Specification of Margin Calls

Margin Calls

are the conditions of the company, which show what amount of money should be on the trading account to maintain open positions.

Forex Optimum has floating margin calls for some types of trading tools in MetaTrader 4. Fixed leverage means that when trading volumes increase, leverage remains unchanged when opening new trading positions, while floating leverage margin calls are changed in accordance with the table of dependencies of the trading volume to the margin calls.

Margin calls depend on the volume of the total position for each of the group of instruments

The minimum margin calls for a group of instruments depend on the leverage established on the client’s trading account.

Thus, with a cumulative position volume within the first range, the margin calls correspond to the leverage on the account.

The volume of the cumulative position for a group of instruments is recalculated at the current prices when making any transaction with an instrument belonging to a group.

For cent-denominated accounts, the calculation of the ranges is specified in cents

Floating leverage is valid only for those types of trading instruments that are listed in the table, for trading instruments such as cryptocurrency CFDs, Stocks and ETFs, there are always fixed margin calls listed in the Trading Conditions Specifications.


During the banking rollover (23:59:00 - 00:05:00) there may be a significant expansion of the spreads due to low liquidity.

The level of pending orders is about two minimum spreads. The latest information on the level of pending orders can be found using the trading terminal.

The table shows the minimum possible margin calls that the Company can provide. Margin calls for each instrument/group of instruments depend on the individual settings of a specific trading account.


For currency pairs, spread value is indicated in points in a generally accepted format, namely, for five-digit quotes, 1 point is the fourth decimal place (0.0001), for three-digit quotes the second decimal point (0.01).

The current value of the spread is displayed with a delay and is not guaranteed by the company.

Swaps are updated daily at 11:50 pm on the time of the trading terminal.

Due to technical peculiarities, swaps are charged at 11:59 pm according to the time of the trading terminal, therefore swaps are charged from the last minute of the day.

The size of the swaps is indicated in points in accordance with the terminology of the trading platform, i.e. determined by the accuracy of the tool. For example, for EURUSD 1 pip is 0.00001.

Trading in financial instruments, including instruments of the Forex market, is a high-risk activity, coupled not only with the possibility of making a profit, but also with a risk of causing losses.

Transactions (trading) with currencies, CFDs and other instruments in the financial markets are fraught with financial losses (the size of which can be significant). If you have not fully mastered the specifics of trading in financial markets, these risks increase, so Forex Optimum recommends you ensuring that you have all necessary knowledge and/or undergo appropriate training.

Increasing personal awareness of the principles, patterns and characteristics of trading in financial markets (including Forex), as well as improving personal financial literacy is an additional guarantee of successful trading.
