Enter the dollar value of one-tick move ($/tick) and the total number of ticks since purchase into the calculator to determine the Commodity Profit. 

Commodity Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Commodity Profit. 

CP = DV * #T

  • Where CP is the Commodity Profit ($)
  • DV is the dollar value of one-tick move ($/tick) 
  • #T is the total number of ticks since purchase 

How to Calculate Commodity Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Commodity Profit.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the dollar value of one-tick move ($/tick). In this example, the dollar value of one-tick move ($/tick) is given as 50.
  2. Next, determine the total number of ticks since purchase. For this problem, the total number of ticks since purchase is given as 2.2.
  3. Finally, calculate the Commodity Profit using the equation above: 

CP = DV * #T

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

CP = 50 * 2.2 = 110 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

dollar value of one-tick move ($/tick) = 60

total number of ticks since purchase = 30

Entering these values and solving gives:

CP = 60 * 30 = 1800 ($)
