Example

You only pay or get paid the difference in the entry price and the exit price, for example: you buy (long) one contract of Dow Jones at an entry price of $27,000 USD and exit (close your trade) at $27,400 USD this means you make a profit of $400 USD per contract. If the price goes down, then you will have to pay the difference, for example, if you buy a contract of Dow Jones at $27,000 and exit at $26,800 then you would have to pay $200 USD per contract (also referred to as a loss) to the other party (usually a clearing house or an exchange). To clarify, if you Buy a contract (long) you want the price to go up  to make a profit. On the other hand, when you sell a contract (short) you are expecting the price to drop to make a profit.
