0.10 lots = 10,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our "mini" lot size.

1.00 lots = 100,000 units of base currency (or dollars) Our "standard" lot size.

**Please note that trading in lot sizes that are not shown in the scale above is possible. An example would be an open a lot position of 0.60 (60,000 units), an 8.00 lot position (800,000 units), and even a 3.20 lot position (320,000 units).
