So I checked my account since some days, and after noticed all the settings on my trading212 platform were changed. I added the margin tag again, and it is what I noticed…
(This happened with all my positions but here is an example)
19 November I opened 1 position with Tesla at this price:
Screenshot of it’s values taken around 3 December (already after you changed margin requirements to 50%):
Now, here it is the screenshot at the current levels:
Can someone explain to me why margin increased? From what I understand if I open a position of one CFD @ 495.68$ and margin requirement is 50%, shouldn’t margin be 247.84$ (half the price) ?
Seeing the platform since I opened the position of the example above, margin increased by +45.43$ since I opened it on 19 November until 3 December…. and now increased +178,01$ since I bought it!
Can someone explain what’s going on please? Shouldn’t be Blocked Funds who change overtime because of swap fees instead of margin? Margin continues to rise, although the price I bought it remains obviously the same…
