Leverage and Margin Requirement

Leverage and Margin Requirement

This page provides you the leverage and margin requirements per CFD Instrument for Retail and Professional Clients when trading with Lirunex. Trading CFDs requires a minimum level of funds in your account, also known as margin requirement, which depends on the account leverage. It is important to understand the calculation of margin requirement for opening a position in order to have sufficient funds in your account and to avoid margin call and stop-out levels.

Changing of Leverage Profiles
Leverage profiles are subject to adjustment based on changes in equity or trading patterns without prior notice to clients.

Stop-Out Liquidation
All accounts are subject to a partial stop when equity/margin hits 25% or lower. The system will liquidate the largest losing trade first until your account is brought back above 25%.
