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 ($) • MR is the margin rate percentage (%) ## How to Calculate Trade Margin? The following example problems outline how to calculate Trade Margin. Example Problem #1 1. First, determine the total number of shares. • The total number of shares is calculated to be : 50. 2. Next, determine the price per share ($).
• The price per share ($) is measured to be: 100. 3. Next, determine the margin rate percentage (%). • The margin rate percentage (%) is found to be: 25. 4. Finally, calculate the Trade Margin using the formula above: TM = #S * PPS * MR/100 The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated: TM = 50 * 100 * 25/100 = 1250 ($)

Example Problem #2

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

total number of shares = 60

price per share ($) = 70 margin rate percentage (%) = 80 Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.TM = #S * PPS * MR/100 = ($)
