The margin represents the number of funds required to secure positions. When you place a trade, the margin is locked in until the trade is closed. The margin figure displayed in your account details represents the total used margin for all open trades.
To calculate your margin, you can use the formula:
Trade size in units/Leverage = Margin in Base Currency
Trade size in units/Leverage x Exchange rate = Margin in the quote currency
Leverage multiples traders’ buying power, allowing traders to control a larger investment than their capital, potentially increasing their returns while only investing a percentage of the overall value of the asset.
ABX Trade LLC offers three types of leverage depends on the type of account with a maximum leverage of 1:500.
The higher the leverage, the higher the level of risk.
Margin call at 50% margin level. It is advised that you should either close off positions to free up margin or add additional funds to increase available margin. A margin call is calculated by :
Equity / Used Margin x 100
When the margin level drops to 50% or lower, that means the entire equity of your trading account is used as collateral, and you can no longer open any other positions. This results in a negative free margin.
This means that equity divided by used margin equals 1. In other words, equity has dropped so low that it equals the used margin. For example, if stop out level of 30% means that once your equity falls to a value equal to three-tenths of your used margin, stop out(s) will begin to occur.
