FXCM utilises a "lot-based" trading system. This simply means that all FXCM products are aggregated into
standardized trade sizes. These sizes generally replicate the underlying reference instrument (the futures or
cash instrument) or are a fraction of that figure. This simplifies trading by allowing clients to trade in lot
increments, and also provides a price for each lot size rather than averaging open and close prices when
multiple positions are taken in the same instrument.
The lot size for all indices is in fact one contract (i.e., 1 US 30, 1 UK 100, etc). However, in order to effectively reflect the movement and profit/loss implications of their underlying futures, FXCM has established a minimum/incremental trade size as detailed on page 3.
