In this short article, we will talk about two types of profits while trading options at Olymp Trade. One is an expected profit and the other is a profit after a sale.
In the right side of the platform, there are some numbers visible. You will find there both, the expected profit and the profit after the sale. You will also see the amount of this particular investment.
The expected profit is nothing else like the amount of money you will gain or lose when the trade will finish. If you open an up option and the closing price will be bigger than the opening price of an asset, the expected profit will be in green colour. The same works for a down option, that is if the closing price will be smaller than the opening price.
However, if you open an up option but the closing price will be lower than the opening price or in the case of a down position, the closing price will be higher than the opening price, the amount of the expected profit will be displayed in red.
The profit after the sale indicates the amount of money that will be added to your account balance after selling trade at this precise moment. It will grow together with the expected profit. The bigger chances the trade will end successfully, the higher profit after the sale.
A possibility of selling the trade before its expiration may sometimes protect you from a huge loss. Be careful, however, because the market is unpredictable. It can happen that the situation will change rapidly and you will discover that you have sold the trade for too little. Always analyse the market and search for a perfect entry point before you open a position.
