    Lot sizes in the forex trading margin which we use when trading. So our margin will be calculated by the value of the currency pair contracts that will be traded, also with the leverage that we use. So will we be able to measure the volume of trading margin capabilities that we have, and the volume was commonly called the lot.

    Lot size is the volume size in a trade. The higher lot size gives us more profit as well as loss. The smallest lot size is 0.01 and it is 1 cent in size. If the market moves by 1 pip then its means we will get 1 pip or lose 1 pip. In start of trading, every trader must used lot lot size in forex market because it controls the emotions of a trader.

    I fully agree with you to this point. We need to calculate the lot size managing risk reward ratio. Trading lot size is very important to continue trading with less risk. Big lot trading can bring us big profit also, but we need to think the negative aspects of big lot trading. Any wrong trading with big lot can become the cause of big loss also.

    Lot is the amount of invested capital after executing the trade either buy or sell. It depends how you are capable of making money management and if that is making difficult for you to calculate then use the traders calculator in the client login and there you can be able to calculate how much to invest with keeping eye on the equity and risks.

    lot size is the amount of money that you use to trade with each order, it is three types, standard lot, mini lot ,micro lot, the trader should trade with the suitable lot size in each trade and avoid trading with high lot size to avoid trading with high risk, this will make the trading safe and will avoid a big loss, the trader should determine the suitable size of lot before trading.
