Margin requirements

On this page you will find a list of margin requirements in BidAsko. During trade on your account should be maintained given the level of funds (necessary margin), as well as the well-known expression guarantee capital. The calculation of the margin level allows you to apply the correct risk management strategy and avoid the undesirable situation “Margin call”, when due to a lack of margin in your account all open positions are automatically closed. Margin requirements on demo accounts are the same as on the corresponding real accounts.

Please note: Leverage / Margin requirements may be changed according to the norms of your country of residence legislation. maximum leverage is 1 for residents of Poland: 100.

Please note:

  1. If you open, close, or change the position of the currency pairs on Standard.MT4 Cent.MT4 accounts or an hour before the close of the trading session on Friday, the leverage is changed to 1: 100. By the opening of the trading session, the leverage will be changed on the basis of the total volume of open positions on the account.
  2. The size of the leverage / margin requirements are subject to change according to the norms of your country of residence legislation. maximum leverage is 1 for residents of Poland: 100.

The calculation of the level of the margin with floating leverage

accounts for standard/ecn/mt5

step 1

Suppose you open a position №1 buy 5 lots GBPUSD 1.4584 to USD account.

The nominal value of the position is equal to: 5 * 100 000 * 1.4584 = 729 200 USD. Since the nominal value of USD 200 729 is not greater than the threshold of 1 200 000 USD, it is proposed that the leverage is 1: 1000.

Margin is: 729 200/1000 = 729.20 USD.

step 2

You open position №2 buy 20 lots EURUSD 1.3175.

The nominal value of the position is as follows: 20 * 100 000 * 1.3175 = 2.635 million USD.

The aggregate nominal value of the position and the position №1 №2 is:

729,200 (for position №1) + 2,635,000 (for №2 position) = 3,364,200 USD.

Thus, the aggregate nominal value of open positions exceeds the threshold of 1 200 000 USD, but less than the threshold of 7 million USD.

Therefore, for the first 1 200 000 USD leverage will be 1: 1000, and the remaining 2,164,200 USD will leverage is 1: 500.

As a result, the margin is: + 1 200 000/1000 2164 200/500 = 5 528,4 USD.

step 3

Suppose you open a position №3 buy 40 lots GBPUSD 1.4590.

The nominal value of the position: 40 * 100 000 * 1.4590 = 5.836 million USD.

The aggregate nominal value for all three positions is:

729,200 (for position №1) + 2,635,000 (for №2 position) + 5,836,000 (for №3 position) = 9,200,200 USD.

Now the aggregate nominal value of open positions exceeds the threshold of 7 000 000 USD, but less than 12 000 000 USD.

Thus, the proposed leverage will be 1: 1000 for the first 1 200 000 USD, for the next 5,800,000 USD leverage will be 1: 500, and the remaining amount will leverage is 1: 200.

As a result, the margin is: 1 200 000/1000 + 5 800 000/500 + 2 200 200/200 = 23 801 USD.

step 4

Suppose you open a position №4 Buy 25 lots EURUSD 1.3164.

The nominal value of the position is as follows: 25 * 100 000 * 1.3164 = 3 291 000 USD.

The aggregate nominal value for all four positions is:

729,200 (for position №1) + 2,635,000 (for №2 position) + 5,836,000 (for the position №3) + 3,291,000 (for №4 position) = 12,491,200 USD.

Now the aggregate nominal value of open positions exceeds the threshold of 12 000 000 USD, but less than 17 000 000 USD.

Thus, the proposed leverage will be 1: 1000 for the first 1 200 000 USD, for the next 5,800,000 USD leverage will be 1: 500, for the next 5 000 000 USD leverage will be 1: 200, and the remaining amount leverage will be 1: 100.

As a result, the margin is: 1 200 000/1000 + 5 800 000/500 + 5 000 000/200 + 491 200/100 = 42 712 USD.

step 5

Suppose you open a position №5 Purchase of 40 lots of EURUSD 1.3188

The nominal value of the position is as follows: 40 * 100 000 * 1.3188 = 5 275 200 USD.

The aggregate nominal value of all the five positions is as follows:

729,200 (for position №1) + 2,635,000 (for №2 position) + 5,836,000 (for the position №3) + 3,291,000 (for №4 position) + 5,275,200 (for №5 position) = 17 766 400 USD ..

Thus, the proposed leverage will be 1: 1000 for the first 1 200 000 USD, for the next 5,800,000 USD leverage will be 1: 500, for the next 5 000 000 USD leverage will be 1: 200, for the following 5000 000 USD will leverage is 1: 100, and the remaining amount will be equal to the leverage 1:25.

As a result, the margin is: 1 200 000/1000 + 5 800 000/500 + 5 000 000/200 + 5 000 000/100 + 766 400/25 = 118 456 USD

step 6

Suppose you close the position №2 (Buy 20 lots EURUSD 1.3175)

The nominal value of the position is as follows: 2.635 million USD.

The aggregate nominal value for all four positions (assuming the second position was closed) is:

729,200 (for position №1) + 5,836,000 (for №3 position) + 3,291,000 (for the position №4) + 5,275,200 (for №5 position) = 15,131,400 USD.

When №2 closed position, then reduced the total nominal value of the position, which leads to a decrease in the amount of the required margin. The part that exceeds the threshold of 17 000 000 USD and which refers to the leverage 1:25 withdrawn from settlements in the first place.

As a result, the margin is: 1 200 000/1000 + 5 800 000/500 + 5 000 000/200 + 3 131 400/100 = 69 114 USD
