FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Margin refers to the amount of money needed in your account to maintain an open position.

Here is the formula to calculate the Margin:
Volume of order * Contract/Lot Size * Price / Leverage

Margin Level indicates how “healthy” your trading account is. It’s the ratio of your Equity to the Used Margin of your open positions, shown as a percentage. No need to do the math yourself though – check out our helpful calculator above.

Margin Call is a notification which tells you that you need to deposit more money in your trading account (or close losing positions) to free up more margin. It’s shown as a fixed percentage and can be spotted in the Account Specifications of your trading account. When the market moves against your open positions, your margin level falls. Once the margin falls to the Margin Call percentage, you’ll get a Margin Call warning in your Terminal.

If you have a margin requirement of 5%, it means you are trading with leverage of 20:1. We offer leverage based on your knowledge and experience. Feel free to chat this through with your Account Service Manager.
