- To calculate your Margin Requirements, you would need the number of Lots, Prices, and Contract Size, which can be obtained from your MetaTrader and the Leverage.
- The equation to calculate your margin is the following: Lots x ( Price x Contract Size ) ÷ Leverage.

> Let's say that your account's leverage is set as 500.
> The equation would be 1 x ( 0.90265 x 100,000 ) ÷ 500 = $180.53
> So the margin requirement for Instrument USDCHF with the above details would be: $180.53
