What is Margin?

Margin refers to the amount of money you need to open a trade.

Margin = Trade Size (units) / Leverage * Market Price

This amount is locked in your account until the trade is closed.


Trading 1 lot of EUR/USD using 1:100 leverage

Trade size = 100,000

Leverage = 1:100

Market price = 1.11825

Required Margin: 100,000 / 100 * 1.11825= $1118.25
