        2,000 USD notional trading value = 1 point

        The notional trading value of all valid closed transactions will be computed and recorded at 7:00 PM on the following day (GMT+3, adjusted for daylight savings).

        Example
        Date/Time of Trade (GMT+3) Date/Time of Point Value Recorded (GMT+3)
        15 Jan
        12:00 AM–11:59:59 PM
        16 Jan
        7:00 PM
        22 Nov
        12:00 AM–11:59:59 PM
        23 Nov
        7:00 PM

        Points will be awarded per 2,000 USD increment in notional trading value. No points will be awarded for increments below this threshold.

        Example
        Day 1: 2,500 USD notional trading value = 1 point
        Day 2: 3,500 USD notional trading value = 3 points (cumulative)

      • 2.5.5.  Formula for the calculation of notional trading value:

        Notional trading value = Lot size * contract size * close price * exchange rate (base/quote)

        Example 1
        Gold (XAUUSD)

        The following example demonstrates how the calculation of notional trading value is applied;

        Lot: 2 Lots
        Closing price: $1700.55
        Contract size: 100 oz

        Substituting the numbers into the formula (Lot size * contract size* close price / exchange rate (base/quote)):
        2*100*1700.55 =340,110 USD notional trading value

        Calculation to point(s) equivalent:
        340,110 USD notional trading value = 170.05 = 170 points

        Example 2
        EURCAD

        The following example demonstrates how the calculation of notional trading value is applied;

        Lot: 2 Lots
        Closing price: $1.38000 (EURCAD)
        Contract size:100,000
        Currency Rate: 1.35 (USDCAD)*

        *In this example, USDCAD is used to convert the notional trading value calculated into USD.

        Substituting the numbers into the formula (Lot size * contract size *close price / exchange rate (base/quote)):
        2 * 100,000 * 1.38000 / 1.35 = 204,444.44 USD notional trading value

        Calculation to point(s) equivalent:
        204,444.44 USD notional trading value = 102.22 = 102 points

        Example 3
        EURAUD

        The following example demonstrates how the calculation of notional trading value is applied;

        Lot: 2 Lot
        Closing price: $1.50000 (EURAUD)
        Contract size:100,000
        Currency Rate: 0.70 (AUDUSD)*

        *In this example, AUDUSD is used to convert the notional trading value calculated into USD.

        Substituting the numbers into the formula (Lot size * contract size*close price / exchange rate (base/quote)):
        2 * 100,000 * 1.50000 / 0.70 = 428,571.42 USD notional trading value

        Calculation to point(s) equivalent:
        428,571.42 USD notional trading value = 214.28 = 214 points

        Important Note:
        - Please be aware that the above examples are provided for illustrative purposes only, and actual calculation may vary..

      • 2.5.6.  Points acquired during the present month must be utilised within the next 12 months; beyond this timeframe, the points will expire.
