Hello,

I can`t figure out how to calculate my equity at the end of each day with the provided information from my statement. Basically i want to be able to make the same graphic(with both balance & equity line) here in the site, but in my worksheet. For example: i`ve opened position at 22:00 and closed it at 00:04 with loss . Should i consider the swap?. Which price(at what time,open or close price etc.) i should get as my mark for calculating what was my equity before the new day starts. Eventually to get the same results as they are here in the site( i hope they`re accurate). I know that the answer lays in my question, but what ever i make i can`t get the same results as here. Hope you can clear me out that confusion.

Thank you,
Regards

Equity = balance + floating position
Everything should be included, it may help to think of it as the amount you would get if you closed your account at this very moment.

Hello TraderHotch,

I know that equity is = balance + floating position. How to calculate that floating position (which price to be my mark). I just can`t get the same results as in myfxbook. Simply how 'myfxbook' calculates the floating positions?

Thank you,
Regards

Well, the sum of the P/L of all your open trades is your floating profit.

To get individual profit you do size/pip*pips from open.

Your broker probably does this.

If you show us what your open positions are and what myfxbook is quoting it can probably be sorted out.

I can't really understand that as you just gave figures, without telling what they mean but I'm guessing...

Assuming it's in USD.

$500 deposit, then a further $253.04 deposited throughout the day.

Sold 0.1 EUR/USD at 1.3837 and closed at 1.3987 (150 pip loss, so $150 loss).
Bought 0.1 USDCHF at .9633, and closed at .9623 (10 pip loss, $10.39 loss).

This gives you 592.65 as balance, so there's a dollar missing somewhere.

Is it that your open position is 13 pips off, and so there's another 7 gone, I'm not sure. To quote Asimov:
