Futures contracts are traded on a margin that allows clients to take advantage of a small margin deposit for a much greater market effect.
Initial margin is the contract guarantee required to open a futures position.
After opening the Futures position, you must maintain the required Maintenance margin in your account at all times.
If the funds in your account fall below the Maintenance margin, you will be subject to a margin call to deposit more funds to cover positions or close positions. You will normally be notified via our trading platform and by email. If the margin situation is not resolved, Royal Capital may close positions on your behalf.
