What is a Margin Call?

Should your equity fall below the maintenance margin amount, Plus500 may make a Margin Call or provide you with a certain time frame to add funds to the account or to close the position(s) yourself. In the event that you have not met the maintenance margin requirement by the end of the grace period or your account has gone into negative equity, the position(s) will be closed at the price available on our platform at the relevant time.
