    Margin Requirements for FOREX.com

    I was just talking to support at FOREX.com, trying to find out about margin requirements to trade certain currency pairs. They told me that NT would have a table of the requirements for each of the pairs, as Gain Capital is only acting as the Clearinghouse for NT.

    So as an example, if I have a $5K account, and I want to trade the EUR/USD or JPY/USD pair, how can I find how many lots I can trade on a 100:1 leverage account?

    Regards,

    Thomas.

    Standard Lot = 100K, so on a 5K account you have 5000 x 100 margin which is 500,000 which means you can likely trade up to 5 lots.

      Is this true for any currency pair?

      Ray,

      Thanks for getting back to me, is that true regardless of the currency pair I trade?

      Regards,

      Thomas

        Should be the case from my understanding but only GAIN can confirm that. Not sure why they referred you to us on this matter.
