Gold trade example:

Long position
Open Price = 1370.00
Closing Price = 1390.50
Trade size = 1 lot (100 ounces)

Required Margin to open 1 lot (100 ounces) of Gold = 1 x 100 x 1370.00 x 1/100 =$1370

Profit/Loss Calculation

The Buy position (1 lot) was closed (sold) at 1390.50 from a 1370.00 open.
Market movement = 1390.50 - 1370.00 = 2050 ticks.
P&L Calculation = $1 x 2050 = $2050
