Margin call / Stop out levels
Margin Call @ 120% margin Level
Margin level is calculated by Equity divided by used margin. It is advised that you should either close off positions to free up margin or add additional funds to increase available margin.
Margin Stop Out @ 100% margin Level
This means that Equity divided by used margin equals 1. In other words equity has dropped so low that it equals the used margin. For example if you have $5,000 balance, $500 margin and a -$4,500 sustained loss resulting in $500 running equity.
