If we return to our example of buying £5, if the DAX increases to 9623.5/9624.5 and we decide that this is a good point to exit the trade, our profit would be thus:

The amount we bought (5) x the points increase (2) = £10

Returning to our other example, where we sold £5 of the DAX at 9620.5, if we closed the trade at the lower level of 9615.5/9616.5,

our loss would be calculated like this:

The amount we sold (5) x the point decrease (4) = £20

Had however the DAX fallen, from a level of 9620.5/9621.5 to 9618.5/9619.5, we would make a loss on the trade where we bought:

The amount we bought (5) x the point decrease (3) = £15

In the example where we sold, a profit would be made:

The amount we sold (5) x the point increase (1) = £5
