How To Set A Stop Loss Based On Risk Percentage
Calculate a trade's profit or loss. Compare the results for different opening and closing rates (either historic or hypothetical).
Use this Stop Loss/Take Profit Calculator to find out exactly how much you potentially stand to lose or gain if your respective stop loss/take profit levels are hit. Simply select the currency pair you are trading, enter your account currency and your position size. Select whether your trade is long or short and then enter your desired stop loss/take profit levels. Press ‘Calculate’ and the Stop Loss/Take Profit Calculator will work out your potential losses and gains denominated in your account currency.
