The term of a margin* obligation begins at the time you “open” the corresponding spot position on margin. This is handy to know since each extension of margin we make to you is subject to a margin obligation term limit.
To check the “opening time” of a spot position on margin:
- Navigate to the Positions-tab under the Trade-tab on your account.
- Ensure that you are looking at the positions by Trade or by Order.
- Note that each position has its opening time in the Date column. This column can be sorted to view the oldest position.
You are expected to keep track of your open spot positions on margin and fully close them within the applicable margin obligation term limit. If you fail to do so, you authorize and instruct us to sell or liquidate assets in your account in order to close the position on your behalf. Click here for more information.
