Hi,guys !
What is the largest margin I can find at online broker? Does anybody know? I was able to find brokers with maximum margin 1/4 and not more :(
Why brokers can't propose margin for stocks like margin for FOREX with 1/100 or 1/200 leverage? Yes, it's dangerous to trade with such margin but if I know what I'm doing why I can't trade with such margin?
any suggestions welcome
thanx in advance
Alex

shelupinin,

I'm pretty sure 4:1 is the highest margin you'll find. If I'm not mistaken (and I may be <g>), this is limited by the SEC, so I doubt you'll find any higher.

If you want more leverage, you may want to consider options...

HTH,

Trade options at your own risk...

Hi, Cegis !
Thanx for answer, but I know nothing about options :( Which margin I can find to trade options? Do you know? I guess technical analysis and indicators are the same for stocks and options so there is no big difference what to trade, stocks or options...

shelupinin,

There's a WORLD of difference between stocks and options!

The leverage I spoke of is based on the fact that "you control a $50 stock for $1" (for example). Margin requirements are actually HIGHER for options, but with the leverage that you can get, I suppose it could be considered "more margin" in a way.

Options can be very risky, and somewhere I read that 90% of all options expire worthless. DON'T TRADE OPTIONS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND THE RISKS!

HTH,

C
