Margin Interest

Long margin Interest

On Margin Accounts, Leverage interest is based on 1-month US Dollar LIBOR interest rate, but not less than 200 bps, plus mark-up. Long margin interest is charged daily on the cost of open long positions.

Short margin Interest

Short margin interest is calculated on a case by case basis depending on stock availability and prevailing prime brokers’ interest rates.

Leverage

Margin Accounts below $100,000 (considered “Reg T” accounts) are customarily extended a 6:1 intraday and 2:1 overnight leverage. Often, we may extend higher leverage (up to 30:1 on intraday and 6:1 on overnight positions).

Margin Accounts over $100,000 (considered “Portfolio Margin” accounts) are customarily extended an 8:1 intraday and 4:1 overnight leverage. Often, we may extend higher leverage (up to 40:1 on intraday and 10:1 on overnight positions).

Alaric Securities does not pay interest and does not apply charges on cash balances in Cash or Margin Accounts.
