Close and Take Your Profit? At this point, you could decide to let your position run or close it in order to take a profit. In this example you opt to settle your position by selling the market at 2685.6p.
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(2685.6p - 2627.8p) x £3 per penny
57.8p x £3 per penny
Your Trading Profits (or Losses) = £173.40 profit
