For example, if you buy 1,000 at the rate of 1.5342 for 1,534 dollars, with 1:100 level you can open position GBP/USD amounting for 0.01 lot (1,000 GBP), while your deposit is only 15.34 dollars.

Now, to complete the deal, you need to close the position by making the reverse transaction. Noticing the growth of GBP rate to 1.5392, you make another deal now selling GBP/USD. Your profit is $5. However, if the exchange rate went down, you would incur losses. To succeed at forex online, you must be patient. Continuous self-training is the key to success.
