Trading of complex financial products, such as Stocks, Futures, Foreign Exchange (‘Forex’), Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’), Indices, Options, or other financial derivatives, on ‘margin’ carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and, therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or doubts. Please carefully read our full ‘General Risk Disclosure’ and ‘Risk Disclosures for Financial Instruments & Investment Services’.

Example 1: Buying a Forex Major product

Notional Position Value, USDLeverage Rate
up to 25.0001:200
25.000 - 100.0001:100
Over 150.0001:10
  • Account balance is 12.000 USD.
  • Potential Buy position: Buy 2 lots EURUSD at 1.06789
  • The notional position value in the account's currency (USD) is 2 lots x 100,000 x 1.06789 = 213.578 USD,
  • Therefore, a leverage of 1:200 is applied to this position and the margin requirements are calculated as 213.578 / 200 = 1,067.89 USD.
