**The margin level** is the ratio of the trading account balance to the used margin. The margin level shows how much money you have available for margin trading.

Expressed as a percentage, margin level is calculated as:

** Margin level = equity / used margin **(on our platform presented as "invested", see the screenshot)

*x 100%**where *

- **equity **is the sum of your trading account balance +/- any floating P/L on open positions;

- **used margin** (on our platform presented as "invested", *see the screenshot*) is the amount of your trading account balance that is initially withheld when you open a position on margin.

🛎 If your margin level is lower than 100%, you'll receive a *margin call*.

To increase your margin level you will need to deposit funds into your account or reduce your exposure to the market.

❗️**Please note! In order to be able to withdraw, your margin level must be higher than 150%. Please also bear in mind that the withdrawal fees are not included. **

What to do if you can't withdraw because your margin level is below 150%?

If possible, you can close any of your open positions. It will reduce the exposure and will help to increase the margin level above 150%.

**Please note that if you chose to close any of your open positions, your floating P&L and Equity will be affected.**
