What is Stop-Out?

Dear Members,

With stop out, if your margin level drops below Deriv’s stop out level, your positions may be closed automatically to protect you from further losses.

Your margin level is the ratio of your equity (the total balance you would have if you close all your positions at that point) to your currently used margin.

For example, if you close your position at a certain point, your equity is the total of your account balance plus the profit or loss at that point. If the ratio of this to your currently used margin is lower than Deriv’s stop-out level, stop-out may be applied.
