Spread Betting Size Calculator

Spread betting size calculator — a free tool that lets you calculate the size of the bet in pounds per point to manage your risks accurately. Spread bet size does not depend on the currency pair you trade or even your account currency, so it is pretty straightforward. The formula is: bet size = (money risked / stop-loss amount).

Please do not confuse this calculator for spread betting position size with spot Forex position size calculator.

You can set the risk as percentage of your account or as some specific amount of money. You can just fill the small form below and press the "Calculate" button:

It is a good routine to perform before placing your bets. Professional traders always control the amount they might lose in a given spread betting position.

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
