    • 1 lot equals 100,000 of the first named currency on the MetaTrader 4 platform
    • Pip values are calculated in the second named currency
    • Profit is calculated by (sell price – buy price) x contract size
    • Profit is converted to the account currency by the price quoted in the currency/exchange rate

    Forex Example 1 - GBP Account

    A client buys 1 lot of AUD / USD @ 0.9169
    The position is closed @ 0.9179 Profit / Loss is calculated as 0.9179 - 0.9169 x 100,000 = US$100
    The profit / loss is converted to the account currency by the following calculation: 100 / 1.6268 = £61.47

    Forex Example 2 - GBP Account
    A client sells 0.5 lots of EUR / GBP @ 0.8333
    The position is closed @ 0.8403. Profit / Loss is calculated as 0.8333 - 0.8403 x 50,000 = -GBP£350
    The profit / loss is in the correct currency - GBP


    Forex Example 3 - GBP Account
    A client buys 0.5 lots of AUD / JPY @ 77.35
    The position is closed @ 78.20 Profit / Loss is calculated as 78.20 – 77.35 x 50,000 = JPY¥42,500
    The profit / loss is converted to the account currency by the following calculation: 42,500 / 164.510 = £258.34
