> You would need to obtain the Price of your Instrument from your MetaTrader as shown below. 

> To locate your Contract Size, you would need to first right-click on the Instrument and select Specifications.

> After acquiring the above information, you would just need the leverage of your account and you are able to calculate your margin requirement. 

> 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
