Enter the total number of shares, the price per share ($), and the margin rate percentage (%) into the Trade Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Trade Margin.

## Trade Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Trade Margin.

**TM = #S * PPS * MR/100**

- Where TM is the Trade Margin ($)
- #S is the total number of shares
- PPS is the price per share ($)
- MR is the margin rate percentage (%)

## How to Calculate Trade Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Trade Margin.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the total number of shares.
- The total number of shares is calculated to be : 50.

- Next, determine the price per share ($).
- The price per share ($) is measured to be: 100.

- Next, determine the margin rate percentage (%).
- The margin rate percentage (%) is found to be: 25.

- Finally, calculate the Trade Margin using the formula above:

TM = #S * PPS * MR/100

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

TM = 50 * 100 * 25/100 = 1250 ($)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

total number of shares = 60

price per share ($) = 70

margin rate percentage (%) = 80

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.TM = #S * PPS * MR/100 =** **($)
