How do you Calculate Margin Rates?

*May be subject to a 1% surcharge applied to the spread if financing is not pre-arranged.

  1. The applied rate may be reduced if pre-arranged. Please contact Customer Service to discuss further.

  • Costs for position borrowing of stocks with special considerations (for example hard to borrow instruments) are usually higher than for normal availability stocks. These additional costs will be passed on in the form of lower short stock credit interest. Please note that this may lead to a net debit short stock credit interest in the event that the costs to borrow exceed the interest earned. In order to view the indicative short stock interest rates for a specific stock, we recommend that clients use the Short Stock (SLB) Availability Tool in the Support > Tools menu in Account Management.


* The tiered rate is based on your margin balance - View Margin Rate Tiers page to find out more information.
