Important Notes:

1. Margin interest rates vary in accordance with the base rate and the size of the debit balance. The base rate may be adjusted at TradeStation’s discretion with reference to commercially recognized interest rates, current market trends, liquidity in the marketplace, and other industry conditions, and is subject to change without prior notice.

Margin requirements are structured for a diversified portfolio. Accounts that are using margin for holding concentrated positions may be asked to make immediate changes.

Margin trading involves risks and it is important that you fully understand those risks before trading on margin. The FINRA Margin Disclosure Statement outlines many of those risks, including:

  • You can lose more funds than you deposit in your margin account.
  • Your brokerage firm can force the sale of securities in your account.
  • Your brokerage firm can sell your securities without contacting you.
  • You are not entitled to an extension of time on a margin call.
