How to calculate how your margin changes if the market moves against you



Hi all,

The margin requirement for indices is calculated as

bet size x price in points x margin factor (5%)

If the market moved against you by 10 points, to calculate the new margin do you just use the above formula but you multiply by the number of points the market has moved against you to the above formula, something like below, where the last term incorporates the additional margin required? I couldn't find where the explain this on the website.

bet size x price in points at position open x margin factor (5%) x change in price (points)

Thanks for the help
