Pip Value Calculator

How it works:
Our pip calculator will help you determine the value per pip in your base currency so that you can monitor your risk per trade with more accuracy.All you need is your base currency, the currency pair you are trading on, the exchange rate and your position size in order to calculate the value of a pip.

The calculation is performed as follows:
Pip Value = (One Pip / Exchange Rate) * Lot Size

Example:

One Pip: 0.0001
Account Base Currency: EUR
Currency Pair: EUR/USD
Exchange Rate: 1.08962 (EUR/USD)
Lot Size: 1 LotPip Value = 0.0001 / 1.08962 * 1
Each Pip is worth €9.18

Margin Calculator

How it works:
Our margin calculator helps you calculate the margin needed to open and hold positions.Enter your account base currency, select the currency pair and the leverage, and finally enter the size of your position in lots.

The calculation is performed as follows:
Required Margin = Trade Size / Leverage * Account Currency Exchange Rate

Example:

Volume in Lots: 5 (One Standard Lot = 100,000 Units)
Leverage: 100
Account Base Currency: USD
Currency Pair: EUR/USD
Exchange Rate: 1.365 (EUR/USD)Required Margin = 500,000 /100 * 1.365
Required margin is $6825.00 USD

Swaps Calculator

How it works:
A swap rate is a rollover interest rate, which XM credits to or debits from clients’ accounts when a position is held open overnight. The swap rate is credited or debited once for each day of the week when a position is rolled over, with the exception of Wednesday, when it is credited or debited 3 times (i.e. 7 swaps in 5 trading days).By using our swap calculator you can calculate the interest rate differential between the two currencies of the currency pair on your open positions.Enter your account base currency, select the currency pair, enter the account type, the trade size in lots and the leverage.

The calculation is performed as follows:
Swap = (One Point / Exchange Rate) * Trade Size (Lot Size) * Swap Value in Points

Example:

One Point: 0.00001
Account Base Currency: EUR
Currency Pair: EUR/USD
Exchange Rate: 1.0895 (EUR/USD)
Volume in Lots: 5 (One Standard Lot = 100,000 Units)
Short Swap Rate: 0.15Swap Value = (0.00001 / 1.0895) * (500,000 * 0.15)
Swap Value is €0.69

*If the result is negative your account will be debited whereas if it is positive your account will be credited.

Profit and Loss Calculator

How it works:
Our profit and loss calculator will help you find out how much you stand to lose or gain if your stop-loss and/or take-profit levels have been reached.Select your base currency, the currency pair you are trading on, your trade size in lots and account type. Set the opening price and your stop loss and take profit values.Click here for more information on spreads and conditions

The calculation is performed as follows:
SL / TP Levels = SL, TP Amount / Pip Value Formula * Exchange Rate

TP Amount: 100.00 EUR
SL Amount: 100.00 EUR
Pip Value Formula: 45.99393
Account Base Currency: EUR
Currency Pair: EUR/USD
Exchange Rate: 1.08710 (EUR/USD)SL / TP Levels = 100.00 / 45.99393 * 1.08710
SL / TP Levels = 2.3 pip
