### Can you provide a simple example of how online trading works?

Last Updated: Aug 11, 2019 10:21AM UTC
Let’s look at your trading account and imagine that you’ve just invested \$4,000.
In this case, let's use, for example, leverage of 20:1. This means that you can now open trades of up to \$80,000 (see below):

 Your investment Leverage Your trading power \$4000 X 20 \$80,000

As you know, there are many commodities, currency pairs, cryptocurrencies indices, shares and ETFs that you can trade in the form of CFDs. Let’s take an example of a popular commodity: Gold.

Now let's say that one CFD on gold is currently trading at \$1,000. Your intuition tells you that gold prices will move up, and therefore you’ve decided to buy 50 CFDs on Gold.

50 x 1,000 = \$50,000

After a while, you look at your trading account and see that you were right: the price of the CFD on Gold has gone up and is now trading at \$1,020!

It means that your 100 CFDs are worth now:
50 x 1,020 = \$51,000
You decide to close your trade.

Your total profit from this trade is:
51,000 – 50,000 = \$1,000
A \$1,000 profit for a \$4,000 investment… Not bad right?

Note that the same logic of calculation applies to all the instruments.
*In this example, we did not include the potential rollover, overnight financing and spread in the calculations.
* The same calculation process applies to losing deals.
