Example 1 (HKK5U)

An investor trade HKK5U_BBJ at 18,000 level as much as 2 lots (Open Buy  2 lots),  he predicted that  prices will move higher.  In the  afternoon trading session  the price moves up to 18,400 level and the liquidating all the position at 18,300 level (Close Sell 2 lots).

Calculation:
• Open Buy (a.k.a New Buy) 2 lots at 18,000

• Close Sell (a.k.a Liquid Sell) 2 lots at 18,300

Based on the formula:

P/L = [(18300-18000) pts x US$5 x 2 lots] - [(US30 + US$3) x 2 lots]

P/L = (300 pts x US$10) - US$66

P/L = US$2,934

Net profit for customers is US$2,934.

Note: P = Profit, L = Loss

Example 2 (JPK5U)

An investor estimate the Nikkei 225 index will fall, then at that point investors immediately took the selling positions at the level of 14,850 points as much as 2 lots. Two days later, the investor closed the positions when the price stood at 14,650 points.

Calculation:

P/L = [(Selling Price - Buying Price) x Contract Size x n Lot] - [(Fee US$30 + VAT) x n Lot]

P/L = [(14,850-14,650) x US$ 5 x 2 lots] - [(US$ 30 + US$ 3) x 2 lots]

P/L = (200 points x $ 5 x 2 lots) - (US$ 33 x 2 lots) = US$2,000 - US$66

P/L = US$1,934 (gross profit)

Due to the transaction completed over one day (overnight), it will be applied roll-over fee as much as US$8 (US$2 x 2 lots x 2 nights), thus net profit is US$ 1,934 - US$8 = US$1,926

Example 3 (XULF)

A customer predicts the Loco London gold price in the positive trend and he plans to take positions XULF contract. When taking a position, he got the price at the level of $1,175.30 / troy ounce as much as 2 lots. However, the price had dropped to as low as $1,160.65 / troy ounce, and he had to liquidate the position as much as 1 lot at $1,165.30 / troy ounce. The rest (Open Buy) that he had liquidated the next day when the price stood at $1,190.20 / troy ounce.

Calculation:

The first day

P/L  = [US$(1165.30 - 1175.30) / troy ounce x 100 troy ounce x 1 lot] - [US$(30 + 3) x 1 lot]

P/L  = - US$1000 - US$33 = - US$1,033

Day two

P/L  = [US$(1190.20 to 1175.30) / troy ounce troy ounce x 100 x 1 lot] - [US$ (30 + 3) x 1 lot]

P/L  = US$1,490 - US$33 = US$1,457

Because it traded more than 1 (one) day of the roll-over fee charged:

US$5 x 1 lot x 1 night = US$5

Net profit for clients is -US$1,033 + US$1,457 - US$ 5 = US$419
