- The first currency listed in a currency pair is known as the based currency. The second currency listed is the quote currency.
- Calculations are based on the assumption that the quote currency (the second currency in the currency pair) is the currency which denominates the brokerage account. For example, a U.S. dollar account is assumed for EURUSD currency pair calculations. Profits and losses, brokerage fees and charges and financial costs are calculated in the (assumed) currency denominating the account.
- Profits and losses, trading costs and interest on leverage financing vary depending on the broker used and the currency pair in question. The calculator applies a constant interest rate to the investment position size in the base currency (the first currency in a currency pair). The result is converted into the account-denominating currency at the final exchange rate simultaneously. Leverage financing interest is not applied to positions which are opened and closed within the same trading day.
- Brokers generally require the deposit of money into brokerage accounts (in the account-denominating currency) which acts as collateral against loans provided for leveraged trading. This collateral is known as the margin. Brokers normally indicate the margin as a percentage of the value of investment positions. This percentage rate can vary depending on the currency pair in question.
- A pip is a measurement used to indicate changes in the exchange rates of currency pairs. With most currency pairs, a pip indicates an amount equal to 0.0001 of a currency unit. You can find more information about pips here.
- Results are calculated using exact figures and then rounded to the second decimal.
