Resolved: Leverage ratio 100:1

How could we obtain such large ratio? Or do we have maintenance margin in denominator which can only be represented as reserved cash that can't be traded on?

Hello Ruslan!

Thanks for reaching out!

A 100 to 1 margin ratio means that an investor can borrow up to 100 times the amount of their initial investment to purchase securities. However, such a high margin ratio is typically only available for professional or institutional investors, and not for individual retail investors.

In general, to obtain a 100 to 1 margin ratio, an investor would need to work with a broker that offers such high levels of margin financing. The broker would typically require the investor to meet certain eligibility criteria, such as having a high net worth, a track record of successful trading, and a strong understanding of the risks involved in margin trading.

Hope this helps!
