Margin call is the term when account value (ie total deposits plus or minus any profits/losses) falls below margin requirements.
Margin call is initiated once the Margin Utilization reaches 100%. In this situation client will be prevented from opening additional new exposure but will be able to keep the existing positions as long as the margin utilization is below 100%.
Should the margin utilization exceed 100%, the client will be in breach of margin requirements and EXANTE will have rights to decrease or fully liquidate client’s open positions at any moment. It is a client’s responsibility to keep enough funds to fully cover margin requirements of open positions.
