Stop Out & Margin Call

The margin refers to the minimum capital that you must have in your trading account in order to open trades.

A Margin Call will be given when your required margin reaches a certain level at which you will no longer be allowed to open additional operations by having a good part of your capital committed in various operations (or by having a very small capital to open a new operation).

In DUO Markets the Margin Call will be given when your Margin Level reaches 80%.

The Stop out level is the level from which some of your trades can begin to close automatically. This happens because your current capital is below the minimum necessary to keep your operations open. El Stop Out se dará cuando tu margen llegue al 50%.

The MT4 platform automatically calculates and displays your levels of used margin, free margin and margin level (%) so you can always know if you are close to the Margin Call or Stop Out level.

What is Leverage?

Leverage is an trading facility that the broker provides to its clients so that they can carry out operations that require a capital greater than the client's available capital. In that sense, leverage has a "multiplier" effect.

Advantages and disadvantages
of Leverage

+

Advantages

The main advantage of leverage is that it allows traders to pay only a fraction of the total position. That is, it allows them to have more operating capital.

-

Disadvantages

On the other hand, the main disadvantage of leverage is that you are exposed to a greater loss than if you carried out the same operation without leverage.

This is why leverage is considered a 'double-edged sword' as it enables higher profits, but also exposes traders to higher risks.
