Ok - well if you're so smart then why don't you answer the question?

To clarify - If I buy one lot contract size of EURUSD, then how much would I need to bet per pip with a spreadbetting firm to give me the same exposure?


A previous poster said its the equivalent of betting £1 per pip.
Do you agree? If not then what is the number?

Do you agree?

For heaven's sake, Qwerty, there's nothing to disagree with - except basic arithmetic, which has been universally agreed on since the days of Euclid or before.

From your own figures, your man made an average of 40 pips per trade (derived simply by dividing his 80,000 pips by his 2,000 trades), so if you're going to bet at £1 per pip, you're therefore going to make £40 per trade, aren't you? Over 2,000 trades that will therefore be £80,000.

It's factual (subject to the considerations mentioned in my original response).

A child of 7 or 8 can work that out.

Why on Earth are you asking people if they "agree" or want to suggest a different number? Sorry, but your question makes no sense at all.
