The table contains the maximum leverage allowed for each account type, as well as additional margin requirements according to different account balances.

For stock CFDs, special margin conditions are given:

Account type Leverage (Margin)
Beginner (NetTradeX), Micro (MetaTrader 4 and 5) 1:400 (0.25%)
Standard (Deposit < 50 000 USD | 50 000 EUR | 5 000 000 JPY) 1:200 (0.5%)
Standard (Deposit 50 000 – 100 000 USD | 50 000 – 100 000 EUR | 5 000 000 – 10 000 000 JPY) 1:100 (1%)
Standard (Deposit > 100 000 USD | 100 000 EUR | 10 000 000 JPY) 1:50 (2%)

In order to prevent customer arrears, when there is a loss, the company has the right to liquidate one or several customers’ positions on its own.

The forced liquidation occurs when the margin level is reached, that is, the equity (account balance + profit and loss) and the occupied margin.

The ratio is 10%. At this time, the first position to be closed is the position that the client has lost the most.

This situation is called ”margin shortage” (short margin).

For accounts on the NetTradeX platform, clients can apply (send an email to The company’s background) sets the limit level of “insufficient margin” to more than 10%; also can set the level of equity (account balance), when it is lower than this level, all positions will be automatically closed.

If the sum of currently opened positions is greater than or greater than 20 000 000.00 USD, the maximum leverage is 1:20 (5% margin).

On holidays and festivals, the margin requirement may increase by a factor of 2.

For example, if the leverage is 1:100 (margin 1%), it will correspondingly become 1:50 (margin 2%).

By the end of trading hours, the client must make his own open positions in accordance with the increased margin requirements to make corresponding changes.

Otherwise, the company will choose the client’s position to be fully or partially closed according to needs.

If in the account, the same instrument opens long and short positions with the same trading volume in the locked order state, then only one position margin is required.

That is, the margin for opening 2 locked orders is the same as for opening 2 unlocked single positions.

That is, when the same tool opens a lock order, the occupied margin will not increase.

In the account on the NetTradeX platform, in the absence of free margin, the lock order is based on the account’s equity.

The credit leverage of stock CFDs in the MT4 and MT5 platforms is 1:20 (margin 5%), and when the leverage of the NetTradeX account is lower than 1:20, then the leverage is equivalent to the leverage of the trading account.

For certain instruments with high volatility risk, the fixed margin is set independent of the account leverage of MetaTrader 4 and 5 accounts.

In NetTradeX, if the account leverage is equal to or higher than 1:20, the margin requirement is 1:20, and if it is lower than 1:20, it corresponds to the account leverage.
