USDCHF point value=100000*0.0001*(CHF/USD)=10/USD/CHF= 10/0.9245=10.82 USD

USDJPY point value=100000*0.01*(JPY/USD)=1000/USD/JPY=1000/81.6775=12.24 USD

EURGPB point value=100000*0.0001*(GPB/USD)= 10*1.61=16.1 US dollars

GPBCHF point value=100000*0.0001*(CHF/USD)=10/USD/CHF=10/0.9245=10.82 USD

The minimum unit of the margin trading "hand"

When we understand what is the spread, what we need to understand is the unit "hand" that is closely related to the spread, the minimum unit of margin trading. In the case of a standard account, the trading unit provided by the broker on the general network is 1 lot (lot) and the volume is 100,000 base currency. In the case of a mini account, the deal in one hand is 1/10 of the standard account. For example, the actual transaction of USD/JPY is equivalent to actually buying (selling) 100,000 US dollars/day. If it is a lot of EUR/USD, the actual volume is equivalent to Euro/America worth 100,000 Euros.
