What is cross margining?
Updated over a week ago

Cross margining is the process of offsetting positions whereby excess margin from one instrument is transferred to another instrument to satisfy margin maintenance requirements. When cross margining, you use an instrument you already own as collateral to acquire a new asset. Even if the new asset is of another type, thus increasing liquidity and financial flexibility.

Cross margining is an automatic function enabled for all EXANTE trading accounts.

With our all-in-one account structure, you will not need to open separate accounts to trade different types of assets. EXANTE allows you to invest in bonds or stocks to obtain leverage for buying different types of instruments, for example, futures or options.
