When you trade on margin, you are borrowing money from MONEX BOOM against your existing stock holdings to buy even more stocks. Such power of leverage amplifies the stocks' performance – it makes losses and gains greater than investing strictly on cash-only basis.
Before opening a margin account, it is important to be aware of the features and risks associated with margin trading, especially to understand what will happen if the market prices of your stock holdings decline.
MONEX BOOM will charge interest on the margin loan at H.K. Prime Rate plus 3 % p.a. or financing cost plus 3% p.a., whichever is higher, and the interest rate applied is subject to change from time to time.
The actual margin interest rate applicable to your margin account is printed on your account statements, under the note section of "Debit Interest Rate".
There will be a margin call when the margin loan (i.e. the amount you borrowed) is higher than the margin value (i.e. the amount of margin financing facility available) in your margin account.
It is generally due to the fall of market price of the marginable stocks you are holding (i.e. the collaterals). When the market value of the collaterals decreases, the margin value of your account will decrease accordingly.
Note: The list of marginable stocks and respective margin ratio, client's margin limit and margin interest rate are subject to change at the MONEX BOOM's discretion without prior notice.
