Margin Requirements

Margin is the total amount of money required as a “good faith deposit” in order to create a place for your trade.The amount of margin depends on many factors: the type of account, liquidity and volatility of the asset. In addition, margin can change as prices fluctuate.

Leverage allows you to open a trade in an amount that exceeds the size of your deposit. Different types of instruments leveraged by different operating principles, but they all have one thing in common: when you use leverage, you can both make money faster and lose money faster. That's why you need to freeze the margin in your account in order to use leverage.
