The following provides examples of related transactions for reference.
    Example:Mr. Wang predicted that the price of Brent crude oil would fall, and sold 3 lots of Brent crude oil at the price of 61.57, and at the close of the day, boughth 3 Brent crude oil at the price of 59.88 to close the position.
    Profit/Loss=(Ask price - Bid price)x Contract Value x Lots ± Overnight interest - Commission
    = (61.57-59.88)x 100 barrels x 3 Lots
    = USD $507
