P&L Results

Recommended Posts

Hi there

New to trading and would like some clarity as to why the P&L results are approximately magnified by 3.55x the actual price movement. File is attached for clarity.

Hey - if we take the first line...

28667.5 to 28845 is 177.5 points 

177.5 * 2.5 (contract value) = 443.75 USD 

443.75 USD in AUD would have been 627.19 at that exchange rate on the point of realized profit.  

hope this clarifies

    • @bapu1, There are two words which any serious trader must not rely on and they are 'Luck' and 'Hope'. Those two words can help a gambler but a trader requires a plan, a strategy, a system, experience, knowledge, skills, etc.
