How it works

Let’s assume you have a standard account with a leverage of 1:1000. Using a calculator you have calculated the spread, swap, and the potential profit for the item for the sale of 10 lots of the currency pair USD/JPY.

Consider the info provided in the summary table with the calculations based on a hypothetical opening price of 100.500 and a closing price of 100.3501.

The table displays the following:

  • Instrument: USD/JPY. For more information on individual trading instruments, check here.

  • Price: 100.500. This is the SELL price of the trade. For your convenience, the calculator can convert this amount into your deposit currency showing the exchange rate.

  • Pip Value: 99.50 USD. For more information on individual trading instruments, check here.

  • Spread (the difference between the Ask and Bid prices): 19.90 USD. Each currency pair has a minimum spread.

  • Swap (the cost of keeping a position open overnight). Depending upon the interest differential of the currencies you are trading with, this figure can either be positive or negative. The calculator works out the current value of the swap automatically.

  • Margin, or the minimum amount of free equity on your trading account required to open a certain position. The calculator inspects the Margin Requirements for each instrument individually.

  • Profit. As the position was opened as a SELL with the expectation that the price would fall, the potential profit is 1,542.25 USD.
