Compounding Calculator

Use our compounding calculator to accurately simulate how a trading account can grow over time with a chosen gain percentage per trade.

What is a Compounding Calculator

A compounding calculator is useful to simulate how compounding the interest received from a savings account, or the profits from winning trades, with a set percentage, can make an account grow over time. It works by simulating the compounding, in other words, the reinvesting, of the chosen gain percentage of the account’s total equity.

The use of this calculator can demonstrate traders how powerful gains compounding can be, and, that even a moderate gain percentage of 2% (for example) per trade, can turn an account’s initial capital into a substantial amount of equity over time.

How to Use the Compounding Calculator

Starting balance: This represents the initial account equity. Let’s use, for our example, a starting balance of 1,000 units of any deposit currency.

Number of periods: In this field traders can simulate a winning strike of x consecutive winning trades. Please note: the period is every time you receive an interest on holdings, or, close a trade in profit, etc. For example:

The bank pays 5% interest on the savings account, every month = period is 1 month.
Binance crypto exchange pays 10% interest on BTC, every day = period is 1 day.
An investor trades XAU/USD and wins 2% return, each trade = period is each trade.

Let’s use, for our example, a series of 6 consecutive winning trades.

Gain % per period: The crucial field of the calculator, used to simulate the gain percentage per any period of compounding. It can be used by the trader who does 5 daily trades with a target of 0.05% return per trade. It can also be used by a trader doing 5 weekly trades and targeting 1% return per trade, even a long-term trader, doing 12 trades per year and targeting 5% return per trade. For our example we will use a gain percentage per period of 2%.

Then, we hit the “Calculate” button.

The results: “The Ending Balance” after compounding the gains of 6 consecutive winnings and the “Total Gain” percentage. For this case, an initial equity of 1,000 units, of any account currency, after compounding the gains of 6 consecutive winnings, is now 1,126.16 units.

This means that by compounding just 6 winning trades and taking a low profit percentage of only 2% per trade, the account balance has grown by 12.6%.

On the results above there’s also a detailed breakdown of how each compounded trade increased the account balance, how much each compounded trade is in total percentage and the ending account balance.

Forex trading, also known as foreign exchange trading or currency trading, refers to the buying and selling of currencies on the global foreign exchange market. It is a decentralized market where participants trade currencies with the aim of profiting from the fluctuations in their exchange rates. Forex trading involves the simultaneous purchase of one currency and the sale of another, with the expectation that the value of the currency being bought will increase in relation to the one being sold. This market operates 24 hours a day, five days a week, and offers opportunities for individuals and institutions to speculate, hedge, or engage in international business transactions. Forex trading offers high liquidity, allowing traders to easily enter and exit positions, and provides potential for substantial profits, but also carries inherent risks.
