Question:How is margin requirement per order calculated on MT4 for FX and Metals?

Answer:

For the currency pairs, where USD is the base currency (e.g. USDCHF), the margin is calculated the following way:

Margin = Contract size/Leverage

where Contract size = 100 000 USD × order size

For the currency pairs, where USD is not the base currency (e.g. EURUSD), the margin is calculated the following way:

Margin = Current quotation × Contract size / Leverage

where Contract size = 100 000 units base currency × order size

For the cross currency pairs (e.g. GBPJPY), the margin is calculated the following way:

Margin = Current rate of base currency to USD × Contract size / Leverage

where Contract size = 100 000 units base currency × order size

For the spot metals (e.g. XAUUSD), the margin is calculated the following way:

Margin = Current quotation × Contract size / Leverage

where Contract size = Lot size (in troy oz) × order size
