Under what circumstances might my positions be closed out?
You will receive a margin call when your open position falls below 3% of the gross principal value of the contract. If you do not return your portfolio to the required margin level – 3% of the contract value – SHKFX, without further notice, will auto liquidate your position if the margin falls to 1%.
E.g.: You sell 100,000 EUR at the rate 1.3000, 1 pips = USD10
5% initial margin = USD130,000 x 5% = USD6,500
3% margin call = USD130,000 x 3% = USD3,900, that means when your balance drops below to USD3,900, you will receive a margin call by email. At that time, the price has gone from 1.3000 to 1.3260.
USD6,500-USD3,900 = USD2,600
USD2,600/ USD10 = 260pips
1.3000 + 0.0260 = 1.3260
We will request you to deposit money into your trading account. Otherwise, once your margin level drops to 1%, we will liquidate your position.
1% close out position = USD130,000 x 1% = USD1300, that means when your balance drops below to USD1300, we will close out your position automatically. At that time, the price has gone from 1.3000 to 1.3520
USD6500 – USD1300 = USD5200
USD5200 / USD10 = 520 pips
1.3000 + 0.0520 = 1.3520
