How do I calculate my Margin requirements?

Initial Margin = (position's opening price*size of the trade)*initial margin percentage.
For example, let’s suppose you buy 30 Meta stocks CFDs for $75 each (a "Buy" position), then the value of the position would be 30*75=$2250. If the Initial margin percentage were 20%, then the required initial margin would be 20%*2250=$450.

Maintenance Margin = (position's opening price*size of the trade)*maintenance margin percentage.
For example, let’s suppose you buy 30 Meta stocks CFDs for $75 each (a "Buy" position), then the value of the position would be 30*75=$2250. If the maintenance margin percentage were 10%, then the required maintenance margin would be 10%*2250=$225.
