    Hello people!

    I have a simple question.

    When does margin call occour on a real money account?

    1. When the free margin reaches 0

    or

    2. When the margin level reaches a number like 100% or 0?

    if the second, whats this number.

    Thank you.

    This varies from broker to broker. Some may cut you off at 30% available margin. Some may let you trade down to zero. I've seen a few that will let you go negative and then will deduct it from your bank account or credit card.

    Trade conservatively and apply strict risk management and you won't have to worry about margin calls.
