Margin Call Level @ 50%

A margin call is calculated by equity / used margin x 100. It is advised that you should either close off positions to free up margin or add additional funds to increase available margin.

Margin Call Alerts

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.

Stop Out Level @ 30% / 50%

This means that equity divided by used margin equals 1. In other words, equity has dropped so low that it equals the used margin. 30% for ECN and PREMIUM Account, 50% for ECN COPYTRADE Account. 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.
