What are your margin call/stop out levels?
Our margin call / stop out levels are – 100/30%. Your account may be subject to a margin call if your account equity falls to a level that is equal to the margin of your existing positions. For example, you have an open position of 1 lot on EURUSD. The margin to hold that position is 200 USD.
When you opened the account, you had a 400 USD equity on your account. When the position starts to move against you and your account equity falls to 200 USD, you will have a margin call. But your position will not be closed yet. When your account equity falls to 30% of the required margin, then the system starts to close your positions immediately.
Taking the above example, if you open a position with 200 USD of margin and your account equity falls to 60 USD, then the system starts to close your position. If you have several positions opened, then the system closes them starting from the one with the biggest loss.
If, while closing the positions, your account equity reaches a level of more than 30% of the required margin, all other positions will remain open.
Do you offer negative balance protection/cover negative balance?
Traders who use the maximum leverage available face the risk of a negative balance.
For example: Let’s assume that you have 200 USD on your account and you open 1 lot on USDJPY on Friday evening, with 1:500 leverage and 200 USD margin.
On Sunday night, the market opens 30 pips away from Friday’s closing price in a direction against you, so your position will immediately have a loss of 30 pips x 10 USD = 300 USD loss, while you have only 200 USD on your account.
The position will be automatically closed and your account would have a negative balance of -100 USD. This situation is 100% impossible when a trader uses 1:1 leverage. The higher leverage a trader uses, the more risks they take. Please also note that a negative balance may occur due to a slippage during high volatility.
Our Risk department is constantly monitoring our clients’ risk-taking and if we see that a client trades irresponsibly, then we will notify the client via e-mail and ask them to reduce risk exposure. Also, we might reduce the leverage on the client’s account.
Negative balance protection is not guaranteed. The general practice is that we cover the negative balance, but all cases are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
What is the margin call procedure for MT4?
Negative price movement can potentially lead to a margin call and the subsequent triggering of an automated margin close-out of positions. In the event that market conditions are unfavourable to you, we will set a stop-out level to reduce your maximum loss. This means that we will set a threshold of margin value, below which positions are automatically closed. This stop-out is set at 30% of the margin. For example, based on a margin of 100, the position would be automatically closed if the net equity** reaches 30 or lower.
In a nutshell, once your account net equity drops below 100% of the initial margin required to establish the open position(s), MT4 changes colour to red to indicate that you are close to or on margin call, and once your account net equity drops below 30% of margin requirements, your open positions will get closed automatically.
(**Net equity: Defined as the sum of the client’s net profit and loss on an open position(s) and client’s deposited funds.)
