Enter the SPAN margin ($) and the exposure margin ($) into the Future Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Future Margin.

## Future Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Future Margin.

**FM = SM + EM**

- Where FM is the Future Margin ($)
- SM is the SPAN margin ($)
- EM is the exposure margin ($)

## How to Calculate Future Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Future Margin.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the SPAN margin ($).
- The SPAN margin ($) is given as: 125.

- Next, determine the exposure margin ($).
- The exposure margin ($) is provided as: 75.

- Finally, calculate the Future Margin using the equation above:

FM = SM + EM

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

FM = 125 + 75 = 200.00 ($)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

SPAN margin ($) = 160

exposure margin ($) = 80

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

FM = SM + EM** = ?**
