Margin Calculation Help

Question

I am new to forex trading and was using IG demo account.  I knew that the contract size for EUR/USD is 100000 and margin is 0.5%.

How does the margin (3329.99 ) calculated? What does the phrase "US$10.00 per point" meant?

Thank you.

    • Is that a trick question..? I'm trying to have a broad picture.  And to consider (and develop an understanding of) as many influences on prices as I can.
    • And just so you can 'get where I'm coming from' for the last 6 months here is a data set from Asia I posted way back in February (Daily Dashboard thread). Looks pretty similar doesn't it and certainly a million miles from Ferguson's model predicting hundreds of thousands of deaths.
