trade responsibly


Don’t invest what you can’t afford to lose.

Trading on margin comes with the risk of amplified losses. With interest charges, you could lose more money than you put in. Consider setting a stop-loss order to protect your initial capital.


Borrow just for the short-term to minimize costs.

Margin account holders are charged overnight interest rates (SWAP) for borrowing money. Generally, the more and longer you borrow, the more expensive it gets.


Plan ahead for margin calls.

Don’t let margin calls catch you by surprise and force you to liquidate prematurely. Monitor your accounts regularly.
