Margin trading is a trading with borrowed funds. The idea of such a trading is to borrow money from a broker and trade with funds greatly exceeding trader’s own. This pledge is called margin. Margin funds are measured by the currency of deposit (for instance, US dollar). Margin depends on liquidity of a trading instrument (products). The essential part of the margin trading mechanism is to provide a leverage. To calculate margin-based leverage, divide the margin amount by the total value of a transaction. For example, the ratio 1:100 shows that in order you can trade, the balance of your trading account have to be 100 times less than the value of a transaction.

Of course, the crocodile often fails in his hunting. Prey may be dodged and escape. But the crocodile never panics. He returns to the waiting position and prepares for the next opportunity. One weapon to face the uncertainty in the Forex market is the discipline. When the Forex market moves in uncertainty, then the pro trader will protect his/her accounts with a high self-discipline. They create trade rules for themselves in accordance with the strategies they use, and with high self discipline, they always follow the rules of the trade. Forex is the world that is free to a high extent. But every trader should create trade rules for himself and should be responsible for the trading rules. This is the factor that distinguishes a pro trader from a trader who failed.
