Contract size, the normal pot is 100,000, except for the mini pot that may be 10,000 when all the values ​​have been obtained. We then put it in the formula.

This means that the margin used is 1000 USD.

Margin level or% Margin may be called the% security of the investment pot. The more it shows that it is now safe. Low left, indicating that it is not safe

The formula is
% Margin = x 100

For example, having a investment of 1,000 usd, trading 100 usd is equal to bringing the remaining 900 divided by 100 used and multiplying 100 = 900% left.
Or open another 150 Usd of wood, this will result in the remaining 750 divided by 250 used and multiply 100 = 300% left.
