*Not available on MetaTrader

** MMR on MetaTrader 10%. Tiered margining in place for larger position sizes on FOREX.com trading platforms, please refer to Market Information in the trading platform for more information.

Margin requirements are subject to change without notice, at the sole discretion of FOREX.com.

Should you have a position that is subject to an additional margin requirement we will contact you to make arrangements to cover it. This increased margin requirement will continue to apply at FOREX.com’s discretion, until the position size decreases and remains materially below the threshold for a sustained period. Partially closing the position will not automatically reduce your margin requirement.

Open positions are always required to be margined. The margin close out (MCO) process differs by trading platform. Learn more about the MCO for FOREX.com’s proprietary platform or MetaTrader 4.

To help limit your trading losses and ensure that your losses never exceed your account balance, our systems monitor your margin in near real-time. While our MCO process is designed to limit your trading losses and help ensure that total losses never exceed your total account balance, you do risk incurring losses greater than your account balance, especially during periods of extreme market volatility.

While it is not FOREX.com’s policy to hold clients responsible for modest negative balances, we do reserve the right to hold clients responsible for large debit balances and when special circumstances apply. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to manage your use of leverage carefully. Increasing leverage increases risk.
