How do I calculate Margin Required?

Updated 2 weeks ago

For Forex Pairs, it is calculated as follows:

Lot Size * Contract Size / Leverage or * Margin %. 
The result is always in the instrument's currency.

For Metals, Energies, Equity Indices and Stocks it is calculated as follows:

Lot Size * Contract Size * Opening Price / Leverage or * Margin %.
The result is always in the instrument's currency.
Please note that leverage applies for all instruments. This means you must calculate each tier separately and sum up the results.
