## Instructions: How to use the Gain Loss Calculator on IQ Option Wiki website

To use the calculator properly, you will need to fill in some of the details about your trading. First, note what is the amount of money you have in your account at the beginning of your trading session.

Then, write in the corresponding field what amount of money you have won or lost in the first transaction.

In the above example, the initial investment amount was $10,000. The transaction ended successfully and the profit was $87.11. After you enter this information, the calculator will show you the winnings as a percentage value, and what is the amount of cash left in your trading account. Moreover, it will inform you how much you can afford to lose before the balance in the account return to the initial level.

Furthermore, you can check what is the overall profit or loss you have managed to earn in a day. To do that, just add the results from each trade you have made and write the sum in the adequate box in the IQ Option Wiki calculator.

In our example, there was one lost transaction and three winning ones. The calculations will look as follows:

P/L = 87.11 + 87.11 – 100 + 261.22 = **$ 335.44**

Now, you write your initial balance again, choose the “won” option and write $335.44. The calculator will show you this amount in the percentage value, how much money is left in your account and how much you can lose before returning to the balance you had started with.

## How is gain/loss calculated?

Calculating the percentage gain or loss is not difficult at all. If you have initial capital equal to *InitCap* and make a profit or loss equal to *Result*, you can use the formula below to calculate the percentage result.

**% GainORLoss = ( Result / InitCap ) x 100%**

So if, for example, you had $2900 to start with and you made $230 as a result of the trade, this means that your percentage profit is:

*% GainORLoss = ( 230 / 2900 ) x 100(%) = + 7.93%*

If, for example, you had $1300 and suffered a loss of $190, this means that your percentage loss is:

*% GainORLoss = ( -190 / 1300 ) x 100(%) = – 14.62%*
