How does a Margin Forex Contract work?

Example 1-Buying 1 lot of EURUSD contract (which has a contract size of 100,000) in view that EUR will appreciate against USD.

Description Calculation
Buy/Long1 lot of EURUSD contract at the ask price 1.13330 1 x 100,000 x 1.13330 = USD113,330 (contract value denominated in the Right-Hand-Side (RHS) currency)
The leverage level set on your account is 200:1. It requires an Initial Margin to be deposited into your account, which is 0.5% of the contract value USD113,330 x 0.005 = USD566.65 (Initial Margin) Subject to underlying price movement
Closing 1 lot of EURUSD contract (Sell/Short) at the bid price 1.13830 (1.13830 - 1.13330) x 1 x 100,000 = USD500.00 profit

Example 2-Selling 1 lot of EURUSD contract (which has a contract size of 100,000) in view that EUR will depreciate against USD.

Description Calculation
Sell/Short 1 lot of EURUSD contract at the bid price 1.13450 1 x 100,000 x 1.13450 = USD113,450 (contract value denominated in the Right-Hand-Side (RHS) currency)
The leverage level set on your account is 200:1. It requires an Initial Margin to be deposited into your account, which is 0.5% of the contract value USD113,450 x 0.005 = USD567.25 (Initial Margin) Subject to underlying price movement
Closing 1 lot of EURUSD contract (Buy/Long) at the ask price 1.13850 (1.13850 - 1.13450) x 1 x 100,000 = USD400.00 loss
