Margin Requirements for Metals and Energies

The margin requirement of all Precious Metal CFDs is 1% notional value, as in the leverage is fixed to 1:100.

For Natural Gas and Oils, you will be required the fixed margin for trading as follows:

NGAS 50USD/45EUR per lot
UKOIL 100USD/75EUR per lot
USOIL 100USD/75EUR per lot

Example of Margin Calculation

Notional Value* / 100

Notional Value = Number of ounces × Current Market Price

For example if an account open 1 lot (or 100 ounces) of gold the required margin will be the following:

100 * 1585 /100 = $1585

The pip value for a 1 lot position is $1 per pip
