Enter the maximum loss ($) and the spread width ($) into the calculator to determine the Probability of Profit.

## Probability of Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Probability of Profit.

**PoP = ML / SW * 100 **

- Where PoP is the Probability of Profit (%)
- ML is the maximum loss ($)
- SW is the spread width ($)

## How to Calculate Probability of Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Probability of Profit.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the maximum loss ($). In this example, the maximum loss ($) is given as 60.
- Next, determine the spread width ($). For this problem, the spread width ($) is given as 100.
- Finally, calculate the Probability of Profit using the equation above:

PoP = ML / SW * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PoP = 60 / 100 * 100 = 60 (%)

**Example Problem #2: **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

maximum loss ($) = 75

spread width ($) = 200

Entering these values and solving gives:

PoP = 75 / 200 * 100 = 37.5 (%)
