Margin adjustment and calculation formula
Unlike the previous fixed margin model, FIBO will adopt the new floating margin calculation method from May 20, 2013 - the market price of the traded products will be related to the floating amount of the margin, that is, the investors will conduct on the FIBO platform The foreign exchange or precious metal trading margin may follow its market price changes.

Calculated as follows:
Margin = Lots * Contract Size * Market Price / Leverage
Note: The margin variable, Market Price, is specified as the market price of the straight product molecule traded on the trade.

For example, a trader with an account below USD50,000 (Customer A) does more on the FIBO platform at 1.3050Euro / dollarCurrency pair, the volume is a mini hand, then the client has the margin in the order transaction is:
Margin = 1 Lot * 10,000 (Contract size) * 1.3050 (Market Price) / 100 (Leverage) = 130.50 (USD)

If the above investors in the 99.80 stalls to do more than 1 mini-hand dollar / yen, then the order has been deposited with the margin (fixed) as follows:
Margin = 1 Lot * 10,000 (Contract size) * 1 (Market Price) / 100 (Leverage) = 100.00 (USD)

Again, when the trader is short 1 on the FIBO platform at 0.9460USD / CHFThe currency pair, due to the direct market price of its numerator (in USD), is 1, and the amount of used margin (fixed) for that user for the moment when the order is placed is:
Margin = 1 Lot * 10,000 (Contract size) * 1 (Market Price) / 100 (Leverage) = 100.00 (USD)

Here are some ways to calculate margin for Forex cross-trades and gold products:

For example, Customer A is short 2 Mini hand on the FIBO platform at 102.20AUD / JPY, While the direct selling price of AUD / USD at this moment is 1.0304, then the existing margin for customer A in order fulfillment is:
Margin = 2Lots * 10,000 (Contract Size) * 1.0304 (Market Price) / 100 (Leverage) = 206.08 (USD)
Note: The used margin will follow the change of AUD / USD market price.

In addition, when Customer A is short on the FIBO platform at 0.8520, 5 A mini handEuro / British pound, While at this time the molecular straight disk euro / dollar quoted at 1.3048, then the user's margin in the transaction:
Margin = 5Lots * 10,000 (Contract Size) * 1.3048 (Market Price) / 100 (Leverage) = 652.40 (USD)
Note: The used margin will follow the changes in the market price of EUR / USD.

Finally, the new margin deposit also applies to gold and silver products traded by investors on the FIBO platform. Example: Customer A is short 10 Mini hand at 1440.00 USDgold, The order transaction, the used margin is:
Margin = 10Lots * 10 (Contract Size) * 1440 (Market Price) / 100 (Leverage) = 1440.00 (USD)
Note: The used margin will be adjusted according to the change of gold price (XAU / USD).
