What is RoE and how it's calculated?

Return on Equity (ROE%), is an indicator which reflects the current NET performance of an open trade.

  • Positive ROE means that the trade is currently profitable

  • Negative ROE means that the trade is currently at a net loss currently

ROE is calculated based on the trader’s margin reserved for a trade, using the following formula:

  • ROE% = (Unrealized PnL + Realized PnL - CloseOrderCommission) / Margin

For example, if a trader has used $100 as Margin for a position, a ROE value of +20% will mean that the trade is essentially at a net profit of $20.

ROE always takes into account not only the flat PnL from the price movement of the asset being traded - but also any associated trade fees and funding. When initially opening a position, the ROE% indicator will show a negative value. This is due to the ROE% indicator taking into account the opening and closing trade fees which are incurred for the position.

This provides traders with a fully transparent and precise ROE indicator.
