Margins and Commissions

Essential information for choosing your trading account

Margin requirements

Before you begin your trading journey, it’s very important that you understand Alpari International’s margin requirements. Margin refers to the level that the funds in your account need to be at, and is otherwise known as a good faith deposit. Based on the margin requirement for the specific account, you can also calculate the maximum leverage you’ll be able to wield whilst trading. Having a clear picture of the right margin requirements prior to your trade allows you to apply good risk management. Not enough funds in your account could prompt a margin call which, in turn, could lead to the closing of a position. The margin requirements on demo accounts mimic those on the live accounts.
