What does a “Margin” mean and how is it calculated?
A margin is a safety amount for funds which are being blocked by a broker in order to open a position.
In order to calculate the margin amount you should divide the position volume by the leverage size. For example, if position size is 100,000 EUR and leverage size is 1:500, then the margin will be 100,000/500 = 200 EUR.
