Margin Call Unmanageable

Guest Niyi


Guest Niyi

Margin Call as I understand is that when account or equity fall below a percentage, for instant 10%. Unfortunately IG Platform does not provide means of self monitoring your equity percentage remain before getting such call.


Options available are: 






Equity Used


The only missing factor is Equity Remain in Percentage, as the Equity Used indicate the used but the question arise; out of what percentage is equity used from

With this question answer any trader can self managed not to be victim of Margin Call.

This also apply to ProrealTime platform too, with exception to MetaTrader that provide Margin Level, which calculated the answer to the question of how much margin do I have left before potential Margin Call. 


If no extra menu needed can IG indicate by reading of Equity Used as x% used of Z% for clarity on the platform. i do think it will be helpful for the platform.
