Calculations

Alpari International charge 1.5$/lot

Commission is applied only on our ECN Account (MT4) and the ECN MT5 Account.

ECN Account (MT4): Commission is charged at 4 units of the Base currency and the conversion rate to the trading account’s currency (if applicable).

Example:

Say your account is in USD:

If you trade 1 lot USD/JPY. Commission will be $4.00

If you trade 1 lot EUR/USD. Commission will be 4.00 EUR * (exchange rate) 1.10873 = $4.43

Say your account is in EUR:

You trade 1 lot EUR/USD. Commission will be €4.00

If you trade 1 lot USD/JPY. Commission will be $4.00 / (exchange rate) 1.10873 = €3.60

Alpari International ECN MT5: Commission is fixed at $4, which is $2 when you open a position and $2 when you close it.

You can find more information on our Swap & Commissions page.

Equity = Balance + Credit + Profit/loss + Swap + Commission

Margin = Notional value / Leverage

Example: 1 lot EUR/USD at 1:1000 Leverage:

100,000 EUR / 1000 = 100 EUR

For metals = Volume * Contract Size * Open Price / Leverage

Example: 1 lot XAUUSD: 1 * 100 * 1,263.14 / 500 = $252.63

For shares = Volume * Contract Size * Open Price * Margin %

Example: 1 lot AAPL: 1 * 100 * 42.96 * 0.04 = $171.84

0.25% = 400:1

0.50% = 200:1

1% = 100:1

2% = 50:1

3% = 33:1

5% = 20:1

Bear in mind that the margin requirements for indices and commodities are fixed as per the contract specifications.

Free Margin = Equity – Used Margin

Margin Level = Equity/Margin Used x 100

Swaps = Pip value x Number of lots x Swap rate x Number of nights

Example:

$10 (pip value for 1 lot of GBP/USD) x 4 (number of lots) x 0.35 (short GBP/USD) x 4 (number of nights) = $56 swaps

Pip values can be found in our Contact Specifications page.

0.0001 or 0.01 x notional value (depends on the currency – 4th decimal for 5 decimal currencies and 2nd for 3 decimal currencies)

Example: 1 lot of EUR/USD

0.0001 x 100,000 (1 lot= 100,000) = 10 USD.

Please note that pip value is always denominated in the quote currency. You can find all information on our Contract Specifications page.
