Margin Zones

Modified on Mon, 08 May 2023 at 07:13 PM

This indicator allows you to automatically calculate and visualize margin zones to the specified parameters.

Type of indicator on the chart:


Margin Zone Level = Margin / Price Tick.

For example, take the euro futures, the ticker 6E.

Margin = $ 2300

Tick price = $ 6.25

Marginal zone level = 2300 / 6.25 = 368 ticks. This means that the margin zone will be built at a distance of 368 ticks from the initial price. The height of the marginal zone is 10% of this distance, that is, 36 ticks.
