Margin Calculator

Our margin calculator helps you calculate the margin needed to open and hold positions.

Enter your account base currency, select the currency pair and the leverage, and finally enter the size of your position in lots.

The calculation is performed as follows:

Required Margin = Trade Size / Leverage * Account Currency Exchange Rate


Volume in Lots: 5 (One Standard Lot = 100,000 Units)
Leverage: 100
Account Base Currency: USD
Currency Pair: EUR/USD
Exchange Rate: 1.365 (EUR/USD)

Required Margin = 500,000 /100 * 1.365
Required margin is $6825.00 USD
