Calculator Definitions

The variables used in our online calculator are defined in detail below, including how to interpret the results.

Investment or Savings Amount ($)

Additional Resources

This is the original long-term investment or savings account amount that you'd like to analyze with this calculator.

Interest Rate Before Compounding (%)

This is the percentage interest rate, before any compounding is applied.

Investment Duration (Years)

This is the duration of the investment or savings.  For example, you may have a four year Certificate of Deposit, or CD, with a local bank.

This next series of values represent the compound interest rate, stated in percentages, for each of the compounding terms.  For example, we're showing the results for daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual compound interest rates along with the annual rate of interest.

Future Value With Compounding ($)

Finally, this calculator shows you the effect of compounding on your investment by figuring out the future value, in dollars, of your original investment at each of the compounding interest rates.
