What is margin utilization and how is it calculated?
Margin utilization is the percentage of margin collateral that you are utilizing for margin products trading. If the margin utilization exceeds 100% there is a risk that your margin positions will be stopped out.
Margin Utilization is calculated as = (100 * Used for margin) / (Account value + Other collateral – Not available as margin collateral).
All the data can be found in the Account Summary.
In this example, the client has EUR 13,861.63 - EUR 888.42 = EUR 12,973.21 as available margin in total. Of these EUR 12,973.21 currently 3,049.51 is used for margin requirements. 3,049.51/12,973.21 = 24% margin utilization.
