Margin Call rules

Margin Call level: Warning at 30% for Standard and Cent accounts, 40% for Interbank Standard accounts, 60% for Interbank Cent accounts, 70% for Start and 100% for ECN Pro accounts, and 70% for Live Contest Account.

Margin Call levels may be changed with prior notification if there is a necessity to do it.
Margin Call level is displayed as a percentage as follows: MC = Equity / Margin * 100%
Margin Call occurs when the account's equity reaches the Margin Call level (the percentage of margin requirements).

If the current level of margin is below Margin Call level, the account will receive an alert.

Stop Out level: Positions closed at 10% for Standard and Cent accounts, 20% for Interbank Standard, 40% for Interbank Cent accounts, 50% for Start accounts, and 80% for ECN Pro account, and 50% for Live Contest Account.

If the margin level becomes lower than Stop Out level, some unprofitable positions will be closed in order to restore the necessary margin level.

MC/SO levels may be changed on Fridays at 21:00 (Server time) to the following:

 
Standard
Cent
Start
Interbank Cent
Interbank Standard
ECN Pro
Live Contest
Margin Call 70% 70% 100% 100% 70% 100% 100%
Stop Out 40% 40% 80% 70% 40% 80% 80%

MC/SO levels usually switch back to their regular values on Mondays between 01:15 and 01:30 (Server time)

Notice: During high volatility on the market regular values of the Margin Call/Stop Out levels may be changed without any prior warning. The best way to prevent such unexpected situations is to inject additional equity to a trading account, in order to overcome any unpredictable market movements.
