Market Spot EUR/USD
Price 1.37020/1.37028
Trade

Buy 1 contract at 1.37028 (1 contract = €100,000 or $10 per pip)

Margin required

One contract is€£100,000 and the margin rate is 2% = €2000 or $2740

What happens next? GBP/USD climbs over one hundred points into the next day. 
Funding

Funding = size per point x (tom-next rate + admin fee of 0.3% pa)

10 x 0.25 = 2.50

Gross profit

Gross profit = 1522

1.38550 – 1.37028 = 0.01522
