A margin account, unlike a cash account, allows you to buy more than your capital using leverage. For example, if you have a 2 times leverage (or 50%), and your account size is 10,000$, you can actually buy up to 20,000$. This is great, but you need to understand how margin works. As a matter of fact, if you do not use proper position sizing and risk management measures, you can lose everything, and more!
Unfortunately, some of the trading platforms use a lot of technical terms that make things even harder to understand. Hence, I have created a guide showing how the margin account works with the Thinkorswim platform. You can download it for free by clicking the button below.
