Margin and Leverage

Margin

Margin is defined as the amount of money required in your account to place a trade using leverage. The amount that is required to be tied up as a security is called 'margin requirement' and will be free to use once a position is closed.

Margin can be calculated by dividing your trade size by your leverage. For example, your trading leverage is 1:100 and you have an open trade for $10,000, the margin requirement to support that trade would be 10,000/100 = $100.

At Top Pro Market we perform risk monitoring and negative balance protection methodologies at all times.




Leverage

Leverage is also a very critical factor that is associated with margin when trading the markets.

A leverage amount or percentage gives you the opportunity to invest more funds than you initially placed in your trading account.

For example, with a 1:200 leverage you can manage a $200,000 investment with $1,000, meaning that the trading funds would be 200 times greater than your deposited amount.

You can monitor your free and used margin at all times. Our margin call policy ensures and guarantees that our clients’ balances will not be over exposed.
