How do I calculate profit?

You can calculate profit on long positions using the formula (Close Price – Open Price) x Contract Size x Lots.

Let’s look at an example to help explain this better. Imagine you bought 0.01 lots of EURUSD, at a contract size of 100,000 units. The Opening Price for the trade was 1.29887 and the Closing Price was 1.29906.

The profit for this trade would be calculated as (1.29906 - 1.29887) x 100,000 x 0.01 = 0,19 USD, as profit is always calculated in the quote currency of the pair.

In cases where the volume of your trade is different, and the profit is too small, it may not appear in your account, as the system will round it down to 0.
