while the account equity is lower than account balance, try below equation:
(Current Equity / Current Account Balance) *100 -100 * (-1)

My broker doesnt have bonus, my equity is same as my balance if no open trade. And if I open a trade, the equity will below my balance. How can I trade without any drawdown?

The moment you open a buy trade you are in drawdown (the spread,) you buy at the Ask  and close at the Bid
