Free Margin

Back to Glossary

Free margin is a figure used when trading with borrowed capital from a broker (margin). Your broker will extend a certain amount of margin to you, depending on the size of your account. This margin can be used to trade larger positions than you would be able to with your capital alone. Free margin refers to the funds in your trading account that are not being held in order to collateralize any positions you currently have open.
