# Partial Close Of An Order - Maths

160

I'm hoping someone can help me out with understanding the maths of partial closes in MT4 and their value.

Lets say I am risking 2.5% of my capital and trading 1.0 lots at a SL of 50 pips

If I partial close at 0.50 pips with a TP of 25 then this is 1.25% gain????

If I partial close at 0.25 pips with a TP of 25, then this is a % gain of what???

If I then partial close the remaining 0.25 pips with a TP of 50, then this is a % gain of what????

Any help with this would be appreciated.

S/L: 50.0 pips × 1.00 lots = 50.000 piplots (equivalent to 2.5% Risk based on S/L size, not on margin)

Partial T/P: 25.0 pips × 0.50 lots = 12.500 piplots (equivalent to 0.625% Gain = 2.5% Risk × 12.500 / 50.000 )

Partial T/P: 25.0 pips × 0.25 lots = 6.250 piplots (equivalent to 0.3125% Gain = 2.5% Risk × 6.250 / 50.000 )

Final T/P: 50.0 pips × 0.25 lots = 12.500 piplots (equivalent to 0.625% Gain = 2.5% Risk × 12.500 / 50.000 )
