Automatic Calculation of Trade Cost

I'm at a stage where it would be beneficial to automatically calculate how much a trade is going to cost based on entry level, stop loss, take profit and lot size - to name a few. If this could be shown on the MT4 chart that would be brilliant to see how the chart works with the figures.

I have sourced a few paid options and free indicators but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what they use? I am terrible at maths and although I should know this stuff like the back of my hand it would be helpful to have a clear readout of how the numbers work alongside the charts. Presently I am trying to focus my attention on reading charts and deciding when and how to trade.

Can't understand what exactly you mean. Trade calculations are the first what is MT4 fitted out with. They are carried out automatically in MT4, it is shown in relative columns.

The trade calculations are provided after the trade is made, it would be great to have these available prior to making a trade.
