Account Currency – ZAR or USD
Arguably the most asked question; should I trade in ZAR or USD? What are the benefits, pros, cons and minimum trading volume.
BlackStone Futures offer both South African Rand (R/ZAR) and United States Dollar ($/USD) as account base currency. Both offer a wide range of trading assets; Forex. Stocks, Commodities, Indices and Cryptocurrency.
Minimum Lot size/Volume
ZAR: 0.01 = R0.01 ($0.0007) USD: 0.01 = $0.10 (R1,14) As clearly indicated, ZAR based accounts offer a significantly lower risk per point when compared to the USD alternative.
