A Margin Call is also referred to as an “MC3” or a “stop out”. All AvaTrade’s accounts are Margin Leveraged accounts. Traders must maintain adequate account balances to sustain their open positions.
On MT4 accounts, if your Equity level drops to 50% of your Margin, a Margin Call will occur.
Professional / Non – EU Customers
On MT4 accounts, if your Equity level drops to 10% of your Margin, a Margin Call will occur.
It is the trader's responsibility to maintain a sufficient level of margin in their account. If a Retail Account's Equity falls below 50% of Used Margin, the largest losing position in your account will be closed, along with subsequent positions until the account Equity Level returns to above 50%. If a Professional Customer Account’s Equity falls below 10% of Used Margin, the same process will be followed until the account Equity Level returns to above 10%.
In AvaOptions accounts, if your Net Liquidation Value drops below 25% of Required Margin, a Margin Call will occur and all positions will be closed.
