Margin is the amount of money in your account used to support an open position. The higher the margin to equity ratio the greater the chance you will have a margin call from your broker signalling that you do not have enough cash in your account to support your current open positions.
The alert is triggered when this ratio reaches 70% of margin to account equity. Our research suggests that at this tipping point the future success of an account is seriously compromised.
We will share some deeper research on this subject in our research section in the near future.
