AUD/JPY Contract Newbie

Guest CKau


Hi,  I am a complete Newbie to day trading.  I have read the various help guides, but I cannot understand the size & amounts involved in buying/selling an AUD/JPY forex contract.


I am an Australian based user.


If I buy 1 contract of AUD/JPY what is the notional amount I have invested in AUD and JPY?  For instance, if I bought 1 contract at 80.00, have I bought JPY100 which is AUD80?  I understand 1 pip is the 2nd decimal place.   So if the price went to 80.01, have I made JPY1 which is AUD$0.8.


I'm confused.  Part of the confusion is I know that 100JPY is about 80 australian cents, but when it comes to the way things are quoted and contract sizes, I get really confused.


AUD with GBP, EUR, USD seems to be easier to understand, but I cannot get my head around JPY.

Hi   If you search youtube videos you can find many to help explain the calculation of pips in forex pairs but I wouldn't get too bogged down because you are not really buying or selling anything, you are taking a position in the market with the expectation price will move either up or down and so with that in mind the most important calculation is your risk and for that you need a position size calculator.


The fastest way to learn is to get on demo and play.

This phase is categorized under a counter trend function, suggesting that the ongoing correction is approaching completion. The recent trading session marked a significant increase in volume on the bullish side, hinting at a nearing end to the correction. Technically, the price has approached the critical 1.618 Fibonacci extension of wave {c} relative to {a}, reaching a key support level at the base of the leading diagonal from wave 1—a typical zone for finding support.   * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, Coca-Cola’s stock exhibits a detailed structure of the corrective phase, clearly depicting wave (v) of {c}.

    • I came across an interesting new meme token called EPIK that launched on the Solana blockchain earlier this month. It features a playful little duck character and has been gaining traction since its debut. In my opinion, several factors contribute to EPIK's potential. Meme coins naturally attract attention, and EPIK's unique duck character design helps it stand out. Additionally, backing from crypto influencers has fueled market interest. It seems on-chain activity is also picking up steam, with daily TV reaching millions of dollars and the number of holders approaching 10,000. With a strong community presence in both English-speaking and Chinese-speaking communities, a recent listing on Bitget potentially exposing it to a much wider audience, coupled with the potential for further price increases, I believe EPIK is a project to keep an eye on.
