About Margin

A margin is the amount of collateral to cover any credit risks arising during the traders trading operations.

The margin is expressed as the percentage of position size (e.g. 5% or 1%), and the only real reason for having funds in the traders trading account is to ensure sufficient margin. On a 1% margin, for instance, a position of $1,000,000 will require a deposit of $10,000.

The margin in the trader’s account needs to be equal or above 100% in order for the traders to be able to open new trades unless the new trades will result in the traders account being fully hedged.

About Leverage

Using leverage means that traders can trade positions larger than the amount of money in the trader’s account. Leverage amount is expressed as a ratio, for instance, 50:1, 100:1, or 500:1. Assuming that the traders have $1,000 in the trading account and the traders ticket sizes of 500,000 USD/JPY, the traders leverage will equate 500:1.

How would it be possible to trade 500 times the amount the traders have at their disposal?XM’ customers have a free short-term credit allowance whenever they trade on margin: this enables them to purchase an amount that exceeds their account value. Without this allowance, XM’s customers would only be able to buy or sell tickets of $1,000 at a time.

XM Leverage

Depending on the account type you open at XM, you can choose the leverage on a scale from 1:1 to 888:1. Margin requirements do not change during the week, nor do they widen overnight or at weekends. Moreover, at XM you have the option to request either the increase or the decrease of the chosen leverage.


Th XM provides a leverage range that helps trader choose their preferred risk level. At the same time, we do not recommend trading close to a leverage of 888:1 due to the high risk it involves.

Margin Monitoring

XM’s clients can control in real-time risk exposure by monitoring their used and free margin.

Used and free margin together make up your equity. Used margin refers to the amount of money you need to deposit to hold the trade (e.g. if you set your account at a leverage of 100:1, the margin that you will need to set aside is 1% of your trade size). The free margin is the amount of money you left in your trading account, and it fluctuates according to your account equity; you can open additional positions with it, or absorb any losses.

Margin Call

Although each client is fully responsible for monitoring their trading account activity, XM follows a margin call policy to guarantee that your maximum possible risk does not exceed your account equity.

As soon as your account equity drops below 50% of the margin needed to maintain your open positions, we will attempt to notify you with a margin call warning you that you do not have sufficient equity to support open positions.

In case you are a client accustomed to telephone trading and we feel that you can’t maintain your open positions, you may receive a margin call from our dealers, advising you to deposit a sufficient amount in order to maintain your open positions.
