The trading margins are subject to change without notice. The margins listed below may not reflect the most recent requirements. Please refer to the trading platform to view the current margins. The following is a set of examples that provide an explanation on the margin based on different base currency pairs.

USD Base Currency
Lot Size / Leverage = Margin
10,000 / 100 = 100 USD (100:1 leverage)
10,000 / 200 = 50 USD (200:1 leverage)

USD Non-Base Currency
(Current Market Quote √óLot Size) / Leverage = Margin
(1.12262 x 10,000) / 100 = 112.26 USD (100:1 leverage)
(1.12262 x 10,000) / 200 = 56.13 USD (200:1 leverage)

Non-USD Cross Currency
Current Market Quote √óLot Size) = Currency Quote

The sample below is based on a market quote of 134.745 for EURJPY.

We also obtained the market quote for USDJPY (119.721) and EURUSD (1.13548).
134.745 x 10,000 = 1,347,450 JPY

JPY Currency Quote / USDJPY market quote = USD Currency Quote
1,347,450 / 119.721 = 11,254.91 USD

EURUSD market quote x Lot Size = 2nd USD Currency Quote
1.13548 x 10,000 = 11,354.80 USD

Largest USD Currency Quote / Leverage = Margin
11,354.80 / 100 = 113.54 USD (100:1 leverage)
11,354.80 / 200 = 56.77 USD (200:1 leverage)

Note: All CHF pairs are double the amount of margin listed above.
