Margin Explaination


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am very new to the platform, I have opened a Demo account to trial my first ever trading strategy. My confidence and knowledge is growing with each trade that I make so I am nearing transferring to a live account and depositing a nice wallet to try my hand, however I have been trying to figure out how the margin works and if I am able to reduce the margin? I fear leverage as I know that the losses can be amplified, I just want some clarification on what the margin actually represents on the platform? 

I thank anyone in advance for their assistance.

Hi @Trader9918, the margin requirements for Forex can be find on : https://www.ig.com/au/help-and-support/cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-igs-forex-cfd-product-details

Unfortunately, you won't be able to change the margin requirements as they have been recently changed as per ASIC regulations, more details here.

CFDs are leveraged products, meaning you don’t have to pay the full value of your exposure to deal. Instead, you only need to put up a fraction of your trade’s total value to open your position. This opening amount is called initial margin – it is also sometimes referred to as deposit margin.

Finally, the margin requirements can be find on the link above or on the platform on the deal ticket and the 'info' tab then 'Margin requirements':

All the best - Arvin

    • With BTC making its exponential highs, a couple new projects are springing up incredibly fast. The narratives popping up right now are gaming and AI projects. Through my research, I found a new gaming project with some good gaming use cases and tokenomics. The project is, flappyMoonbird. It is a web3 game metaverse with a Player vs Player based on a bird themed scope. At this moment, the project’s team has announced 3 games; Racing bird, AI birdnopoly and FlappymoonBird inclusive, these have gameplay and demo released. The game has also incorporated Play2Earn to its framework, while playing users are given latitude to play games casually to earn mystery boxes, and its native $FMB tokens and other prizes. After reading exhaustively about this project, I was on the lookout for where to buy it from. Reliable platforms like bitget have expressed intent to list it through its deposit to list activity. Consequently, by depositing some amount of it ($FMB) on the CEX, the platform will list the token and this will undoubtedly provide the project with further exposure just the same way it has done for some of its popular projects. From my personal experience, projects that are often incubated by the CEX in this manner turnout to perform exceedingly well. Taking a cue from projects like $CSIX and $GRIMACE that went through same procedure, after they got listed, the projects performed quite well and are still performing with very good price action thus far.  On a safer note, if the project doesn’t scale through the listing procedure, all funds can be withdrawn seamlessly. The project looks quite promising and I think with the platforms concerted efforts, it will get listed along with good price action.
