Gold trading example

Margin calculations

Margin calculation

(100 x price x lot size) / leverage

Example: 100 x 1425.00 x 1.0 = $142500 / 200 = $712.50
Leverage is 200:1 in this example

Gold moves in 0.10 increments with a value of $10 per 1.0 lot. Gold whole increment values can be calculated by multiplying tick value, lot size, and market movement (closing price - open price x 10)

In this example, the position (0.25 lot) was closed at 1440.00 from a 1438.00 open. Market movement = (1440.00 - 1438.00) X 10 = 20 whole increments P&L Calculation 10 x 0.25 x 20 = $50
