With the Margin Calculator, you can accurately calculate the amount of pledge to ensure that the desired position is guaranteed. Using the calculator will help you determine whether you need to reduce the size of the lot when trading or adjust the size of the leverage to avoid excessive loading of the deposit. Select the trading instrument, the size of the lot and the leverage, and the currency of the account, then simply click on the “Calculate” button.
For the Forex, the value of the pledge is calculated as follows:
Required margin = Lot size / Leverage amount * deposit currency rate (if differs from the base currency pair in which the trade is conducted).
Example: Trading 3 lots of EUR / USD, using a leverage of 1: 200 with the account currency in USD.
Lot size: 300,000
Deposit currency rate: 1.13798
The amount of the deposit: 300,000 / 200 * 1.13798 = $ 1706.97
For metals the value of the pledge is calculated as follows:
Required Margin = Lot Size (Oz) / Leverage Size * Market Price
Example: Trading 1 lot (100 Oz) of gold and using the leverage of 1: 200 with the account currency in USD.
Lot size = 100 Oz
Market value = 1235.90
The amount of the pledge: 100/200 * 1235.90 = $ 617.95
Calculation of the cost of the point
For more effective risk management, it is important to know the cost of the point by
each position in the currency of your trading account.
The calculator of the point`s cost will do this for you. Just specify your trading instrument, size of the transaction and deposit currency. Click the “Calculate” button to determine how much is the price fluctuation point costs.
For Forex, the value of the item is calculated as follows:
Point cost = (One point * Lot size) / Market price
Example: Trading 1 lot of EUR / USD with the account currency in EUR.
One point = 0.0001
Lot size = 100,000
Exchange rate = 1.13798
0.0001 * 100,000 = 10
10 / 1.13798 = 8.78750
The cost of the point is € 8.79
For metals, you can calculate the cost of a tick instead of the cost of the point. The cost of a tick is calculated as follows:
Cost of tick = Tick (0.01) * Volume in Oz
Example: Trading 1 lot (100 Oz) of gold with the account currency in USD.
0.01 * 100 = 1
Each tick costs $ 1
