Why can't I see the profits on my leverage trade?

Leverage does not change the amount of your own funds you invest, but the trade's exposure and therefore the number of units in the trade. Therefore, the calculation of profit and loss on a leveraged trade is not based on the amount of the position, but rather on the number of units.


To calculate the profit or loss of your trade, you need first to calculate the amount of units, which includes the leverage.
