Forex Margin Requirements - GRAND FXNES

What is Margin?

Margin can be thought of as a good faith deposit required to maintain open positions. This is not a fee or a transaction cost, it is simply a portion of your account equity set aside and allocated as a margin deposit. Keep in mind that trading on margin can both positively and negatively affect your trading experience as both profits and losses can be dramatically amplified. You can keep track of your Used and Usable margin in the Accounts Window of the Trading Station.


GRAND FXNES is committed to increasing customer profitability. We know that our traders are right more than 50% of the time, however many traders lose more money on losing trades than they make on winning trades. GRAND FXNES believes that the Smart Margin Watcher feature, one of the newest Trading Station features, can help you stay ahead of Margin Calls and ultimately put you in a better position to trade.

The Smart Margin Watcher was designed to monitor your positions and ALERTS you if the market goes against your trades and your account equity drops below your margin requirements.

Essentially the Smart Margin Watcher can give you a buffer between your Margin Warning and liquidation, allowing you to either deposit more funds or close out of positions to potentially avoid a margin call.
