1. Margin account. Suppose the margin requirement is as follows.
p>=$2: 50% margin
$1.75<=P<$2: 40% margin
$1.50<=P<$1.75: 20% Margin
P<$1.50: No margin
A client buys 1,000 shares of ABC on margin at $1.8. What is the cash put up by the client? If
the prices falls to $1.6, what is the cash needed to put into the margin account?
Solution: The client put up $1080. If the price falls to $1.6, he will put $400 into the margin
Client buys 1,000 shares of ABC on margin at $1.8
Cost: $1,800=1000*1.8
Margin loan @ 40%: 720=1800*40%
Margin: ie., cash put up by client: $1,080=1800-720
If price falls to $1.60
New Value: $1,600=1000*1.6
Margin Loan @ 20%: 320=1600*20%
Current equity: $ 880 =original margin-loss in equity
Margin Call, ie., extra cash needed $ 400
=new value-new margin loan-current
