Minimum Margin

To purchase a security on margin, we require that you have at least $2,000 or 100 percent of the security’s purchase price (whichever value is less) deposited into your account. This is called the "margin minimum." If you are designated a pattern day trader, you must have $25,000 in portfolio value (minus any cryptocurrency positions) before you continue day trading.

Note: If you are borrowing on margin and fall under $2k portfolio value, you are at risk of a margin call and potential liquidation


Options trading entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Certain complex options strategies carry additional risk. To learn more about the risks associated with options trading, please review the options disclosure document entitled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options, available here or through https://www.theocc.com. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before trading options. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request.
