance to buy the pair of the price fall. Following ht consolidation in the range of 0.695-0.735, the AUDUSD is likely to continue its rally up to 0.76 and 0.79.

AUD/USD forecast: Aussie wants to keep the party going
Fundamental Australian dollar forecast for today
Are the AUD/USD growth drivers exhausted?
In the second quarter, the Australian economy encountered the deepest downturn since the records started in 1959. Australia’s GDP contracted by 7% Q-o-Q and by 6.3% Y-o-Y. The RBA cut the interest rate to the record lo. The central bank has also bought AU$60 since March amid the QE program. The Aussie should have dropped in value, but the AUD/USD rate has been 32% up since the low hit in March. Doesn’t the major rule of the fundamental analysis “strong economy – strong currency” work here? Now, it perfectly works! The matter is that everything is relative in Forex! A drop by 6.3% in Australian growth is nothing compared to the US GDP contraction by 32%. AUS$60 billion is very little compared with the trillions of dollars in the USA. In Australia, there are less than 30,000 of coronavirus cases, while there are more than six million of COVID-19 cases in the USA. Australia has managed the pandemic better than many other advanced economies, the economy is not critically weak, the RBA yield control policy allows it not to waste the monetary tools. Besides, China supports Australia’s foreign trade.

Source: Bloomberg China is the largest market for Australian exports. Although the diplomatic relations between the two countries are tense, after Canberra accused China of COVID-19 laboratory origins, the trade relations are good. Since the beginning of the year, Australia’s exports to China have increased by 75% compared to the same period in 2016, when the last official meeting of the countries’ leaders took place. The core of the China-Australia trade is iron ore. Over the past twelve months, China has imported 700 million tons of iron ore from Australia. It is twice as much as it was in 2010 when the diplomatic relations between Australia and China were much better.

Source: Bloomberg Therefore, the AUD/USD uptrend is strong for several reasons. Australia’s economy is stronger compared to others, China supports Australia’s foreign trade, the Fed’s monetary expansion is unprecedented, which weakens the US dollar. The matter is whether the major bullish drivers have exhausted? Will the Aussie continue its rally? The analysts polled by Reuters believe the AUD/USD uptrend should slow down. The see the pair trading at 0.72 in one and three months. In six and twelve months, the exchange rate will be at 0.73 and 0.74, accordingly. These levels are close to the current one, which suggests a long consolidation period. In my opinion, it is still relevant to buy the Aussie. China has averted a new round of trade war with the US. The Australian government is working on the income tax reduction bill, which should support GDP growth. The greenback’s’ long-term outlook remains bearish. So, I recommend entering the AUD/USD longs if Australia’s job report for August is positive. The middle-term targets are at 0.75 and 0.763.
