Maintenance margin is the minimum amount of equity that must be maintained in a margin position.
FINRA requires a 25% minimum on all symbols but our clearing firm may require a higher maintenance requirement on specific symbols.
The reason for a potentially higher maintenance requirement is because of the perceived volatility of a position. Utilizing positions with high maintenance requirements can potentially reduce the amount of credit you can borrow. Below is a table of all symbols that have a maintenance requirement other than 25%.
