What is a margin call?

Article author
Capital.com Customer Support

A margin call is sent when the ratio between your equity and required margin fails to meet our requirements. A margin call is a key risk management tool preventing your losses from piling up.

If your equity drops below 100% of the required margin, you will no longer be able to open new trades or place orders.

If your equity to margin ratio drops below 75%, you’ll receive the second margin call. You still will not be able to open new trades or place orders.

If the equity is equal to or less than 50% of the required margin, it means you have reached the minimum allowed margin level and your trades will be gradually closed out.
