New to CFD trading and trying to calculate the ‘margin call’ stock price and ‘positions will close’ stock price for a spreadsheet. I’ve read the recent threads with the BTC example yet can’t get my head around the margin figures, despite the formulae being there. Status wise I’m getting my head around but with the £ to $ conversion integrated it becomes slightly more complex to consistently alter on a spreadsheet.
- Over 50% -> [Total funds / (Total Funds + Blocked funds)] x 100%
- Under 50% -> (Total funds / Blocked funds) x 50%
Any help please? I’m just trying to understand when to get out to prevent the automatic close out, at the 25%, in terms of instrument price and total loss, hence the request.
