How can I calculate a margin?
Updated over a week ago

Margin is the amount of money that a trader needs to put forward in order to open a trade. It is a part of your equity, deferred as collateral, in order to open a position and maintain it.

This ratio is calculated using the following formula:

Margin = Volume * Contract size / Leverage

You may also find the minimum margin in the Contract Specifications section of the instrument.
