    Average P/L in $ = Sum of each trade profit & loss $ / Total number of trades

    Average P/L in % = sum of each trade % profit & loss / total number of trades

    Average profit = Sum of profitable trades $ / Number of win trades

    Average Loss = sum of losing trades $ / number of losing trades

    Win % = Number of win trades / total number of trades * 100

    Average % return (per week, month etc) = % profit / number of weeks

    Forecast full year % = weekly % * 52

    weekly percent % * 4 weeks = % for month

    Average return per trade = (Ending Equity - Starting Equity) / number of trades

    Gain % = (Gain$ / Buy Price) * 100

    Loss % = (Loss$ / Buy Price) * 100

    Gain% or Loss% = 100 * (End Equity - Start Equity) / Start Equity

    To average this over a number of trades you divide the result by the number of trades.

    Profit / starting balance x 100

    Turns dollar profit into percentage profit

    Weekly profit percent = profit for the week / balance at the start of the week x 100

    P/L for each trade

    P/L % = P&L / Account size

    Change weekly percent % * 4 weeks = % for month to the following:

    weekly percent % * 4.348 = % for month

    In business and reporting: there is not 4 weeks in a month, its 4.348
