MARGIN REQUIRMENTS 

SwissFT offers low day trading margins to accommodate traders that require high leverage to trade their accounts. The lower the margin, especially Day Trading Margins, the higher the leverage and riskier the trade. Leverage can work for you as well as against you, it magnifies gains as well as losses.
