The table shows the effect of ‘leveraged’ trading: the trader invests USD 100, for a EUR 10,000 contract. Therefore, a small change in the currency exchange rate reflects a much higher change in value.

The Trader may lose up to 100% of the investment (USD 100), but can gain an unlimited profit.

The table also illustrates the value of PIPs. In this deal, every PIP (the fourth decimal digit) results in a profit or loss of USD 1.00 to the trader. So long as the trader gains on this deal, each PIP is worth $1 on a $100 margin leveraged at 1:100.

Limit Orders (reserving a Day-Trading deal)

Some dealing rooms and platforms offer the trader the ability to set a “reserved” rate for a deal, that would “capture”, if and when such a rate occurs in the market, resulting in a Day-Trading deal.

The trader can define the rate he/she wishes, letting the platform do the watching, until (if and when), it appears in the market. easyMarkets does not charge additional fees for Limit Orders. Setting up a Limit Order is very similar to the process described above for Day-Trading. Should the reserved deal not be realized, the funds which were allocated for it will be returned to the trader’s account.
