Thread: Newbie question about Forex trading risk...

  1. #1
    I understand that it's easy to lose your cash fairly quickly trading forex particularly with higher leverage, but let us say someone opened an account with very little cash. Let's use $200 for instance. Is it possible to lose over that $200 you deposited into your account? Like can the forex brooker say you owe them money because of your losses? Or is that $200 the absolute?

    For example, a mini contract together with my retail broker (cms) ties up $25 of the money. If I begin to drop money and my account falls below $25 the broker will shut the trade before I hit zero.

    Hope that helps.
    Ok thanks... And it was CMS that I would eventually be considering opening an account with. I was searching through their online contract and I only wanted to be sure I had been reading everything right.

    The retail broker will close any open trades which you have if your margin requirements are surpassed.
