Profit calculator

Our profit calculator helps you to assess the potential profit (or loss) of a trade idea. How much you could potentially profit (or lose) will depend on several variables. These include what symbol is to be traded; the direction of the trade, the lot size, the open and closing prices and also the accounts base currency. This tool is particularly useful to help determine the risk vs potential reward of trades by calculating the potential profit (or loss). The lot size determines the value of each pip. You can check our pip value calculator here.

This is how to use the profit calculator

  • Select the symbol to trade
  • Choose the direction, buy or sell
  • Select the opening price
  • Select the closing price
  • Enter the trade size, in lots
  • Enter your accounts base currency

Then click calculate.

Here is an example how profit (or loss) is calculated

  • EURUSD is the symbol to be traded
  • The direction is buy
  • At the rate of exchange of 1.2000
  • And close the trade at 1.2100
  • 1 lot is to be traded
  • The accounts base currency is denominated in USD

The profit (or loss) will be calculated as;

The difference between the buy and sell price (1.2100 – 1.2000) = 0.01.

Then multiplied by the lot size, so;

(0.01) X 100,000 = the potential profit and that would be $1,000.

However if the closing price is worse than the buy price, then the loss would be the equivalent amount.

If the account’s base currency is denominated in EUR, then $1,000 would have to be converted to the EUR equivalent at the current EURUSD rate of exchange.
