What are the Stop-out Levels and Margin Calls?
- 70% Stop Out Level
- 100% Margin Call
You won't be allowed to open any trades after the 100% Margin Call has been met.
Once reaching the 70% Margin, a Stop-Out will occur. Your open trades will gradually start to close automatically to put your Margin Level back up to a healthy level.
For reference, the Margin Level can be calculated using the formula below:
Margin Level = (Equity / Margin) * 100
To maintain higher margin levels, you can either boost equity by adding more margin to your account or decrease the margin you're trading on by reducing the lot size of your positions.
