Trading on margin is used to increase a trader’s buying power. A trader is required to put up only a fraction of the funds they would normally need in order to open a much larger position. This fraction of fund acts as collateral which is called ‘initial margin’. Ariel would allow collateralised (margin) position leverage up to 20x.
Please be careful when dealing with high leverage as a small movement in the asset price will affect your position heavily. If the losses get closer to the initial margin, your position will be liquidated.
