How does Forex
Trading work?

Forex trading is similar to trading shares or futures except that when trading foreign exchange you are buying or selling one currency against another and you do not take delivery of the underlying currency. One of the key advantages Forex has over other financial instruments is that relatively small lot sizes can be traded - lot sizes can be as small as 1000 units (one micro lot). Typically, foreign exchange also involves leverage which in some cases can be as high as 1:3000, which is very different to trading shares where no leverage is involved.

Forex Trading Examples

Selling: EUR/USD
The gross profit on your trade is calculated as follows:

Closing Price
€200,000 x 1.32129 = USD $264,258
Gross Profit on Trade
$2988
Opening the Position
The price of the Euro against the US Dollar (EUR/USD) is 1.33623/1.33624 and you decide to sell 2 standard lots (the equivalent of €200,000) at 1.33623.
Closing the Position
One week later the Euro has fallen against the US Dollar to 1.32128/1.32129 and you decide to take your profit by buying back 2 standard lots at 1.32129.
