Standard
Leverage: 50:1

Margin Requirement: $2,000 per 1 lot trade

*Please note that you can trade as little as 0.01 lots in both types of accounts. 0.01 lots in a standard account is a micro lot. 0.01 lots in a mini account is a nano lot.

The amount of margin required to place a trade depends on which currency pair you are trading. If the currency pair starts with USD then it would simply require $200 margin for 1 mini lot trade, or $2,000 margin for 1 standard lot trade. If the currency pair does NOT start with USD then you would take the base currency, and find the pair that is matched with USD. Take the current price for that pair which is matched with USD and move the decimal to the right 3 spaces. This will tell you the current margin requirement for a 1 standard lot trade. Move the decimal to the right 2 spaces, and this will tell you the current margin requirement for a 1 mini lot trade, etc.

For example: If you are trading the USD/JPY it would require $200 margin for 1 mini lot trade.

If you want to trade the EUR/USD and the current price was 1.4642 then you would move the decimal to the right 2 spaces and the margin required for 1 mini lot is $292.84.

If you want to trade the GBP/JPY and the current price of the GBP/USD is 1.6281 then you would move the decimal to the right 2 spaces and the margin required for 1 mini lot is $325.62.

 

You will receive a margin call liquidation once your Margin Level percentage reaches 100% or lower. Your margin level percentage is the last number listed on your balance bar at the bottom of your platform. The calculation for this is:
(Equity/Margin) x 100 = Margin Level Percentage

You will receive a margin call liquidation when the equity in your account is equal to the margin you are using in your open trades.

Example:

Balance: 1,000.00
Equity: 997.00
Margin: 100.00
Free margin: 897.00
Margin level: 997.00%

In this example, the client is using $100 for margin. The client will receive a margin call liquidation when the equity falls to $100 or lower.

In order to provide our customers with better spreads, IBFX updated its servers to a 5 decimal price feed. This fractional pip pricing allows us to provide more competitive fractional spreads with the same great execution.

Leverage determines how much margin is required to place a trade.

Example: If your mini account was previously set to 100:1 leverage, then it required $100 margin to place a 1 lot trade. Now with 50:1 leverage you will need $200 margin to place the same 1 mini lot trade if the currency pair starts with USD. If it does not start with USD then please refer to "How much margin is required to place a trade.
