Gold Margin and Specifications


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 pip value of $10 per 1.0 lot. Gold pip 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 pips P&L Calculation 10 x 0.25 x 20 = $50
