  1. Hi Karen, I watch your channel at first time. You are very good teacher. Thanks to make such great video for us.
    However, too many scammers are using your channel to fishing. :(

  2. I mean no disrespect, I truly don't want to judge anyone, because I don't want to be judged. But this young person speaks very fast in such a broken language I cannot understand most of what is being said.

  3. Good work Karen!!….lets say l have my capital in US dollars and l want to calculate value per pip for EUR/GBP ,do l multiply with the current market price again to have value per pip in $???

  4. in all these people explaining trading forex you are the only one who make me understand how it works, thanks for doing what you do. And Haters you should be grateful for what she is teaching us, wow, some people man…..

  5. Karen Foo : if the volume is 1000 and trading is O.01 so how much dollar invested in currency pair for a mini account?
    I still don't understand it.
    For Eg. If account has 1000 USD and at the rate of 0.01 to do trading of a currency pair, then how much USD invested in thay trade?

  6. I've been looking for a video that i could understand…you are definitely the one!! thank you sooo much and you got me as follower…simple and easy to follow

  7. Thanks Karen. I’m still a bit in the dark. I tried trading the GBPUSD today and it was at around 1.30416 Buy and 1.30434 Sell. I thought it was as easy as pressing the buy or sell button seeing that I had more than 1.304 in my trading account. When I pressed the buy button METATRADER responded with NOT ENOUGH MONEY. Please help.

  8. You're the only educator online that I enjoy consuming the content.. all the other educators bores the heck out of me. You keep it simple, straight to the point and easy to understand. And I like that you cover so much more than just the technical aspects of trading.

  9. Thank you so much.for this Good video simple ,especially for beginner and This is what we need to interpret Forex easily without complication

  10. Hi thanks for the video. May I ask: how do you calculate the initial investment? The profit for the EURUSD is $430 and we bought 1 standard lot. Does that we bought for $10(value per pip) or for $10 x 100 000 (standard lot)?

  11. This is the formula I use for calculating profit and lose: 0.0001 or 0.01 (depending on the type of trading currency) *lot size*the number of pip. In summary, it's value per pip multiplied by lot size multiplied by number of pip. 1 lot size (100000)*0.0001*100=$1000
