What is my margin level?

In the above example, the ZAR 20 000 is referred to as the margin; this is the "deposit" to open the position and must be maintained to keep your exposure.

If the market goes against the client, they may be required to deposit more funds in their account to keep their ZAR 100 000 exposure. This is referred to as the maintenance margin.
