    Default What is the Margin in Currency Trading?

    Unlike in stock markets, the margin deposit isnt a down payment on the purchase of equity. Instead, it is a good faith deposit. This margin allows the traders to hold a position much larger than their account value. If the funds in the account happen to fall below the margin requirements, then your broker may close some or all of your open positions. This will prevent your account from falling into a negative balance, even in a fast moving market.
    In simple terms, the margin is the amount of cash that you deposit into your account. This is there to cover any potential losses. How much money you should have in your account depends on what the margin requirement is. For example, if you want to buy $1 million USD/JPY, then you will need to have $20,000 U.S. Dollars in your account if the margin requirement is at 2%.

    This is just an added protection for you. You dont want your account to go in the negative and your broker can protect you and keep that from happening. If you dont go through a broker, then you need to watch your account yourself. If you suspect it may go into the negative, you may want to close any open positions that you still have.

    Now that you know what the margin is and how to calculate, you can keep track of your open positions and your account. Knowing about margins in currency trading can only make you a more successful trader. Do your research. Some brokers margin requirements could be more or less than 2%.
