If you have done it for many years, then why ask me?


When you are on margin, whether you are short or long, if the trade goes against you, you are liable to cover the margin call, depending on how much you had as liquid cash, sometimes you are able to buy 2-3 times your available buying power when on margin, depending on the securities you are purchasing.

Perfect example

But also for an instance if you are bull and you are using margin to buy a stock at 20 dollars, either waiting for great quarterly reports or data on the clinical's are missed, you will have to pay up for the margin difference, your liquid cash is 50,000 grand and your buying power is 150,000 grand and you buy the stock will maximum buying power 150,000 grand, if the trade loses 30% based on bad numbers or bad data on the clinical's, you lose 45,000 grand, then you are left with only 5000 grand liquid cash.
