Margin required: It is the amount of money your broker requires from you to open a position. It is expressed in percentages. Account margin: This is just another phrase for your trading bankroll. It s the total amount of money you have in your trading account. Used margin: The amount of money that your broker has locked up to keep your current positions open. While this money is still yours, you can t touch it until your broker gives it back to you either when you close your current positions or when you receive a margin call. Usable margin: This is the money in your account that is available to open new positions. Margin call: You get this when the amount of money in your account cannot cover your possible loss. It happens when your equity falls below your used margin. If a margin call occurs, some or all open positions will be closed by the broker

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
