    As traderGOD mentioned, this is .01 lot. With Forex, your trade quantity is represented by lots. An FCM like OANDA will give you "units", which is typically 100,000 units = 1 lot. Within the trading platform MT4, a lot is represented by the quantity. So 1 = 1 lot, just as 0.5 = 0.5 lots or 50,000 "units". These are called micro lots (10,000 units).

    Many FCM's offer micro lots as well, which is 1,000 units or 0.01 lots.

    traderGOD, are you using a TP/SL? I can only see your stops getting hit in your order history but do not see any reference of a TP.

    OK, but I'm still confused. Is one "unit" the same as one $ or one €?

    Also, curious about "NFA-registered instructors" -- does that mean Series 3? I hadn't seen that term before.
