Hi, bit late to be asking this question, but I've never noticed it before.

I have a trade running and the Margin is changing as the trade increases or decreases in value.  

Can someone explain what is happening here?  Thanks.

yes, you need an 'initial' margin to open a trade and a maintenance margin to maintain the open trade;
