qna on margin call


Recommended Posts

Yes your balance needs to be above 0, that's your most important number don't fall into the trap of thinking if its above 0 you can put trades on, you can but your balance needs to be big enough that if they go against you, you are still above 0, if not you get messgage from IG to add funds to your account or IG will take you out of trades, so if you had a trade you wanted to keep on it would now be taken out as a loss as funds in balance are in minus.

You need a big enough number left in the balance column that if your trades go against you you can still hold if you want to.

By the way if its a system you want to demo or try, I trade US 500 and Russell Long only, with no stops, I would not trade with no stops for gold, oil etc but am happy to do it on US indices as nothing recovers as quickly as US markets, so if I am wrong i just hold it until it goes in profit again, when I am wrong I wait until market recovers, so sometimes when market has gone against me I have to wait 4 -8 weeks before it recovers but this way means no drawdowns only overnight currency charge which is minima. You need to trade wihin your accoutn to do this as you need to make sure your balance is big enough when you get it wrong. You could try it on IG demo account  to see if it worked for you.

Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.

Our analysis suggests the current decline in the market is corrective and could turn into a full five-wave impulse move, leading to a deeper drop. Keep a close eye on the USD DXY as the Federal Reserve's meeting on Wednesday may impact the market. If 102 serves as a support for the dollar, it could result in further gains for the dollar and losses for global indices, forex, and commodities.
