With the Margin Calculator you can calculate exactly how much margin is required in order to guarantee a position that you would like to open. Doing so helps you determine whether you should reduce the lot size you are trading, or adjust the leverage you are using, taking into account your account balance. Select your trading instrument, your trade size, leverage and account currency, and click ‘Calculate’. Our Margin Calculator will do the rest.
For forex, the margin calculation works as follows:
Required Margin = Trade Size / Leverage * account currency exchange rate (if different from the base currency of the pair traded)
Trading 3 lots of EUR/USD using 1:200 leverage with an account denominated in USD.
Trade size: 300,000
Account currency exchange rate: 1.13798
Required Margin: 300,000 / 200 * 1.13798 = $1706.97
For metals, the margin calculation works as follows:
Required Margin = Trade Size (0z) / Leverage * Market Price
Trading 1 lot (100 Oz) of GOLD using 1:200 leverage with an account denominated in USD.
Trade size = 100 Oz
Market price = 1235.90
Required Margin: 100 / 200 * 1235.90 = $617.95
When opening and closing many positions it can be easy to lose track of the performance of your individual trades. Now you can easily calculate this with our Profit Calculator. Simply select your currency pair, your account currency, how many days you kept the trade open for, the size of the position, whether you went long or short and your opening and closing prices. Click ‘Calculate’ and the Profit Calculator will work out exactly how the trade performed factoring in the swap fee.
