FBS Trading Conditions Frequently Asked Questions - What are Margin Call and Stop Out levels?

What are Margin Call and Stop Out levels?

Margin Call is an allowed margin level (40% and lower). At this point, the company is entitled but not liable to close all open positions of a Client due to the lack of free margin. Stop Out is a minimal allowed level of margin (20% and lower) at which the trading program will start to close Client’s open positions one by one in order to prevent further losses that lead to negative balance (below 0 USD).


How can I calculate one point value?

You can use our Trader’s calculator to make the calculation. You can also calculate one point value using the following formula: OnePointValue = (Contract × (Price + OnePoint)) - (Contract × Price), where:
• OnePointValue — one point value in the quote currency;
• Contract — contract size in the base currency;
• Price — price of the currency pair;
• OnePoint — price tick (one point). Example. Calculation of one point value for GBPCHF on a USD account.
• Lot – 1.25.
• Trading instrument (currency pair) – GBPCHF.
• GBPCHF rate – 1.47125.
• Contract – 125 000 GBP.
• USDCHF rate – 0.94950. OnePointValue = (125 000 x (1.47125 + 0.00001)) – (125 000 x 1.47125) = 183 907.5 - 183 906.25 = 1.25 CHF To convert the amount in USD: OnePointValue = 1.25 CHF / 0.94950 = 1.31 USD.
