Live Account. Can I Only Use Half of My Equity?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just transferred from a demo to live spread bet account. 
Can I only use half of my equity to trade positions and orders?

I thought  I’d read that Positions could auto close if use more than 50% of my equity but I also read something else that said if you use 100% of your equity, positions could start to auto close without adding funds. 
 

Which is it please, 50% or 100%?

Thank you all in advance :).

Good morning all,

If somebody would be kind enough to guide a novice here :)

The last thing I’d like to do is place enough positions and orders to use up my 50 equity for positions to close automatically while potentially at a loss. 
Thank you :)

Hi, no you won't be closed out until your loses are eating into the margin requirement for combined trades. see this thread.
