Margin and Leverage


Margin Protection

Margin maintenance is monitored in real time to ensure that the maximum risk does not exceed the account balance.

Margin Ratio

The dynamic leverage of your trading account will vary depending on the margin used to trade and the amount deposited, as well as the valuation gain or loss. This means that as the volume of trades increases, the margin requirement increases in proportion to the dynamic leverage of each instrument.

Margin Monitor.

SvoFX allows you to monitor your risk exposure in real time by monitoring margin usage and margin surplus.

The combination of working capital and surplus margin is the effective margin of the account. Working margin is the money that needs to be held as a deposit in order to execute a trade. (For example, with 100x leverage, you must maintain 1% of the trade amount as margin requirements. Margin is the balance available to take additional positions or to absorb losses, which may vary depending on the trading conditions.

Margin Call

Although it is your responsibility to monitor the movement of your trading account, SvoFX follows a policy of margin calls to ensure that the maximum possible risk does not exceed the total value of your account.

If the margin maintenance rate of an account is below the company’s stated level, we will make a margin call to warn you that there are not enough funds to maintain the open positions.

Cutting Losses

The loss-cut level is the margin maintenance rate at which a position is automatically settled. If the margin maintenance rate of an account falls below the Company’s stated level, a loss-cut will be executed to automatically close the open positions.

Zero Cut

In the unlikely event that the loss-cut does not occur in time and the loss exceeds the margin and becomes negative, the account balance is reduced to zero so that no additional margin is required.
When a position is closed with a negative balance, an automatic reset system is employed that resets the position immediately. No application or procedure for zero-cut is required.

The “Zero Cut/Zero Reset System” with no additional margin completely protects you from the risk of losing more than the amount of your deposit.


Profitability and Optimality

Optimally balanced and sound leverage to maximize profitability

Recommended Leverage

Leverage allows you to trade a position that is greater than or equal to your account balance. Leverage is expressed in ratios such as 10:1 (10x), 50:1 (50x) and 100:1 (100x). Let’s say you have $1,000 in your trading account. If you want to make a trade on the scale of $100,000 against the yen, you will have a leverage of 100:1.

SvoFX recommends a leverage range of 100x, which is the optimum capital and trading balance for both novice and expert traders, from short term to long term asset management.

Maximum Leverage

Max. 2000x

In addition to the recommended leverage, the following leverage options are available: 1:1 (1x), 2:1 (2x), 5:1 (5x), 10:1 (10x), 20:1 (20x), 50:1 (50x) for low risk, 200:1 (200x) for profitability, 500:1 (500x), 1,000:1 (1000x) for high leverage, 2,000:1 (2,000x) can be selected.
High leverage is supported only for FX and not for other instruments (assets). The maximum leverage for CFDs on stocks and cryptocurrencies is 20x.

Risk of Leverage

Leverage can allow you to make a large amount of profit with a relatively small initial investment. On the other hand, without proper risk management, it can increase your losses many times over.

SvoFX offers a leverage range of 1-2000x, but the higher the leverage, the more pressure you put on your margin maintenance and the higher your risk level. We recommend that you plan ahead and trade with plenty of time to spare.
