What is Forex Currency Trading Leverage and PIPs?

PIP Price Movement

A pip unit is the measurement of a currency pair price movement. A pip is stated in the amount of $0.0001 for U.S.-dollar related currency pairs. A 100 pip move is equal to a one cent move when traded with U. S. Dollar pairs.

Forex Leverage

Leverage is the amount of money you are able to invest as a result of borrowing investment capital from your Forex currency broker. Basically, the more leverage you use, the more capital you have at risk in your position. Most Forex currency brokers in the United States offer 50 to 1 leverage. A $10,000 account enables you to trade $500,000 of currency.

Lot Trading Sizes

A standard Forex currency account has specific trading size lots. A lot is the minimum quantity of a currency pair that may be traded. Typically, one regular trading unit lot is worth $100,000, a mini trading unit lot is worth $10,000 and these are the most common lot sizes. Other "lot" sizes are available depending on which Forex currency trading broker you trade with.

A Forex Currency Trade Explanation

For example; standard lot size is $100,000, pip value is $10 (1 lot or $100,000 x 0.0001 or 1 PIP = $10.00). If your account contains $10,000 and you have a leverage of 50:1, then you will have $500,000 of available potential trading funds ($10,000 x 50 = $500,000) which equals 5 lots (5 lots x $100,000 = $500,000) that you can use for investing in the Forex currency market. It would be extremely risky to use the entire $500,000 that you have available for trading because each single PIP movement would be worth $50 when trading 5 lots which are worth $500,000. You could wipe out half your account just by losing 100 pips, a one cent move, (100 pips or .0100 x $500,000 or five lots = $5,000). Although there is large downside risk to having high leverage, there is also a large upside for potential gain - if you were to make 100 pips (one cent), your original account value of $10,000 would increase to $15,000, and you would rake in a 50% return in one hour, one day, one month or whatever the time frame the gain transpired over!"

New Maximum Leverage Rules/Laws

As received from Forex.com: "Effective Monday, October 18, 2010 a new CFTC regulation will go into effect that limits the maximum leverage in the retail Forex markets to 50:1. The new margin requirement is 2% (50:1 leverage) for the major currencies and 5% for all other currencies (20:1 leverage). Metals will be offered at 100:1".

When Trading Forex Currency Go With The Trend

Trade with the Forex FX Currency trend to maximize your chances to succeed. Trading against the trend won�t kill a trader, but will definitely require more attention and your chance of losses will increase. In the end the trend will almost always be your friend.

Using a highly leveraged Forex currency account can come at a cost

Using a highly leveraged Forex FX trading account comes at a cost. It will, of course, give a trader more financial gear to trade into more profits quickly, but for inexperienced traders high leverage, and, in fact, any Forex leverage can be disastrous. When a trader signs up for a high leverage without knowing how to accurately use it to his own advantage, he simply signs up for additional risks that multiply.

Forex Currency Market - What Is It & How It Works?

The Forex FX currency market is the largest market in the world.

The market in which participants from around the world are able to buy, sell, exchange and speculate on different currencies. International currency markets are made up of banks, commercial companies, central banks, investment management firms, hedge funds, retail forex brokers and investors.

The international Forex currency markets are large and liquid, therefore it is thought that they are extremely efficient. International Forex currency transactions do not occur on a single exchange, but in a global computer network of large banks and brokers from around the world.

The Forex FX currency market focuses on the trade of currencies by both large investment banks and individuals around the world. All trading is done over-the-counter, which adds to the market's liquidity, allowing trades to be made 24 hours a day. Trading can be done in nearly all currencies, however, a small group known as the majors is used in most trades. These currencies are the U.S. dollar, the euro, the British pound, the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar. All currencies are quoted in currency pairs.

When a trade is made in the forex fx currency market, it has two sides � someone is buying one currency in the pair, while another individual is selling the other. Although the positions traded in forex are often in excess of 100,000 currency units, only a fraction of the total position comes from the investor. The remainder is provided by a broker, which offers the leverage needed to make the trade.

Traders look to make a profit by betting that a currency's value will either appreciate or depreciate against another currency. For example, assume that you purchase US$100,000 by selling 80,000 euros. In this case, you are betting that the value of the dollar will increase against the euro. If your bet is correct and the value of the dollar increases, you will make a profit. In order to collect this profit, you will have to close your position. To do this, you must sell the US$100,000, in which case you will receive more than 80,000 euros in return.

Traders are not required to settle their positions on the delivery date, which usually arises two business days after the position is opened. Traders can roll over their positions to the next available delivery date. However, if a trader takes this route, he or she is left open to incurring a charge that can arise depending on his or her position and the difference between the interest rates on the two currencies in the pair.
