total return

definition

The profit from a business venture that includes interest income, as well as any change due to asset price fluctuations, taken over a certain time frame that is often annualized. The total return from a forex trading business can be increased due to leverage, and is usually computed from the net profit remaining in a trader's account after commissions and fees have been deducted, less equipment costs and other associated business expenses like finance costs or investor payouts.
