How to use Long and Short Position drawing tools?

This feature lets you estimate how an order will go if you go long or short, shows the Profit & Loss (PnL) and estimates risk and closing account balance when price reaches your profit target or stop loss levels.

You can practice placing orders and seeing results without actually having to place the orders — get confident and knowledgeable before risking real money in the markets.

Calculate your Position Size and Account Balance

1. Create a Long Position or Short Position drawing.

2. In properties dialog of the instrument enter your initial account size and risk amount (either in absolute numbers or as a % of your account size), and click OK to accept.


3. Drawing tool tags will show you position size (1) and account balance when positions are closed after reaching either the Take Profit (2) or the Stop Loss (3) level.

How are the Position Size and Account Balance calculated?

Long Position:
Position SizeQty = RiskSize / (EntryPrice – StopPrice)
Account Balance when position is closed after reaching the Take Profit level
Amount = AccountSize + (ProfitLevel – EntryPrice) * Qty
Account Balance when position is closed after reaching the Stop Loss level
Amount = AccountSize — (EntryPrice – StopLevel) * Qty
Short Position:
Position SizeQty = RiskSize / (StopPrice – EntryPrice)
Account Balance when position is closed after reaching the Take Profit level
Amount = AccountSize + (EntryPrice – ProfitLevel) * Qty
Account Balance when position is closed after reaching the Stop Loss level
Amount = AccountSize — (StopLevel – EntryPrice) * Qty
  • AccountSize — initial account size specified in the settings
  • RiskSize =
    • Risk, if risk is selected in absolute numbers,
    • Risk / 100 * AccountSize, if risk is selected as a percentage of account size.
