If you keep using your increased equity to take more trades(Maximising leverage) then the Buffer would still be required.
You could simply use the equity in your holdings to be used as security thus releasing cash.
Just means that the amount youd be given on margin would reduce.
I personally place an amount each week into the loan to increase my available funds.
The interest rate you have is better than any Ive seen.
So is your Brokerage at $28.
If your doing only a few trades a month using a long term method then the extra 10% on buffer maybe benificial.
But if shorter timeframe then $ 60 maybe a killer.
But then ofcourse you know all that so in answer to your question.
