Margin trading

Hi all

For stock leverage trading, in case of the increasing stock price , whether the trader has the right to withdraw a portion of initial margin? if yes, which is the maximum withdraw amount?


Yes, you can withdraw excess margin.

I do not know whether it’s down to the maintenance margin or down only to the initial margin. My suspicion is that it’s down only to the initial margin; otherwise, everyone would post the initial margin today, then withdraw the money down to the maintenance margin tomorrow.

this is what the SEC says regarding margin withdrawal.
this is from 2002. maybe things have changed a little (in which case there should be a page on the SEC clarifying the changes in regulation)

btw, what is a special margin requirement?
