FAQ

In which currency is my profit calculated?

The different instruments are traded in different currencies. For example, commodities (like Gold, Oil, Silver) are traded in USD, stocks and indices are traded either in EUR or USD depending on the origin of the instrument. The profit or loss of the currency pairs (like EUR/USD) is calculated in the second currency of the pair. If your account is in different currency, then your profit or loss will be exchanged in real time in the currency of your account.
