What are the lot sizes in Currency and Cross-Currency Derivatives?

Unlike Equity F&O, the quantity in the currency and cross-currency derivatives contracts are to be entered in lots.

For instance, if you wish to Buy 20000 Qty in a EURINR contract, you can just enter 20 in the quantity section of the order window as each lot of EURINR consists of 1000 Qty Euros. Therefore, 20000/1000 = 20 Lots.

Below is the table of the Currency and Cross-Currency pairs along with their lot sizes:


Lot Size


1000 Qty USD


1000 Qty GBP


1000 Qty EUR


100000 Qty JPY


1000 Qty EUR


1000 Qty GBP


1000 Qty USD
