Margin requirement

Dear Members,

You can calculate the margin requirement, using the tool available on our website: Margin Calculator

Note that for the margin calculator, the following formula is applied:
(volume) x (contract size) x (asset price) / effective leverage

To find out the effective leverage value of each symbol/index, you must calculate:
account leverage / initial margin rate

The following values can be found in the specifications on your MT5 account, by right-clicking on the symbol and selecting “Specification”: volume, contract size, and initial margin rate.
