Forex pair example

You’re interested in trading a Bitcoin (USD) CFD. Our price is currently 35000 / 35400.

You believe the bitcoin price will fall against the dollar, so you sell 1 contract at 35000 (equivalent to selling 100 bitcoins at $350).

The bitcoin price falls and our new price is 33600 / 34000. You decide to take your profit by buying at 34000.

35000 – 34000 = 1000 pips

Your gross profit is 1000 x $1 = $1000.

If the market had rallied 500 points instead, your gross loss would be $500.
