Risks of Margin Financing

Margin financing is a leveraged product. Its risk and return profiles are magnified several times. While the amount of the initial margin required to enter into a transaction may be small relative to the value of the transaction, a relatively small market movement would have a proportionately larger impact which may result in losses that are in excess of the initial margin/capital invested.

Margin Calls
If the market moves against the position that you are holding, it may result in margin calls or requests to place additional funds on deposits with the company to cover the shortfall in the margin requirement level to maintain the position.

If you are unable to put in the additional funds, your broker may close out the position without prior notice to you. In addition, you will still be liable for any further losses that may result from this.

Over-Exposure and Overtrading
Investors often look only at the margin required and fail to appreciate and take into account the full contract value. When trading in a large number of contracts, the total potential exposure of such contracts may be significantly beyond the investor's financial resources.
