The Initial margin is the collateral per contract required to open a Futures position.
After opening the Futures position you must maintain the required Maintenance margin in your account at all times.
See all initial and maintenance margin
If the funds in your account fall below the Maintenance margin, you will be subject to a margin call to either deposit more funds to cover the positions or close positions. Normally you will be notified through our trading platform and via e-mail. If the margin situation is not remedied, Saxo Capital Markets may close positions on your behalf.
