  • Better risk management:
    With the Margin calculations, and Maintenance Margin per instrument with specific parameters per instrument – risk calculations are per positions are increasingly accurate and protect your per instrument trading as well as your entire account.

Leverage allows you to trade with amounts much higher than your initial investment amount, which increases the potential return of your investment. Although the ability to earn significant profits by using leverage is substantial, leverage can also work against you if the market goes in the direction opposite of your trade. Traders normally use Stop Loss & Take Profit to avoid such scenarios. So far, the leverage offered was assigned to your entire equity.


Your deposit amount: $1,000
Equity: $1,000
Leveraged offered: 1:400
Your Leveraged amount is: 1,000 x 400 = $400,000

Leverage per Instrument

Leverage in the share market tends to be much lower than in the forex market. Therefore, as we enter this market, leverage will now be offered per instrument. This means that each position will be leveraged according to the leverage assigned to the specific instrument in which you choose to open a position.

Available Balance

Having leverage per Instrument also allows you to closely monitor the real value of your trades. Each time you open a position, the real value of your investment in this position [non leveraged amount according to the leverage per instrument] is deducted from your Available Balance. This means that you may now view the remaining Available Balance of your equity in real time and in non-leveraged values (available for trading).

Equity - used Margin


Your deposit amount: $1,000
Leverage for Twitter: 1:20
You open a Twitter position for: $5,000
Your Available Balance: $1000 – [$5,000: 20] = $750


The margin parameter shows you the ratio between your equity and your net exposure (the sum of all open positions converted into the account base currency). Once your margin exceeds the allowed limit, your account is at risk of calibration and ALL of your positions or part of your trades are automatically closed. For this reason, your margin is monitored in real time.

Your deposit amount: $1,000
You open a Twitter position for: $5,000
Equity: $1,000
Your Available Balance: $750
Net Exposure: $5,000
Margin: (1000: 5,000) x 100 = 20%

Margin per Instrument

As we enter the share market with leverage per Instrument, the margin applied is also being offered per Instrument. Each Instrument will now receive its own margin limits according to the risk factor it represents and according to the leverage applied. This is in addition to the entire account margin [mentioned above] which will continue to operate as an indicator for your account status. In order to help monitor your Margin per instrument, a monitoring system has been placed to monitor your Margin per instrument; the Maintenance Margin System.


Google Margin: 0.3%
Price per Share: $1,228
Position opened: 10 Google Shares
Maintenance Margin: 0.3% x 1,228 x 10 [Margin x Exposure] = $36.8

Maintenance Margin System

The Maintenance Margin is an automatic system set to protect your account investments, and prevent your entire account from being calibrated by maintaining your margin levels per instrument. The Maintenance Margin will display the relative sum of all margins and is calculated each time a position is opened. By observing your equity and Maintenance Margin values you can monitor your distance from margin call status.


You open first a Google position - Your M. M. will be $36.8.
Then you open a 5th position for Twitter - Your Twitter M. Margin is $123.4, but will not display.
The display will be of the relative sum.

Maintenance Margin:        $160.2 = [123.4 +36.8]

Margin Call

Once the sum of positions from a particular instrument, in a particular market direction, hits the risk margin for that instrument, positions from that instrument will automatically begin to close until a sufficient margin is restored. Positions will begin to close until a sufficient margin for that instrument is achieved; thereby increasing protection of other positions as well as the account’s entire margin. The action of closing position per instrument is called Margin Call.


Maintenance Margin:        $160.2 = [123.4 +36.8]
If your equity is less than $160.2, then either your Google or Twitter positions will close (the position with the biggest loss will close).


The current real amount in the account, calculated by this formula: (Total Account Deposits) minus (Total Account Withdraws) plus (Closed Profit and Loss) plus (Open Profit and Loss) plus Bonus, converted into the Account Base Currency.
