This tool will help you to manage the size of the position which you are going to take, by reference to the risk which you accept.

Risk

Depending on the case, the risk corresponds:

  • Either to the maximum amount which you are willing to lose
  • Or to a percentage of your capital

Enter either an amount of risk or a percentage of the capital

Trade

In order to calculate the size of the position, it is also necessary to know the number of pips which you are willing to lose (by the intermediary of the entry price and the stop-loss).
Enter the pair to be traded and either the number of pips, or the entry price and the stop-loss of your position. The direction (Buy or Sell) is only used here to pre-calculate the stop-loss.

Result

Many brokers do not offer the option to trade all sizes of position. In general, they operate with standard sizes: micro-lot (1000 units), mini-lot (10,000 units) or lot (100,000 units). This is why we add the number of contracts (rounded to the upper and lower number) in the following results. We indicate the real risk.
Here the leveraged effect is calculated just on an indicative basis on the basis of the capital (if completed), the size of the position and the level of risk. It helps you to check that you will not exceed the maximum leverage authorized by your broker.
