Say a stock has a required margin of 5% and you buy them using 20% of the price a deposit does that mean the price would have to fall 15% before you got a margin call ?
So say it costs $1000, the required margin is $50, you put down $200 and the shares fall in value to $300, you still wouldn't get a call (assuming the slippage or whatever they call it is not worth $100).
Also I buy my shares with CMC but don't use any leverage are they decent for CFDs ? I have heard bad things on this forum. I just want to get some leverage so it can be comparable to investment property.
