    Default about value of margin

    Hi all

    I just need your opinion, if i have $25 account size and trade for 0.5 lot in Gbp/Jpy, is safe to do it?? How much margin (in %) must available for ideal trading in your mind?.

    For me trading for 20% of my account size in the forex market is good for me.

    err... you can't open trade with 25USD and with 0.5 lot and with leverage 1:200.

    Firstly, you need to send email to '[email protected]'. Ask them to increase to increase your leverage from 1:100 to 1:500.

    Once they confirmed, then you can start trade with only 0.1 lot under 25USD. That's the only lot you can open in one time.

    And only this pair; usd/jpy, usd/chf, usd/cad, eur/jpy you can trade with that account size.

    Other alternative to start trading without change your leverage, is to deposit extra money into your account. I think 100USD will be good enough for you to start trading with current leverage(1:100)..

    Good luck

    You need to send email to fxegypt support with your account number to change your leverage to 1:500 so you can start trade on some pairs not all of them

    and the used margin for 0.1 LOT = 20$ and remember there no margin call

    Used Margin = LotSize * Lot Value / Leverage
    = 0.1 * 100,000 / 500 = 20$

    If some one trade with just the bonus money then he must place positions only in the time when he is sure that trend is gonna be in his way. otherwise he would surely have to deposit money in his account.

    Roughly working it out, you would need $39.45 to open 0.1 lots gbp/usd at 1:500 leverage. Correct me if I'm wrong but you can work it out by taking the (price*10,000)/500 or $19726 / 500 = $39.45.
    If you opened the trade the wrong way with $25 on usd/jpy I'd say you would have roughly 29 pips until margin call.
