MARGIN CALCULATION

Trade through Trading Station platform, the margin calculation as below:

  • Initial Margin: MMR x 5/3 x lots traded
  • Maintenance Margin: MMR x lots traded
  • Liquidation Margin: MMR x 2/3 x lots traded

Minimum Margin Requirement calculates the margin requirement based on 5% of gross principal value within 50-100 points of the current market value. Maintenance Margin Requirement (MMR) value is posted in the “simple dealing rates” window on the Trading Station§ and is recalculated from time to time in order to reflect current market conditions. Under normal market conditions, MMR will be recalculated at approximately 8 am HKT each day.

 

 

Example
Buy EUR/USD in 30 lots (30,000)

 

Example 1:

USD-Denominated Account, Initial Margin: US$65.6

Initial Margin: US$65.5 x 30 (for 30 lots)=US$1,965
Maintenance Margin: US$65.5 x 3/5 x 30 (for 30 lots)=US$1,179
Liquidation Margin: US$65.5 x 2/5 x 30 (for 30 lots)=US$786

 

Example 2:

HKD-Denominated Account, Initial Margin: HK$509.5
Initial Margin: HK$509.5 x 30 (for 30 lots)=HK$15,285
Maintenance Margin: HK$509.5 x 3/5 x 30 (for 30 lots)=HK$9,171
Liquidation Margin: HK$509.5 x 2/5 x 30 (for 30 lots)=HK$6,114

Trading Station Platform:
Free Demo Account

*Required Fields

Although demo accounts attempt to replicate real-time market scenarios, they are based on simulated market environment. As such, there are key differences that distinguish it from a live account; including but not limited to, the lack of dependence on real-time market liquidity, delay or difference in pricing and spread. The operational capabilities when executing orders in a demo environment may result in atypically expedited transactions, lack of rejected orders, and/or the absence of slippage. Additionally, updates to demo account may not coincide with those of live accounts.

The risk of loss in leveraged foreign exchange trading can be substantial. You may not be suitable as you may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Leverage can work against you. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
