Margin Call Policy

Margin Call Policy

Trading accounts with ThinkMarkets will automatically experience a margin call if the criteria below are met. It is important to note that proper risk management and placing of stop losses reduces the need for a margin call on a traders account. We advise all clients and traders to strictly adhere to margin requirements when trading.

  • Minimum Margin Requirements on Open Positions must be maintained by the customer at all times.

  • All open positions are subject to liquidation by ThinkMarkets should the Minimum Margin Requirement fail to be maintained.

  • Margin requirements may change at anytime. ThinkMarkets will do its best to inform the customer about any projected changes by email and via the trading platform's message system at least a week before changes go into effect.

  • ThinkMarkets will liquidate all Open Position in a customer's account if the total equity, at any time, equals or falls below 50% of the Used Margin. Positions will be closed based on the best execution prices available at the time to ThinkMarkets.

  • The placing of Stop Loss Orders, used to minimise losses, is the clients responsibility.
