In certain circumstances, the available margin may not be sufficient to cover possible losses. In such a case we speak of a „Margin call“ whereby the deposit of further cash or securities is required to maintain the speculation strategy. If this is not done within a specific term (for ex. 24 hours), the risk position must be closed. This mechanism must protect against negative account balances. Even then, in exceptional cases, fast market situations may occur, resulting in negative account balances. This requires a permanent margin call. However, as a Customer, you can make the corresponding strategy stipulations in order to substantially or wholly avoid this risk.
