Different margin value for Forex long/short?

Hi,

I noted today in the demo account the margin calculation is different between long/short for Forex.
If i create a new order of 5000 euro/usd, the margin for sell is €166.5, while for buy it is zero.
Shouldn’t it be the same?

Do you already have a sell position open? The buy would just be netting off that.
