Calculating Total Cost

The total cost to your trade is the spread multiplied by the pip cost. For example, assume EUR/USD on an AUD-denominated account has a spread of 1.2. To figure the total cost per 1K:

( Spread )
x ( Pip Cost )
x ( Number of Lots Traded )
= Total Cost

* Target spreads in UK100, GER30, FRA40 and AUS200 may widen when the respective exchange is closed.
