Margin = (Trade Size * Contract Size) / Leverage

For example...

Let's say you have a trading account denominated in USD, and you want to open a position of 1 standard lot (100,000 units) on EUR/USD with a leverage of 1:100.

Trade Size = 1 lot Contract Size = 100,000 (standard lot size for EUR/USD) Leverage = 100

Margin = (1 * 100,000) / 100 Margin = \$1,000

In this example, you would need \$1,000 of margin to open the 1-lot position on EUR/USD with a leverage of 1:100. It's important to note that margin requirements can vary between brokers and different currency pairs, so it's always recommended to check with your specific broker or trading platform for their margin calculations and requirements.
