Anyone can use XM’s calculator for free, regardless of whether they have an account with XMtrading. XM has a free tool called the All-in-One Calculator that allows you to calculate margin requirements, pip values and swaps. You can use it even if you are not an XM user, so feel free to use it.
XM’s all-in-wine calculator is a calculator that allows you to calculate the “necessary margin”, “pip value”, and “swap” all at once by simply entering information such as trading instruments, leverage, and number of trading lots. Especially those who are not used to trading yet will have many opportunities to use this tool.
From the home screen, select “Learn FX” → FX calculation tool.
For the English version, you can go to “TradingTool” → “Forex Calculators”.
Let’s select the all-in-one calculation tool as the screen will be transitioned.
