Maintenance Margin

What is maintenance margin?

Maintenance margin is the amount of account equity required to avoid a margin call. If your equity falls below the maintenance margin, your positions will be liquidated in order to pay back your loaned funds.

The margin call level can vary depending on the size of your open positions, but it’s typically 80%. If the margin call level is 80%, maintenance margin is 80% of used margin.
