How to calculate the margin requirement for a foreign exchange transaction:
Margin requirement = trading volume / leverage of currency pair * current exchange rate
An account has a leverage of 1: 500 and trades with a volume of 1 standard lot (100,000 units) EURUSD, the current exchange rate is 1.2556 then:
Margin Requirement = $100.000 USD / 500 * 1,2556 = $251.12 USD
In the 23: 55-00: 05 (server hour) interval, spread increase and reduced liquidity may occur as a result of the rollover of the bank daily. In the event of insufficient liquidity / charges during the rollover period, excessive fees and slippage may occur. Therefore orders will not be made during these times.
