Calculating Trade Margin for Stock Symbols Using Margin Calculator API

How do I calculate the margin required for trading a specific stock symbol?

To determine the margin required for a specific stock symbol, you should use the Margin Calculator API, particularly the Span Margin Calculator. This tool requires several inputs to accurately calculate the margin:
  1. Symbol: Input the specific stock symbol for which you want to calculate the margin.
  2. Quantity: Specify the number of shares or contracts you intend to trade.
  3. Side: Indicate the nature of the trade - use '1' for a buy order or '-1' for a sell order.
  4. Type: Define the order type (e.g., market order, limit order).
  5. Product Type: Specify the type of product you are trading (e.g., futures, options).
  6. Limit Price: Provide the limit price for the order, if applicable.
  7. Stop Loss Price: Include the stop loss price, if you have set one for the trade.
By providing these details, the Margin Calculator API will compute the necessary margin for your intended trade, helping you to plan your trades effectively.
