Like all investments, trading Forex and other leveraged products like Contracts for Difference (CFDs) is speculative. Traders are not required to post the full financial value of the products they are trading, meaning they can trade on leverage and control a position that is typically a multiple of the value of equity in their trading account. One way traders can avoid margin calls is to make sure their accounts are adequately and sufficiently capitalized so that they can withstand adverse market moves. Another way traders can avoid margin calls is to use stops and limits when trading to best manage market risk. Stop orders and limit orders can help reduce the amount of risk that traders incur when opening and closing trading positions.
