How can I avoid a Margin Call?

Customers should monitor their balance at all times and make sure that they have sufficient funds in their trading account to maintain their open positions. Moreover, customers can request to receive a notification by email/SMS/Push in case the account's equity is getting close to the total maintenance margin value. To do so, click on “Account” → “Notifications” or if you are using the mobile apps, click on “Menu” → "Price Alerts” → ”Notifications”.

This service is free of charge and sent through public telecommunications, therefore we cannot guarantee that you will receive these notifications. For more information, please read “Do you offer a Notifications service?
