Margin Call

Back to Glossary

When trading on margin there’s always the chance that a trade will go against you. Should this happen, the amount that you owe your broker rises. When you use up all of your available margin (i.e. your margin level reaches 100%) you will receive a margin call. A margin call is when your broker requests that you deposit more money into your account as collateral for your open positions.
