Trade Interest Rate Differentials

By selling currencies whose country has a lower interest rate against currencies whose country has a higher interest rate, you can profit from the interest rate differential (known as a carry trade) as well as price appreciation.

That’s like being able to get a frosted cupcake with sprinkles on top! That talks to you! Imagine how delicious that would taste!

Interest Rate Differential Cupcake

Currency crosses offer many pairs with high interest rate differentials that are prime for these types of trades.

AUD/JPY on a steady uptrend due to high interest rate differential

For example, take a look at the nice uptrend on AUD/JPY. If you had a long position on this pair, you would’ve made a hefty profit.

On top of that, the interest rate differential between AUD and JPY was huge. From 2002 to 2007, the Reserve Bank of Australia had raised rates to 6.25% while the BOJ kept their rates at 0%.

That means you made profits off your long position AND the interest rate differential on that trade!

Now that’d be an awesome cash cow right there!

Later on in college (if your brain hasn’t exploded with all this forex knowledge by then), we’ll teach you more about carry trade. We’ll teach you which ones will work and which ones won’t. We’ll even teach you about a lil’ something called risk aversion. But that’s for a later lesson.

 

利用利差进行交易

       卖出低利率国家货币兑高利率国家货币,你可以通过利差以及汇率的变动而获利。

       这就好像你获得了一块上面点缀了零星小糖果的纸杯蛋糕!它在向你问候呢!想象一下,品尝它的滋味是不是特别的美味。

      


       交叉货币对中,有一些货币对具有较高的利差,这些货币对适宜进行套息交易。

       让我们看看澳元/日元的完美上升趋势。如果你持有澳元/日元多头,你的获利将是非常可观的。

       值得注意的是,澳元和日元之间的利差非常巨大。从2002年到2007年,澳洲联储累计将基准利率升至6.25%,而日本央行一直维持利率在近零水平。

       这意味着,你可以同时从做多澳元/日元以及澳元和日元的利差中获利。

       现在,这可是一头巨大的现金牛!

      

       在随后的大学课程中,我们将教你更多有关套息交易的知识,当然,学习这些课程的前提是你的头没有因为学习到如此多的外汇知识而爆炸。我们也将教你有关风险规避的内容,但是,这是稍后课程将讲解的。
