So i was looking at this index chart and am a little confused...
futures.tradingcharts.com/specs/
cmegroup.com/trading/agricultural/grain-and-oilseed/soybean_contractSpecs_futures.html
cmegroup.com/trading/agricultural/grain-and-oilseed/mini-sized-soybean_contract_specifications.html


SOYBEANS FUTURES
im confused on soybeans trading, from what i understand if i buy 1 ZS soy contract when soy is at 850.00 and it moves to 851.00 for a gain of 1.0 that would mean i profited $5,000 USD? Am i correct?

MINI SOYBEANS FUTURES
im also confused on mini soybeans trading, from what i understand if i buy 1 YK mini soy contract when mini soy is at 850.00 and it moves to 851.00 for a gain of 1.0 that would mean i profited $1,000 USD ? Am i correct?

if i am not correct can someone please clarify for me the profit made on a 1.0 movement???

The move from 850 to 851 = $ 50.-- (soybeans) and $ 10.-- (mini soybeans)

Looks like the notional value of the contract.

Price x 5,000 bushels for the full size contract and price x 1,000 bushels for the mini contract.
