# Example of How Does 100% Indices Trading Margin Requirement Work?

Margin requirement is the percent of the trade transaction value that a indices trader must maintain in order to continue holding the open trade positions that have been opened using stock indices trading leverage.

## Example of How Does 100% Indices Trading Margin Requirement Work

## Now if Your Indices Trading Leverage is 100:1

When trading if you have $1,000 and use option 100:1 and buy 1 standard lot for $100,000 your indices trading margin on this trade transaction is the $1000 dollars in your stock indices trading account, this is the money that you will lose if your open trade transaction goes against you the other $99,000 that is borrowed from the stock indices trading broker, the stock indices broker will close the open indices trading transactions automatically once your $1,000 has been taken by the stock indices trading market.

But this is if your indices broker has set 0% Indices Trading Margin Requirement before closing your stock indices trades automatically.

For 20% Indices Trading Margin Requirement before closing your stock indices trades automatically, then your transactions will be closed once your balance gets to $200

For 50% Indices Trading Margin Requirement of this level before closing your stock indices trades automatically, then your transactions will be closed once your balance gets to $500

If the indices broker sets 100% Indices Trading Margin Requirement of this level before closing your open positions automatically, then your trade will be closed once your balance gets to $1,000: Meaning the indices trade will close out as soon as you execute it because even **if you pay 1 pip spread your account balance will get to $990** and the needed percentage is 100% i.e. 1,000 dollars, therefore your orders will immediately get closed.

Most indices brokers do not set 100% requirement, but there are those indices brokers that set 100% Indices Trading Margin Requirement or 50% Indices Trading Margin Requirement are not suitable for you at all, choose those set 20% margin requirements, in fact, those that set at 20% are some of the best because the likely hood they close out your indices trade is reduced as shown in the examples above.
