Margin Requirements and Trading Limits

As the transaction size increases, even a minor market movement might have a great impact on your Trading Account, therefore as an effort to protect your investment capital from excessive leverage, we have implemented a sophisticated Margin Requirement Policy, which you can see below:

Forex Majors Forex Minors Forex Exotics Metals Commodities Shares Indices
TIER 1 0 – 5,000,000 1:100 1 %
TIER 2 > 5,000,000 - 10,000,000 1:50 2 %
TIER 3 > 10,000,000 1:20 5 %


The maximum aggregated notional value per account permitted is 30,000,000 USD.


50% Margin Hedged applies for all symbols.

Margin Hedged Example

Assume you open a Buy and a Sell position of 1 lot each on EURUSD, with a leverage of 1:100 for a EUR Denominated Account.

Margin Hedged Requirements = [(2 * 100,000 * 50%)] /100 = 1,000 EUR

How do I calculate Margin Requirements?

To calculate the margin requirements, it is important first to calculate the USD Notional Value. 

Notional Value (USD) Formulas:     

FX Symbols: Lot Size * Contract Size * Base Currency/USD market price

NON-FX Symbols: Lot Size * Contract Size * Price * Symbol Currency/USD market price

Important Notice:

  • 1) If the leverage assigned to your account is smaller than the margin requirements leverage, your assigned leverage will apply.
  • 2) The Company reserves the right to alter the margin requirements, as well as the maximum order size at any given time without any prior notice, as it deems appropriate, due to abnormal market conditions or any other upcoming economic events/news that it believes will have an impact in the stability of financial markets.
  • 3) Shares
    Prior to earnings announcement that may cause volatility in the market and/or on a particular share, the Company reserves the right to significantly increase margin requirements (up to 50%), to protect itself and its Clients from running into negative balance.
