Gold Trading Example

Buying XAU/USD

Leverage 1:100

Opening the Position

Opening price of the GOLD against the US Dollar (XAU/USD) is 1250.00

You decide to buy 1 standard lot (the equivalent of 100 ounces) at 1250.00.

Margin required to open the position is 1*100*1250.00*1/100=USD $1250

Closing the Position

Closing Price of the GOLD against the US Dollar (XAU/USD) is 1274.50

One week later the Gold has risen against the USD to 1274.50, you decide to take your profit by closing your buying position

Market movement= 1274.50 – 1250.00 = 2450 ticks (24.5*100)

Gross profit on Trade = USD $ 1*2450 = USD $ 2450
