Initial Margin Calculation Method:

As an example, if the client intends to trade a one standard Gold contract (100 Oz), and Gold current price is 1,900 $US/Oz, using a financial leverage of ( 1:200 ), the client should insert the numbers above in the following formula:

(Margin Factor x Traded Size x Current Price x Standard Contract Size) / (Leverage)

( 1 x 1 x 1900 x 100 ) / ( 200 ) = 950 $US

If the leverage selected is ( 1 : 100 ) then the Initial Margin would be calculated as follows:

( 1 x 1 x 1900 x 100 ) / ( 100 ) = 1,900 $US
