“Margin Trading” and “Leveraged Trading” is essentially the same thing: the ability to trade in amounts larger than the amount of money in your account. Valbury Asia Futures offers a leverage of 100:1 or 1% margin requirement for FX products. This simply means Client can trade up to 100 times the amount of cash actually deposited in his/her account.

VAF’s Vanguard platform allows Clients to track his/her margin in real time, constantly updating in accordance to the moving prices. Clients can monitor their margin in the Margin/Available Balance window found on the lower right-hand corner of the Vanguard platform.
In this window Clients can see their Used Margin and Available Margin which combined together equal Clients’ Virtual Balance. Used Margin is the amount of money that needs to be set aside as a deposit to hold Client’s trade. The Available Margin is the amount of money in Client’s account that is available to open additional positions or to absorb any losses, and it fluctuates together with the Virtual Balance figure. Should the Available Margin drops below a certain threshold then the system will issue a Margin Call notifying Client of the situation.
