Currency pairs are traded in pairs. We know that by now.
While placing your trade, the broker platform will ask you about "How many lots do you want to trade with"?
“LOTS” represents the amount that you are buying or selling. Think of it like kilos, or pounds when you are buying vegetables or litres when you are buying gas/petrol for your car..
In the trading world, Lots are the amount you want to buy or sell.
The three most common types of lots are :
One standard lot =100,000 units of the base currency,
Example: 1 lot of EURUSD would be equal to 100,000 euros.
One mini lot = 10,000 units of the base currency Example: 1 mini lot of GBPUSD would be equal 10,000 British pounds.
Of course, we show you in more details (step-by-step) inside our basic course- Activate
1 micro lot is equal to 1,000 units of the base currency in your currency pair. Example: 1 micro lot of AUD/USD is equal to 1,000 US Dollars. Now, you don't have to have 100000 to trade because you can use leverage ?
