Arbitrage Calculator – Optimize Your Profits

This tool calculates potential profits from arbitrage opportunities in various markets.

Arbitrage Calculator

This Arbitrage Calculator can help you determine the potential profit from exploiting price differences of the same asset on two different markets. Simply input the buy and sell prices on both markets, the trade size, and the corresponding market fees.

How to Use

  1. Enter the buy price in Market 1.
  2. Enter the sell price in Market 1.
  3. Enter the buy price in Market 2.
  4. Enter the sell price in Market 2.
  5. Specify the trade size (amount of the asset you want to trade).
  6. Enter the fee percentage for Market 1.
  7. Enter the fee percentage for Market 2.
  8. Press the “Calculate” button to see the result.

How It Calculates the Results

The calculator factors in the fees for both markets and computes the final buy and sell prices. Then, it evaluates two arbitrage opportunities:

  1. Buying on Market 2 and selling on Market 1
  2. Buying on Market 1 and selling on Market 2

It calculates the potential profits for both scenarios and displays the maximum possible profit.


Please note that this calculator assumes static fees and does not consider potential slippage or delays in execution that could impact the realized profit. Market conditions can change rapidly, and the calculated profit might not be achievable in real-time trading.
