What is Margin?
A margin call is an alert to deposit additional funds into your trading account. Whenever your account margin falls below 80% of the required margin, a margin call warning will be sent via email. The purpose of this notice is to inform you that you do not have sufficient funds to keep open positions.
Your stop-out level determines at what equity level open positions will be closed automatically. At Icon FX when your account margin drops below 50%, the open positions are closed. Margin calls can be made at short notice and can be substantial. It is important for you to familiarise yourself with our Margin Call Policy.
