Tips on Forex

  • 1 CFD FX lot has a notional value of 100,000 
  • Currencies are always traded in pairs
  • The first currency in a pair is known as the 'base currency'
  • The second currency in the pair is known as the 'quote currency'
Example 1


  • If you were to trade EURUSD and you bought, you're buying Euros and selling US Dollars.
  • If you bought 1 CFD lot of EURUSD at a price of 1.1800, you would be buying 100,000 Euros and selling 118,000 US Dollars.
  • If the price of EURUSD moved from 1.1800 to 1.1850, this means you have made 50 pips. After buying 1 CFD Lot, this would result in a profit of $500. However if the price fell to 1.1785, then you have lost 15 pips and made a loss of $150.
Example 2


  • If you were to trade EURGBP and you sold, you're selling Euros and buying Sterling.
  • If you sold 1 CFD lot of EURGBP at price of 0.9000, you would be selling 100,000 Euros and buying 90,000 Sterling.
  • If the price of EURGBP moved to 0.9025, this is a change of 25 pips and a loss of £250. However if the price fell to 0.8940, then you would make a profit of £600.
