Determining the contract size for a position size of 1.00

2. Click on the instrument with which you need more information.

3. Click Properties.

The information under Contract Size shows you how many contracts, or units, you are trading of the asset when entering 1.00 in the volume field. When you enter a fraction of 1.00, you trade with the respective fractional amount of contracts or units.

Here, for example, you would buy 100 ounces of GOLD when entering 1.00 for the volume.
