requirements between 2% and 5% (depending on the individual CFD).

Should the equity value of the account drop below the minimum
margin requirement, additional funds must be added.
Customers will be warned by the trading platform, at 100% margin
level, that they are getting close to automatic liquidation. Customers
will only get an automatic margin call notification if they are logged
into their trading platform. Therefore, customers are advised to log
into their trading platform on a regular basis to ensure they monitor
their Equity and any relevant notifications accordingly. Stock Trading Capital may also alert Customers by phone-call and/or by email that they are
getting close to automatic trade liquidation of their positions. The
Customer will be advised to deposit additional funds into their account
or instructed to reduce/close out current open positions.
Customers are also warned that the moment their margin level falls
below 20%, the platform will automatically liquidate their positions.
This will be done without further reference to the Customer. Once an
account reaches a Margin Call warning level, it is possible that the
margin level could increase above 100%. Should this happen the Margin
Call process will reset. If the Margin Call Warning levels are reached
again, the Margin Call process will start again. Closure of positions
will be done on the basis of best execution prices available to

Customers are responsible for placing their own Stop Loss Orders to minimize losses.
In addition, Stock Trading Capital may, from time to time and at our best
effort, contact a customer and request that said customer will deposit
additional Collateral to secure his or her obligations. Any call for
additional margin shall not be deemed precedent for future call nor
future waiver of liquidation rights by Stock Trading Capital.
