When I open my a/c I see something like the following FUNDS £4,549.69. Margin £3,3329.45. Availability £608.32.
My question is what is the LEVERAGE (is it 30 x total funds) and how is the above worked out. I am wanting to test a strategy with no stops so its vital to know how to prepare for a possible spike. In the forum its suggested that one only uses two thirds of the funds. Things appear so complicated and yet surely there is a simple mathematical solution to prepare for a spike.
