MetaTrader 4 Margin Account Requirements
|Account Type||Max. leverage (Min. margin)|
|Standard, Deposit < 50 000 USD / EUR / GBP (500 000 JPY)||1:200 (0.5%)|
|Standard, Deposit 50 000 - 100 000 USD / EUR / GBP (500 000 - 10 000 000 JPY)||1:100 (1%)|

In order to avoid any client liabilities towards the company, the company can close one or several client’s positions if there are losses over them. Closing is performed if margin level, i.e. ratio of the balance taking into account open positions to the margin value, reaches 10%. In this case the first position to close will be the most unprofitable. This situation is called “short margin”.
When total amount of open positions equals or exceeds 20 000 000 USD / EUR / GBP (2 000 000 000 JPY), maximum available leverage is 20:1 (or 5% margin of a total open position volume).
For weekends and holidays margin requirements may be increased twice with prior notification. This means that leverage 100:1 or requirement margin of 1% will become 50:1 or requirement margin 2%. The client must get his opened position according to the increased margin demands by the end of trading. If the client fails to do so, the company has a right, but not responsibility, to reduce the client’s position according to the prices that set at the end of the trades. In this case the company will choose which of the client’s positions will be reduced or closed.
