Yes I think so, it happens in the STOP LOSS area.

When a client has a sufficiently large size they wish to trade, that would mean there is a greater risk to the client.

Therefore, in order to alleviate some of the risks, we margin large-sized trades in tiers. The margin tiers can be found on the ‘i’ tab on the deal ticket:


Tiers work on an excess basis. This means that you fill each tier's position size before entering the next tier. 

For example, using the margin tiers above, if you wish to trade a position size of 100 on AUD/USD, the first 65 contracts would be margined at 0.5% and the remaining 35 would be margined at 1%. These would then be tallied to produce the margin requirement for the trade. 
If the base currency on the account does not match the currency of the margin tiers, a conversion is required. 


Margin = Size x contract size per point x price x margin/Deposit factor

Tier 1 Margin
65 x $100 x 65.70 x 0.5% = $2,135.25 
Tier 2 Margin
$35 x $100 x 65.70 x 1% = $2,299.5 
Total Margin
$2,135.25 + $2,299.5 = $4434.75

Total margin converted back to base currency (A$ for example)
$4434.75 ÷ 0.66(current rate- 1USD=0.66AUD) = A$ 6719.3182   

Hope this gives you an idea of how the Margin increment works. If you still got questions, feel free to ask.

All the best,

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
