Initial Margin 3% - 15% depending on contract - Clients who hold open positions require what is called margin. Margin is calculated as the amount of money you must have in your account to satisfy Capital Spreads that you are able to honour your debt should your bet lose money.
 
Overnight Interest Charge - LONG +2% RFR (Relevant Funding Rate). The RFR is generally equivalent to the base rate of the underlying currency of the country of the market concerned. If your position is long, this equates to real market cash exposure and so interest maybe charged for each day the position is held overnight. For further details please see the FAQs section on our website.
 
Overnight Interest Charge - SHORT: -2% RFR (Relevant Funding Rate). See explanation above. However, if your position is short, an interest return may be paid on these equivalent cash funds.
