If your equity goes to zero do your positions stay open?



Hi, I was wondering what happens if my equity was to go to zero say if a position started to depreciate in value. Would the position(s) be automatically closed or would it (they) stay open?

Also, is there any way to disable a guaranteed stop on a order to open?

Hi , thanks for the post - good question.


In general, you need to always make sure your available funds (equity less margin) remains a positive balance, and should monitor your account carefully to ensure this. 


Once your equity level falls below 50% of your margin requirement, your positions will begin to be automatically closed out, both on our stop monitor and later at dealer discretion if necessary.  This is to prevent further, heavy losses from being incurred, and may mean that your overall account balance is pushed to a debit.  It's important to be aware that your positions aren't just closed out at zero equity, they could be negative.


If you'd like more detailed information about our margin policy and close-out monitor, or any specific examples, please don't hesitate to ask us.

    • It's times like in the attached image, Oct 18-dec 18. The FTSE saw declines over an extended period of time. If your view even over the short term eg days is that the market will recover the falls, in this case that isn't true. Basically I think I need to learn how to short, as long trading isn't always the right thing to do.
    • Hello Everyone, Quite the noobie question, but how exactly can I know how trusted and well intended and ICO is? I've been scouting a lot of them for quite some time and I've seen both sides of the coin. I've seen ICO's with good marketing and youtubers talking about it that just dissapeared after a few months, and I've seen ICO's with not as much publicity breaking the bar (ELROND for example). Any help would be appreciated. I would like it if we posted here our research and opinions so we can further examine ICO's if anyone else is into that stuff
