How do I use the RKSV Brokerage Calculator?

The RKSV Brokerage Calculator is, by far, the most popular tool that our customers use on our website. It is easy to use, transparent, and mimics a contract note so that the user understands exactly what his breakeven for any trade is. He can specify the plan type he is on, the segment, buy price and quantity, and sell price and quantity. The result is that the calculator shows you exactly how much you would make on a trade after all costs are taken into account.

Costs are broken down in detail- so what you see, is what you get!
