##### How do you calculate for lot sizes in Forex trade?

Forex calculators are a necessary and extremely helpful set of tools to help traders manage their risk. The Forex markets are a challenging and volatile asset class and must be approached with the required caution and dedication needed to be successful. Therefore, we must be aware of how much money we want to risk on each trade on a percentage basis, and how much leverage we are going to use given the amount we have on margin. The Forex position size calculator uses pip amount, percentage at risk and the margin to determine the maximum lot size. When the currency pair is quoted in terms of US dollars the equation is as follows; Lot Size = ((Margin * Percentage) ÷ Pip Amount) ÷ 100k.
Forex Margin Calculator:
Let’s say one of the FX pairs you are going to trade is the EURUSD, which is the first item at the top of the picture. Then the next item is leverage, in this case, 1:10, followed by account currency, USD, and lot size, 1. When you click on calculate for the above data, you get a margin requirement of \$11,427.00. This amount is larger than what would initially come to mind based on a 10:1 leverage. The number that some traders would come up with in their heads would be \$10,000. The difference comes from the lot units being quoted in Euros, which are worth more than \$1. So, each lot size of €100,000 is equal to \$114,270.
Repeating the process for another two currency pairs, for example, GBPUSD and USDJPY would give margin requirements of \$13,022 and \$10,000 respectively. Adding the three results together gives a total margin size of \$34,449 to trade these 3 currency pairs, 1 lot each, with a leverage of 10 to 1. To calculate margin needed given the leverage is a simple calculation even when the currency pair is quoted in foreign currency terms; as in the case of USDJPY then Margin = Lot Size ÷ Leverage. An example, where leverage is 1:10, lot size = 1, then Margin = 100,000 ÷ 10 = 10,000 in US dollars.
When the currency pair is quoted in terms of US dollar, there is an additional calculation required to bring the margin requirement into terms of US dollar, and that is the exchange rate (FX). In this case; Margin = (Lot Size ÷ Leverage) * FX. The example in the image above is calculated as follows; Margin = (100,000 ÷ 10) * 1.1427 = 11,427 in US dollars.

##### Does anyone have an automatic lot size calculator for MT5?

I'd like to just enter in what % of my portfolio I'm willing to risk and it give me the lot.
For example, I want to make 1% of my port per day (giving out ideas here for sake of clarity). And I want to risk 3% on a trade. (again, sake of clarity here lol). Is there a download that will automatically tell me or set it for me? Not something I have to pre enter entry, stop loss, etc..

Thank you

##### Futures /Forex Position size calculator (R/R in \$ value)

The position size calculator displays R in tick value. It would be really helpful to have the option to display R in dollar value. Especially for Futures and Forex traders. In Futures, the tick value is different by the asset.

##### HOW TO CALCULATE FOREX PROFITS BASED ON LOT SIZE AND ASSET VALUE OR CURRENCY PAIR

Do you know how to calculate profits on Forex?
This is very crucial for your risk and money management in Forex Trading.
There is a simple formula to calculate the value per pip:
1 pip in the decimal form / the current exchange rate of the quote currency to the US Dollar
However, this is the value of a pip per unit, but on Forex traders operate with a bigger number of units — so-called lots. The standard size of a lot equals 100 000 units of a base currency. There are also a mini lot (10 000 units) and micro lot (1000 units).
If you open a long trade with one standard lot on EUUSD, you will be buying 100,000 units. In this case, your profit will be not 0.00009478 USD for 1 pip the price goes in your favor, but 0.00009478 USD x (multiplied) 100,000 which is approximately 9.4787 USD.
You should remember that the US Dollar is a quote currency in many pairs (EUUSD, GBP/USD etc.). It means that the exchange rate of the quote currency to USD equals to 1.
🔸For such pairs one pip will always cost \$10 when we trade a 100 000 — unit contract (1 standard lot): 100 000 х 0.0001 / 1 = \$10 (pip value for EUUSD)
🔸For the pairs where the US Dollar is a base currency (USD/CHF, USD/CAD), pip value depends on the exchange rate: 100 000 х 0.0001 / 1.0195 = \$9.8 (pip value for USD/CHF)
🔸For the pairs that include the Japanese yen the pip value is calculated as follows: 100 000 x 0.01 / 120.65 = \$8,28 (pip value for USD/JPY).
Don't forget that you can always use Trader's Calculator for accurate computation of your Forex Trading profits based on adjusted lot size and market price value of the asset or currency pair that you are trading.

##### Calculate The Lot Size Based On The Spread in Forex

To calculate the spread in forex, you have to work out the difference between the buy and the selling price in pips. You do this by subtracting the bid price from the asking price. For example, if you're trading GBP/USD at 1.3089/1.3091, the spread is calculated as 1.3091 – 1.3089, which is 0.0002 (2 pips).
The spread in forex is a small cost built into the buy (bid) and sell (ask) price of every currency pair trade. When you look at the price that’s quoted for a currency pair, you will see there is a difference between the buy and sell prices this is the spread or the bid/ask spread.
Remember, every forex trade involves buying one currency pair and selling another. The currency on the left is called the base currency, and the one on the right is called the quote currency. When trading FX, the bid price is the cost of buying the base currency, while the asking price is the cost of selling it.

Spreads can either be wide (high) or tight (low) – the more pips derived from the above calculation, the wider the spread. Traders often favor tighter spreads, because it means the trade is more affordable.
If a market is very volatile, and not very liquid, spreads will likely be wide, and vice versa. For example, major currency pairs such as EUUSD will have a tighter spread than an emerging market currency pair such as USD/ZAR. However, spreads can change, depending on the factors explained next.

##### Folks, which in your opinion has better risk to reward - forex trading or indices? A lot of people are specialised here in both want to know the views and inputs.

I personally think (might be wrong) forex offers better risk to reward ratio as with less lot size you can let trade run longer. What's your take on this. Thanks in advance.
Edit : So my point was letting winners run in forex with less lot sizes can give you similar results as indices trading

##### Is there a way to quickly calculate lot size without using a EA in MT4 for scalping?

I currently use a risk calculator but is there a way to quickly calculate lot sizes within 10 seconds of a candle printing for scalping on the 5 Minute?

##### I’m new to forex and I have a \$200 account that I’m trying to grow. What lot size and leverage should I use?

I opened an account with osprey fx and it turns out their minimum leverage is 50x. Is this too high for a beginner?

##### Not able to customize predefined lot sizes (1, 5, 25, 100, etc) useless for Forex

I use TradingView for Forex and there doesn't seem to be any way to customize the predefined lot sizes. Since FX is traded in units, all the presets are virtually useless. It would be so much better where 1 is replaced with 1k, 5 replaced with 5k and so on.
Or if there's a way to trick TV into appending '000 to each number that's already there.
