Add & Withdraw Margin
Tutorial - Illustrations may differ slightly in reality
On account level (per pool), it is possible to add additional or withdraw available margin.
Why should a trader add additional Margin?
  • If position(s) of the same pool are in danger of being liquidated as it could fall below the margin requirement, it may be wise to add additional margin to prevent liquidation.
  • Trader seeks to increase his buy power i.e to open additional positions
There is also the possibility to remove available margin at the account level (by pool), but this has the direct consequence that trader's position(s) are closer to falling below the margin requirement, which would result in liquidation. Be cautious!
Should you have positions in several symbols of one trading pool, a total margin requirement would be calculated for all of your positions of the same pool. Please note accordingly, forced liquidations are executed on the account level too. In that case, you would lose all of your margin balance, i.e. your margin balance would become 0.
