Margin and Leverage

Margin and leverage are essential aspects of forex trading, allowing traders to amplify their market exposure and potential profits while managing their capital efficiently.

What is Margin?

Margin is the deposit required to maintain open positions. You are required to maintain sufficient margin to keep current positions or open new ones. MYFX Markets has implemented the following systems in order to protect clients from unwanted losses due to sudden market fluctuations.

Leverage Available up to 500:1

We open the Forex markets to retail traders by offering leverage up to 500:1. Your trades are executed using borrowed money which means that you can take advantage of even the smallest moves in the market.

For example, 100:1 leverage allows you to trade with $10,000 in the market by setting aside only $100 as a deposit or “initial margin”. In order to prevent unwanted losses due to sudden market fluctuations, 500:1 leverage is available up to a account balance of USD 50,000 (or equivalent).

Margin Call

A Margin Call is an alert to deposit additional funds into your trading account in order to protect against the risk of adverse market movements.

As soon as your account margin level drops below 90% of the required margin, you will receive notifications in the Mailbox section of your MT4 or MT5. This is to alert you that you don’t have sufficient funds to maintain open positions.

Margin calls can be made at short notice and can be substantial. It is important for you to familiarise yourself with our Margin Call Policy. Be aware that it is the Client’s responsibility to monitor positions and make any margin payments as they become due.

Stop-out Level

At MYFX Markets, the stop-out level represents a critical equity point, set to safeguard your investments on the MT4 and MT5 platforms. This mechanism activates when your account's margin level dips below 50%, prompting MT4 and MT5 to automatically begin closing your open positions.

The closure process strategically targets positions with the largest floating losses first, effectively preventing your account balance from falling below zero and minimising potential further losses.
