Commodities Margins

The margin requirement for CFDs is variable and depends on two factors: (1) the chosen account leverage and (2) the contract value of the CFD. The initial margin is determined at the time the position is opened. This margin can be derived by multiplying the price level of the index or commodity with its point value (see our contract specifications table). This total is the contract value to which the leverage is applied. Then the total is converted into the account’s currency (with the current exchange rate).

Please note: you have to select your account leverage to see the required margin for the relevant contracts:
